A homeless man from Colorado will have a very joyous Christmas after winning $500,000 off a $10 scratch card. Enough to turn his life around.
After he went through a divorce and lost his business, Michael Engfors had a tough six years being homeless.
Now Michael hopes for a fresh start and to reconnect with his daughter whom he hasn’t seen for more than 20 years.
Michael, who is 61 years old, was staying in the Aspen Homeless Shelter, but he never lost hope that his life would change for the better. Even though buying a $10 lottery ticket was pure luck, he’s sure glad that he bought it that day.
The Eternal Splendor scratch card that Michael bought had odds of 840,000 to 1. He was a lucky man that day, and let’s hope he really makes the best out of his good fortune.
