Sup Travellers?! Do you believe in luck? Well even if you believe in it or not you can't think twice when I say that 55 year old László Andraschek is a very fortunate man. Not everyone can turn from being homeless to ballin in just a matter of hours. The Guardian reports that the Hungarian man was down to his last few coins when he decided to buy a lottery ticket. 

"I had only picked six numbers and the female shop assistant reminded me that I needed to pick a seventh," he said. "I told her to make it 24—it doesn't matter, anyway." It actually did matter because that lottery ticket just happened to be the winning ticket and the one that skyrocketed his money from $0.00 to $2.8 million.

Andraschek has payed off all his debts, bought a car and dropped some cash on apartments for his three children. He is also planning a trip to Italy, but he hasn't only been spending money on himself. The 55 year old is a recovering alcoholic and is setting up foundations to help addicts like himself and victims of domestic abuse. "I have become rich, but I have not become a different person," he says.

His big win wasn't very public but the information got out when he recently made a hefty donation to a homeless shelter.

Andraschek really had faith in his last few coins. He could have spent on food or some drinks but he decided to spend it all on the lottery. The chances of him winning was slim but at the end of the day, he won and that's all that matters. What would you do if you won $2.8 million? Let me know in the comments section below. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
