Homeless Man in Hungary Wins $2.8 Million in Lottery

A former homeless man is now one of his country’s biggest lottery winners.

László Andraschek, of Hungary, was on his way to a workshop for recovering alcoholics back in September, when he decided to spend his last coins on a lottery ticket, the Guardian reports. Expecting the same bad luck and disappointment that had befallen him his whole life, he was shocked to discover he won the equivalent of about $2.8 million.

The 55-year-old has decided to use his good fortune responsibly — and for a good cause, the outlet notes. In fact, Andraschek’s big win went unnoticed until he made a big donation to a hostel for the homeless in February.

His first act after the win was to pay off his debts to family members, after which he bought flats for his three children to live in and a car to share.

As well as donating a significant sum to a homeless charity – in a country where politicians face protests after attempting to ban sleeping rough – Mr Andraschek says he wants to use the money to set up a foundation for addicts and women who have been abused.
