Fortune Predicted by Tarot Card Reader

A woman who won a £1,633,505 jackpot in the National Lottery draw on Saturday 16 June has revealed how her good fortune was predicted by a tarot card reader - years before the event itself took place.
Janette Wright works as a housing officer and her husband Stephen is a painter and decorator. They have four children and - until the recent win - have lived a normal and quiet life in Bradford. But fortune was always on the cards, as Janette explained:
"I had a tarot card reading about seven or eight years ago and the tarot reader told me one day I would win 'a substantial amount of money which will be shared'," Janette said. "At the time you think 'yes that would be great'. You never really think it would happen to you so you can imagine how surprised and delighted I was when I checked the numbers on Teletext on Saturday night. "
The numbers that Janette won with were the result of a "Lucky Dip" selection which really did live up to its name. The family are now letting the fact that they have become millionaires sink in, whilst at the same time beginning to think about how they might spend some of their lottery wealth.
"We will probably buy ourselves a new car but it is still early days," Janette said. "Two of our children are doing their exams at the moment. It is an important time for them so we won't be moving home."
In addition to the new car, Janette's husband Stephen is looking forward to calling time on his career as a painter and decorator. "I'll be hanging up my paint brush but I'm sure Janette will have one or two jobs for me to do around the house," Stephen said. "I can't believe we have won. It's only just beginning to sink in now."
