Indebted, unemployed and homeless, László Andraschek bought a lottery ticket on his way to a Budapest workshop for recovering alcoholics and became a millionaire.
Andraschek claimed his record $2.8 million prize several months ago, but his story was only unearthed after he recently made a significant donation to a hostel for the homeless.
