$3M lottery winner says psychic predicted the good fortune

If a psychic has ever told you that you're destined to be a big lottery winner, you may want to get yourself a ticket immediately.

Some time ago, a fortune teller told Carolyn O'Brien, "I see you with a check in your hand cheering 'I did it!'"

Earlier this month, O'Brien claimed a $3 million Connecticut Lottery prize. She won the hefty sum off an instant ticket game called '$3,000,000 Royale.'

O'Brien said of the windfall, "The pressure is off. We're going to pay off our kids' college tuitions, the mortgage and invest!"

She also intends to spend more quality time with her dog Shea. O'Brien revealed, "I've only had one 'mani-pedi' in my life—now Shea and I are going!"
