NY lottery millionaire inspired by a dream

For Edwina Silvera, one dream led to another.

On Oct. 14, the 49-year-old West Haverstraw, New York, resident dreamed of her late father, who told her something special, a message she wanted to keep private, which inspired her to buy a scratch-off game that night.

"Normally I buy the $2 ticket and I decided why not splurge? So I did. And I'm glad that I did," Silvera told New York Lottery's Yolanda Vega on Friday at the Railroad Deli in Garnerville, where Silvera bought the winning ticket for $5.
