Old Lyme Woman Credits ‘Law of Attraction’ for $50,000 Powerball® Win
Reilly Silvia of Old Lyme believes in positive thinking. “I’m going to win the lottery, we’re going to earn it,” she kept telling herself. Silvia’s winning experience hit a high point as she cashed $50,000 on a Powerball
win! She attributes her good fortune to the Law of Attraction, which states that positive thoughts bring positive experiences.
Her winning numbers drawn on July 23, 2016 were ---- 5 – 7 – 23 – 35 – 39 – Powerball: 11. Silvia matched four numbers and the Powerball number.
Silvia went to the nearest Ticket Checker to confirm her numbers. “It said ‘Congratulations!’ Go to CT Lottery.’ I thought I was on a hidden camera show! I checked it again—thought it wasn’t real.’” Silvia was searching for cameras as the reality sunk in.
“I’m super grateful—it feels surreal,” Silvia said glowingly. The happy winner also told Lottery officials that she will donate some of her winnings to charity.
To add coincidence, Silvia turned 50-years-old days before she played the Powerball ticket and claimed her $50,000 prize on her partner’s birthday!
Silvia’s winning ticket was sold at East Hartford Liquors located on 8 Brewer Street in East Hartford.
