Oz Lotto Player Believes his Dead Wife Set him up with a New Car

A man from Queensland, Australia, who won a Nissan Pathfinder car in the Oz Lotto 20th Birthday Draw earlier this month, believes his dead wife set him up for the win.

Rockhampton resident Allan Reinikka Rokawinner said he was leaving the newsagents when he heard a voice tell him, "Put a ticket in."

 Rokawinner thinks the voice must have been his wife Jo-Anne, who died in November 2013, because the subject of a new car had always been a topic of conversation between them.

"When I found out [about the win] I picked my jaw up off the floor, I thought it was fake," Rokawinner said.

He'd been driving about in a Toyota Corolla for about eight years and doesn't normally play the lottery.

"It was just a one-off.  I put a ticket in the jackpot draw for some strange reason because I heard a voice. So I did what I was told," he said.
