New York, April 10 (ANI): Jessica Silverman from New York has won 25,000 dollars after guessing the exact number of jellybeans in a jar - 7,954.

However, it’s not the first time she’s successfully guessed how many jellybeans are in a jar.

When she was 5, she did just that and won a stuffed toy dragon.

Silverman says she’ll use her winnings to put a down payment on a new home.

Silverman says she entered the jellybean counting contest by chance at a booth set up by insurance firm DeWitt Stern at the Hilton New York Hotel.

“I’m a lucky girl, and I was in the right place at the right time. This is going to the ‘Get Jessica a first apartment’ fund,” the New York Daily News quoted Silverman as saying. (ANI)
