Pray To Gods- Wiccan Wins

NOTTINGHAM, Maryland (AP) — Elwood “Bunky” Bartlett says a New Age book store made it possible for him to become an overnight multimillionaire.

He and his wife, Denise, were on their way to the shop where he occasionally teaches Wicca and Reiki healing when they stopped at a liquor store and bought two $5 Mega Millions tickets for Friday night’s estimated $330 million jackpot.

On Sunday, he said one of his tickets was a winner.

“If it wasn’t for this place I wouldn’t have won the lottery,” Bartlett said Sunday at Mystickal Voyage, the New Age shop.

Four winning tickets to the Mega Millions jackpot were sold in Maryland, New Jersey, Texas and Virginia. Lottery officials said Sunday they cannot confirm the validity of Bartlett’s ticket before they meet with him on Tuesday.

“There’s no reason to believe it’s not legitimate, but it has to go through security,” said Maryland State Lottery Director Buddy Roogow, who said he has spoken with Bartlett.

Bartlett, an accountant from Dundalk, said he made a bargain with the multiple gods associated with his Wiccan beliefs: “You let me win the lottery and I’ll teach.” Both tickets he purchased had numbers chosen randomly from the computer.

Elwood? His name is Elwood. Where is Jake? It is time to get the band back together again. With this kind of cash they can take care of the penguin and pay for some great attorneys to take care of that little high speed chase they engaged in.

    I have heard those stories. Maybe he was cursed, just like Hurley on Lost.

    Ah, Jake and Elwood. Those white boys could dance!
    Have you heard that lottery winners usually do ridiculous things and somehow manage to lose their millions, along with all their friends, in a few years? Could be the multiple gods cursed him.
