An Australian man who had been dealing with a string of bad luck has turned it all around and scored a big lottery win. He told lottery officials that he felt things were starting to look up for him after “a sign that someone was looking out.”
He had accidentally left a late family member’s pocket knife on top of his car and drove with it there for about 40 minutes, but when he stopped, it was still up there.
The guy took this as a sign that God was turning things around for him and he told his friends about it. A few of them suggested he buy a lottery ticket. That turned out to be good advice because he won - $634-thousand!
“It's such a good feeling,” he says. “The win won't solve all my problems, but it solves a hell of a lot.”
