Man buys winning lotto ticket inspired by dream


A man who says he won the lottery in his dreams actually did it in waking life when he bought a scratch-off the next day.

James Woolbert, 52, of Delaware bought the $250,000 CASH Instant Game ticket at Black Bay Tobacco in Sussex County and scratched to win $10,000. He says the dream served as inspiration.

"I scratched it in the store and was stunned when I realized I won," Woolbert said.

Woolbert says he plans to use the winnings to "pay off Christmas and save the rest."
