Sometimes it just seems like the universe is trying to tell you something…
Rick Knudsen from Calimesa, California USA, only played the lottery when the jackpot was high and he felt lucky.
In August 2014, a series of unusual events prompted him to buy a MegaMillions lottery ticket – he must have been very happy that he listened to his intuition, as it won him $180 million!
The day before the draw, Rick went to the store. “I bought something and it was six dollars even – no change. And then, later on that morning, I bought something else and it was nine dollars even. Five different places that day and I didn’t pay any change. I’m a numbers freak and that all meant something in my head. So I said ‘I gotta stop somewhere and buy a (lottery) ticket'”. So, on his way home, he bought a MegaMillions ticket.
And it continued – over a twenty-four period, every single thing Rick purchased totalled even dollars – no change.
On the evening of the draw, Rick (who had no idea his MegaMillions ticket had already won) met his kids at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. “Everywhere I played, I won! I played on seven different machines and I won on every single one of them!”
The next morning, Rick got a phone call from his sister, who told him someone from Calimesa has won the $180 million jackpot. “I looked up the numbers and said ‘Oh my God'” said Rick.
He planned to help his church, including buying a new roof, enjoy life and also help his kids and grandkids out financially.
