A dream come true: Numbers for Lotto 6-49 winner came while he was sleeping

Winning 6-49 lotto numbers came in a dream

WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg woman and her son are millionaires because of a dream.

Bahadur Sultani and his mother won $5.3 million in the Lotto 6-49 draw on Dec. 28.

Sultani says his sister, who died years ago, told him four of the six numbers in a dream.

When he explained to his mother what had happened, she suggested he play the lottery and gave him the last two numbers.

Sultani bought the ticket while working as a truck driver in Red Deer, Alta.

The amount of the jackpot shocked the winners, who plan to donate some of the money to help those in need.

“I checked the ticket on my way back to Winnipeg,” he said as he picked up the cheque this week with mother Aghdas Mehdizadeh. â€œAt first I thought it said $5,000. Then, I looked again and thought it must be $50,000, or maybe half a million dollars.”

Sultani said he plans to use the money to buy the perfect “monster truck” but also to “make my mom happy.”
