Edna Aguayo never stopped believing that the psychic would turn out to be right, purchasing tickets twice a week. Amazingly, Aguayo recalled the psychic saying she would win a "for-life" prize and now she's set to receive a $1,000 a day for life.

After taxes, Aguayo will now enjoy $227,000 a year!

Here's more from The New York Post:

Edna Aguayo, who won $1,000 a day for the rest of her life through New York Lottery’s Cash4Life game, said a psychic told her long ago she’d hit it big one day.

“I knew I’d win one day, I just didn’t know when,” said the 20-year police officer, who retired three years ago. “I was in an amusement park and went to see a reader. She told me to buy ‘for life’ lottery tickets because she could see that one day I was going to hit a ‘for life’ prize.”

Aguayo, of Queens, purchased the winning ticket at Waldbaum’s supermarket on Cross Bay Boulevard in Howard Beach and matched all six numbers — 9-19-34-37-49 and Cash Ball 2 — in the July 14 drawing.


Aguayo, who purchases Cash4Life tickets every Monday and Thursday, will rake in $227,410 a year after taxes.
