Nov. 30 (UPI) -- A Maryland man said a dream that told him he would "win big" proved prophetic when he scored a $1 million lottery jackpot.
The 52-year-old Montgomery County man told Maryland Lottery officials he had a dream where he saw a lucky symbol and woke with the feeling he was going to "win big," so he decided to visit the Crescent Convenience store in Bethesda.
The Gaithersburg man picked out a Max A Million scratch-off ticket and went home to discover he couldn't interpret the results.
The player returned to the store, where a clerk confirmed it was a $1 million winner.
"I cannot believe it," the man said. "I am getting happy, happy, happy!"
The winner said he plans to pay off his son's college tuition and put the rest into savings.
