Homeless Hungarian László Andraschek only had a few coins to spend when he decided to buy a lottery ticket.
In fact, the entire thing was a complete lark. He says:
"I had only picked six numbers and the female shop assistant reminded me that I needed to pick a seventh. I told her to make it 24 – it doesn’t matter anyway."
That turned out to be the best decision he ever made, because that seventh number won him 630 MILLION forint, Hungary's biggest jackpot of all time!
