Dec. 9 (UPI) -- A Michigan man said a trio of prophetic dreams led him to a specific scratch-off lottery ticket that earned him a $500,000 jackpot.
Jesse Fravala, 23, of Drummond Island, told Michigan Lottery officials he followed instructions from his dreams when he bought five $500,000 Wild Time scratch-off tickets from Wazz's Party Plus on Drummond Island.
"I have had three dreams where I've won $500,000 playing this game," Fravala said. "Ever since the first dream, I have been playing this game hoping the dream would come true and here I am."
Fravala said his first five tickets turned out to be duds.
"I wasn't expecting to win anything on the last one either, so when I scratched off a $500,000 I didn't believe it was real. I had tears in my eyes," he said.
The winner said he plans to buy a new vehicle and invest the rest of his winnings.
"Winning definitely feels like my dream," Fravala said.
