The lottery is played by people dreaming of a dramatic financial turn-around. Some players even have some sort of premonition before they finally land the big one. A man from Dublin may have experienced the biggest reversal of fortune after following a hunch to buy another instant ticket.
The father of four had been in dire straits recently and had almost sold his house a few months ago. Then lady luck paid a visit, not once but twice. A week ago the man, who requested to remain anonymous, won €1,000 on a scratch card. Feeling that he was indeed lucky, the man bought another €20 All Cash Extravaganza game instant ticket, which landed him a €500000 prize.
Now the man is all set to pay off his mortgage and credit card debts. And his wife is planning a long overdue vacation.
