Thousands of people are rushing to snap up tickets for the Tuesday night April 16, 2002 drawing, the second-biggest lottery jackpot in U.S. history. The jackpot in the seven-state game played in Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey and Virginia climbed $25 million Monday, April 15, 2002 after strong sales over the weekend. By the time of the drawing, the prize could swell past the U.S. record of $363 million, split by two Big Game winners in 2000. (Photo by Tim Boyle/Getty Images)

An Australian woman said she has finally proven a tarot card reader wrong by scoring a lottery jackpot worth more than $70,000.

The Woy Woy, New South Wales, the woman told The Lott officials that Friday’s Lucky Lotteries Super Jackpot drawing marked the end of her belief in the words of a fortune-teller who predicted her future would be anything but lucky.

“A tarot card reader read my cards years ago and told me I would never win anything in my life,” the woman said. “Since then I have been trying my best to prove her wrong! Now I can say I have!”

The woman won the $69,940 first prize in the drawing, as well as a smaller prize of $1,398.80, bringing her total jackpot to $71,338.80. “This is the best news I have ever received. It’s so exciting,” she said.

The winner said she plans to use her winnings to help her family and travel with her partner.
