Carolyn O'Brien is CT Lottery's Newest Millionaire!
Psychic’s Prediction Comes True for CT Lottery’s Newest Millionaire
May 09, 2017 -- Years ago, Carolyn O’Brien saw a psychic to have her fortune read. A bit skeptical at first, O’Brien didn’t know what to think of the fortune telling. The New Milford resident was almost out the door when the psychic suddenly grabbed her arm, asking her to wait. “She grabbed my arm and said, ‘I see you with a check in your hand cheering ‘I did it!’

Eerily enough, the prediction was correct as O’Brien won the $3,000,000 prize on a “$3,000,000 Royale” instant ticket! “Everything she told me has come true,” said the newly crowned millionaire. O’Brien decided to take the lump sum option.

O’Brien and her husband Reid, were driving to see their son at school. “I played it in the car and started screaming and dancing! We pulled the car over cheering and I started sobbing like a baby,” laughed O’Brien.

The emotional celebration didn’t stop there as O’Brien danced her way to CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill to claim her prize. “I danced this morning before I came [to the Lottery].” The lucky winner told Lottery officials that she felt like a rock star.

A relieved O’Brien said, “The pressure is off. We’re going to pay off our kids’ college tuitions, the mortgage and invest! You don’t make this stuff up!” With less to stress about, O’Brien is ecstatic to spend more time with her dog, named Shea. “I’ve only had one ‘mani-pedi’ in my life—now Shea and I are going!”

As O’Brien was leaving CT Lottery headquarters, she threw on her sunglasses with her check in hand. She smiled and shouted, “BEST DAY EVER—I DID IT!”

For selling the winning ticket, AARI Foods Inc. located on 210 New Milford Turnpike in New Preston will receive a $30,000 check from the CT Lottery.
