Australian uses Lottery Numbers that came to him in a Dream to win $1 million

An Australian has won $1 million using lottery numbers that came to him in a dream 13 years ago.

He’s been using them ever since and they eventually came good. He took home the Division One prize from the May 8 drawing.

Shocked to become a millionaire

The winner from Tasmania is stunned after becoming a millionaire. He told lottery officials that he checked his ticket online. “I was just stunned” he stated. The Australian had to take some time to let the news sink in a bit.

“I dreamt them one night – they appeared in my dream,” he told lottery officials. “I woke up and wrote them down, and I’ve been playing them ever since.” His dream lottery numbers hadn’t come up before but now they’re worth $1 million.

He knew that they would win big one day

Despite not having won a top prize, he wouldn’t give up on them. “They’ve won other prizes over the years, but this is the biggest prize so far,” he said.

The winner knew that his dream lottery numbers would see him good. “I thought one day I would see them all there.” The lucky winner claimed his prize on Monday. “It took a bit to get over it,” he exclaimed.
