Psychic key to Calif. man's $1 million Powerball win

PowerballPowerball: Psychic key to Calif. man's $1 million Powerball win

Rating:

A West Hollywood, California, man who won $1 million playing Powerball recently told California lottery officials that he might not have bought the ticket had it not been for an encounter with an online psychic.

Kevin Millard matched five out of six numbers in the Powerball draw on Sept. 19, winning a total prize of $1,009,368, the state lottery said in a news release on Friday.

Although he regularly played the lottery at one time, Millard had recently scaled back, except when it came to larger jackpots. But that weekend's jackpot — worth an estimated $208 million — wasn't enough to initially entice the 54-year-old man to play.

He explained, however, that his intuition to buy the tickets was ultimately the result of interacting with an online psychic, the release stated. Millard subsequently chose to abandon her once his free-trial ran out, according to the release.

"I said, 'Forget it. You just want money now,'" Millard recalled to lottery officials. "She would hit me periodically with messages saying 'Your money's coming. This year is a change for you.'"

While mulling over the decision to buy tickets for last weekend's game, he said the psychic's messages flashed through his mind.

"I thought, 'I gotta play a lottery ticket. Maybe she's right,'" Millard said in the release.

He ended up buying 10 Powerball tickets at Golden Rule Liquor, which is located at 7753 Santa Monica Blvd. in Los Angeles, according to officials.  It was the first time he had even been to the store.

One of the tickets matched five numbers, missing only the Powerball.

With no tickets matching all six numbers, the Powerball jackpot was expected to climb to an estimated $267 million for Saturday's drawing, according to the release.

Millard's run-in with a psychic might have led him to this point, but he's going to trust his own judgment when it comes to his winnings. "I'm moving forward, moving on," Millard said. "I don't want to squander it."

Because of his job with a property management company, Millard explained that he already has a place to live. Any real estate he might buy now would serve as an investment. "And use that money to work for me for the rest of my life," Millard said, as if predicting the future.

    So Kevin thinks it was the psychic that was channeling him the winning numbers, well he can go ahead & think that if it makes him happy. On a more serious note : There are millions of  players who have been using their children's birthdays, baptism dates, the parents anniversaries dates & so on for years and have come up empty. Anyone remember the infamous Miss Cleo?

            208 million wasn't enough to entice him to play? yet he listened to some phony psychics free advice that money was coming his way. difficult to feel glad for him.

                Oh my giddiant - Miss Cleo - yes I remember seeing those commercials.  Surely she must be wealthy from her own lottery winnings by now (typed wide-eyed-and-noddingly).  As far as birthday and anniversaries go - I am guilty of having those numbers in my group of 20 numbers that I bounce around in, and the most that I have won is 1600$.

                  I recall that Miss Cleo went to prison. I wonder if she predicted it???? Lol

                  This psychic did not even  give him numbers  to play. The sad part is that he was talking to an online psychic.

                  The United States of America won the lottery when we elected our new President Donald J. Trump. The Donald dazzles all!

                    He said he is moving forward but unfortunately you can't move forward without psychic help once you benefit. They will help tell you if your next girl friend is going to be crazy like you didn't know already or that everyone else will be calling you claiming to be an angel messenger . If you believe they help you then keep using it. At least your online psychic cost less than the real ones. The real psychic are the one you avoid they will suck your money like a vacum .

                      It wasn't that the psychic gave him the numbers, she gave him the encouragement to keep playing.

                      Congrats to him.

                          Perhaps it is true, that whatever message the brain repeatedly receives (vague or specific), can soon become engrained/accepted in one's thoughts/beliefs, AND can eventually become manifested.

                          Thinking of...

                            That's true Psychic cannot predict the numbers but they do see in the cards of money coming to him. It doesn't say how much or how huge the amount.She gave him the encouragement to keep playing and see the results. Tarot psychic know how to read the cards but it also depends how honest she was when it came to money.I do believe she knew what she was reading. Tarot doesn't give you the lottery numbers justWink the month or year when you will come into money.
