A retired Queens police officer is financially secure for life—and she had a little spiritual help.

Edna Aguayo, who protected the city for 20 years, became the first person to claim the jackpot prize of New York Lottery’s new game Cash 4 Life, which has a payout of $1,000 a day for life. She collected a symbolic big check on Thursday with a few friends by her side.

Aguayo knew she needed to buy a ticket for the Cash 4 Life game because a psychic at an amusement park told her to buy a “for life” lottery ticket sixteen years ago. Aguayo was still a little shocked though when she learned she had won the top prize.

“I thought I would win the second prize,” she said. “I didn’t think I was ever going to win the top prize.”

Aguayo purchased the ticket at Walbaum’s on Cross Bay Boulevard in Howard Beach for $2, and matched the winning numbers: 9, 19, 34, 37, 49 and Cash Ball 2. For now Aguayo is still debating what her first purchase will be, and how to spend or save the money.

The first Cash 4 Life jackpot winning ticket was purchased in a Bayside 7-Eleven on Bell Boulevard and 41st Street and verified on June 23, but the winner has yet to claim their prize. The winner has until June 23, 2015 to claim their prize of $1,000 a day for life. The winning numbers were 5, 16, 21, 33, 47 and Cash Ball 4.
