Psychic Reading For $2 Million Lotto Draw

Psychic Reading For $2 Million Lotto First Division Winners

A lucky Napier family will have a lot more faith in the supernatural after a reading from a clairvoyant predicted a positive event occurring in the near future – little did they know it would be a $2 million Lotto First Division windfall this week.

“One of our family members visited a clairvoyant earlier in the year, who predicted something great was going to happen to us in November, we had no idea that it would be a $2 million Lotto win!” says the ecstatic winners.

The family, who wish to remain anonymous, are regular Lotto players and purchased their winning ticket from Taradale Four Square in Napier.

“We knew the winning ticket had been sold at the store on the weekend, so thought we may have a small chance.

“I had joked to my wife that if I win, I’m gone,” laughs the husband.

“I called my wife from the shop to tell her we had won, and she thought it was a prank. It wasn’t until the retailer talked to her that she believed me,” says the happy husband.

After receiving the exciting news, the family celebrated with dinner in a restaurant. They plan on investing their winnings and giving some to charity.

“It’s great, because it allows us so many more opportunities. It still hasn’t sunk in yet,” says the shocked wife.
