Psychic's numbers win lottery jackpot for Florida man

Florida LotteryFlorida Lottery: Psychic's numbers win lottery jackpot for Florida man

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — A 60-year-old St. Petersburg man is more than $500,000 richer courtesy of five lucky numbers suggested by a psychic more than 20 years ago.

According to the Florida Lottery, Richard Klosterman won the $700,000 Lucky Money jackpot drawing on April 12. Klosterman opted for a one-time, lump-sum payment that put his winnings at $545,563.20.

Those winnings, Klosterman told lottery officials, came courtesy of a trip his wife paid to a psychic more than 20 years ago. It seems the psychic supplied Mrs. Klosterman with five numbers that were representative of her.

"All of the numbers in some way related to our lives at the time," Richard Klosterman told lottery officials. "We've been playing those same numbers on various Lottery games ever since."

Klosterman purchased his winning ticket from the 7-Eleven at 2632 Park St. in St. Petersburg.

Lucky Money drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday night at 11:15 p.m. The game's jackpot starts at $500,000 and can roll over up to $2 million. "Once the Lucky Money jackpot reaches $2 million and there is no jackpot winner, the jackpot prize pool rolls down and increases the payouts on all of the lower-tier prize levels," the lotteryexplained on its website. Tickets are $1 each and call for four numbers and one "Lucky Ball" number.

The jackpot for the April 19 drawing is $550,000.

Klosterman's winning numbers in that April 12 drawing were 4, 8, 9, and 20, with Lucky Ball number 12, according to lottery records.

Klosterman isn't the only Tampa Bay area resident to take home a hefty prize in recent weeks. New Port Richey's Linda Gilliam, 66, won $2 million in the April 6, Powerball drawing. Her win was announced by the state on Friday, April 16. Gilliam bought her ticket at Publix, 40932 U.S. 19 N., in Tarpon Springs.

The next multi-state Powerball drawing is set for Wednesday, April 20. With no winner on Saturday, April 16 the prize has climbed to $227 million. Saturday's numbers were 3, 18, 25, 32 and 51 with 3 as the Powerball.

    So when will that psychic sue him for part of the winnings?  She gave him the numbers.    He should have kept his mouth shut.

      He doesn't have to keep is mouth shut because the psychic is already dead , in jail , or running from customers they milk a lot of money from. This psychic never hang around too long to see if there false prediction comes true they steal and run. You see they predict every thing except their own life. Beside if I knew this guy will be playing for twenty years I love to be his psychic for 20yrs lol. Troll

          Any money says if the media finds this person, and if he/she is still alive, they will.  That person will file a lawsuit for picking the winning numbers.  Look at the morons serving on juries now days, if a woman can sue McDonalds for 3 million because she was dumb enough to spill hot coffee on herself, then anyone can sue anyone for anything.

            People always misrepresent the facts of the McDonald's lawsuit...having never read the actual decision. McDonald's was using boiling water much higher than the normal temperature for making coffee. It was shown that they did this for corporate greed reasons and to save money. They wanted to squeeze as much out of the coffee bean as possible so they used ridiculous water temperature levels. The woman plaintiff suffered severe burns.

                Where did you get that info?  If thats true, which I doubt...What will happen to all those people when the dems force a 15 dollar minimum wage on companies?  Which include many more low-profit business' than McD's.  Can you say instead of taking home 250/week you're taking home nothing because you're laid-off.  Maybe the lottery will be their only hope.  I hope so, but not likely.

                  How can you say that?  The guy already stated he got the numbers from that person.  You kidding me?

                    If this is true????  The case is summarized on Wikipedia. There were hundreds of reports of burns prior to this case and McDonald's refused to offer her a dime. She had  to undergo skin grafting. Do some due diligence before insinuating some one is lying.  I also said I read the actual decision. 

                    The lottery should not be anyones hope. It is for entertainment only.

                      Artist I like your posts; however, wikipedia was the subject of a FOX news story last weekend.  Seems some wiki editors are paid to introduce false info onto that site.   I would believe wiki  about as far as I could pee up wind in a hurricane.  Also I agree in your assessment, the lottery should not be any ones hope, its for entertainment only.  For me, its a hobby.  The only vice I have since I quit smoking.  LOL

                        Watch the documentary made about the Coffee case.  It's not false info.  That's why she won the judgement.  Not to mention that machine was malfunctioning, which they already knew.  So it brewed even hotter than what was safe.

                          Are you sure there's enough oxygen in your room?

                          You've obviously got an internet connection. If you can't find out the truth it's not because it isn't readily available.

                          As far as the psychic, that should be really easy to figure out, too.  There are thousands and thousands of psychics, and the ones who give people lucky numbers or lottery numbers do it over and over. The chances that this particular psychic would know they ever met this guy or his wife are about the same as your chances of winning PB.
