A 37-year-old man from Denmark, who had been living on the streets for 6 months, has bagged 3.6 million Danish kroner ($605,000) with a scratch-off ticket he purchased from a supermarket in Korsor.
Speaking of his rags to riches experience, the jubilant winner told lottery staff: "It is really weird and I can't believe it, but I went to the bank and they confirmed it. It is very strange, but it is a lovely experience."
The winner will receive around $10,000 each month for the next 60 months. He has opted to remain anonymous.
