A man down on his luck wins $250,000 on scratch-off lottery ticket while on live TV (Video)

27 3

This man had an accident at work, had a heart condition, and nearly died. However, he turned his bad fortune around, got engaged, a new job, a new car, then won money on a scratch-off ticket…then won another scratch-off ticket live on camera during what was supposed to be a reenactment.

Sorry for the annoying sound at the start of the video.

      If I wanted to get on a site with a crappy format and get redirected to different websites I would go the reddit. TheChive is nice and clean and it's all on their site.

        Actually helpful. The YT vid (actually a different one) told you that his first round of good luck was the car. I had no idea until.

    Am I the only one who was sweating it a bit after hearing "Heart problem" then watching his reaction? I have a heart problem, too, and I was waiting for him to hit the floor. Good on you, mate.

    I tried to watch this but I couldn't hear the video because I accidentally scrolled over a video ad with no fucking mute button.

    there needs to be a grumpy cat meme for this.

  • Bru

    This happened in the late 1990's. used to work with this guy. Good bloke. Funny thing, when he bought the ticket, a lady had pushed in front of him and bought a ticket before him. He is good natured, but still let her know bad manners get you fuck all

    • Uh Huh

      Yeah…I'm sure that's exactly what happened! Just so happened to be around to post that comment too.
