Psychic predicts jackpot lottery numbers

Next time you or someone you know goes to a psychic and you make fun of the reading, think again. Because a tarot card reader in Winnipeg, Canada gave Judy Mayer, 56, the winning lottery numbers.

Well almost. The numbers the psychic gave Mayer in a 2005 reading were 5, 6, 17, 21, 31 and 45 but she changed the 45 to 46 for some unknown reason, netting her a cool $6,815,813.

"She didn't tell me I was going to win a substantial amount of money. Sometimes they hit on the right things, sometimes they don't," Mayer said after claiming her winnings.

Interestingly enough, Mayer was the 100th person to win Manitoba’s lottery jackpot of $1 million or more. Unsurprisingly, she has taken a leave of absence from her job as the manager of The Royal George Hotel in Transcona.

"Nobody wants to tip me anymore," she quipped.

Mayer and her husband, Dave Chalmers, 62, a retired Winnipeg police officer, said they would use the money to make improvements to their home and repair their car, but declared they would not be frivolous with the win. However, family and friends may soon see to that.

"Oh, the phone never quits," laughed Mayer.

"That's relatives, you know."
