Waiter predicts £1M lottery win in a dream

A restaurant owner is being forced to share his winnings with a waiter who predicted that he would win.
Waiter Fatih Ozcan who works at the Kapadokya Turkish restaurant in York claims that he had a precognitive dream the night before a EuroMillions lottery draw in January 2012 suggesting that he and his boss, Hayati Kucukkoylu, would win a large cash prize.

Amazingly his prediction came to pass, with Kucukkoylu scooping a whopping £1M after buying a ticket based on Ozcan's advice.

Afterwards however Ozcan insisted that he be entitled to half the winnings because it was only through his precognitive experience that his boss had even bought a ticket at all. The matter eventually went to court where a judge ordered that the prize money be evenly split between them.

"He dreamt that he was holding a large bundle of cash and standing in front of him was his boss," said Judge Mark Gosnell. "Mr Ozcan is a strong believer in the power of dreams and interpreted this to mean that he and Mr Kucukkoylu would win the lottery."

In the end it was decided that the two men had entered in to an agreement to buy the ticket together, hence why both Ozcan and his boss were entitled to a share of the prize.

A Turkish judge, after listening to the info. It must have been fairly good info to make him choose the decision he chose. It would be the far easier route to throw the case out due to there not being a way of knowing the real situation. My guess is that the winner didn't deny having the conversation, and that the 2 sides weren't at each others throats over the trial. People are so quick to jump to assuming that people are all greedy liars, and that having dreams of things that would happen soon after are fairy tales.

From what I understand the waiter didn't pay half of the lottery ticket, if he did he sure is entitled to half. But I assume that he thought he would get half just by telling his boss about the dream, but sure seems strange if the question about his share of the payment for the ticket didn't even come up at the time.

So if I tell someone each week that I saw them win the lotto in a dream, when they eventually win I can site this case and say I deserve half the money. Brilliant (I wonder how often the waiter told his boss he would win )

All you'd win is legal costs and a lesson.

If the boss admitted the only reason he purchased the ticket was because the guy told him to buy one due to his dream and also admitted he agreed he would split any winnings, then yeah he should have to give up half. Anything short of that, I can't see how a judge could rule in the plaintiff's favor.

Thats cool. Its amazing how people can have dreams that predict the future; you have to wonder if humans have an ability to sense things before they can happen...
