“You know what, my son had a dream a few years ago. He woke up one morning and said, ‘I had dream about you. You won $15 million’.

“So it was predicted, but he just got the figure wrong.
“This is amazing. I’m still living in the land of I don’t believe it!
“I’m really, really excited. Confused, excited, everything!

“I normally play a four-game entry using family birthdates, and the whole family will benefit from this prize,” she said.
