Florida Man Credits Psychic for Big Lucky Money Win

Wednesday April 20th 2016

A trip to a psychic has paid off for one man from St. Petersburg, Florida after he won a Lucky Money jackpot. Richard Klosterman and his wife were given a set of numbers on a visit to a fortune teller more than 20 years ago and have never given up hope that one day they would be rewarded with a significant sum of money.

They have entered a number of different lotteries over the past couple of decades, and in the Lucky Money drawing on Tuesday April 12th their numbers finally came up, with 4, 8, 9 and 20 appearing as the main balls and 12 as the Lucky Ball. The jackpot was worth $700,000 and the Klostermans opted for a one-off payment of $545,563.

On receiving their winnings, Richard explained why it made sense to them to stick with the psychic’s suggestions. “All of the numbers in some way related to our lives at the time,” he told lottery officials, as quoted in Patch. “We’ve been playing those same numbers on various lottery games ever since.”

Lucky Money is one of the most popular games offered by the Florida Lottery and offers players the chance to win great prizes. The aim of the game is to match four main numbers between 1 and 47 and one Lucky Ball between 1 and 17 to land the jackpot, which starts at a minimum of $500,000 and can grow as high as $2 million if there are rollovers.

Drawings take place every Tuesday and Friday night, so there will be another chance for ticket holders to play for fantastic prizes later in the week. The jackpot will be worth $650,000 on Friday and there is still time to schedule a meeting with a fortune teller if you find inspiration in the Klostermans’ story and want to become the next big winner!
