A homeless man from Colorado won a massive $500,000 on a $10 scratch card, and is now looking to turn his life around.

Unilad has the story…

Michael Engfors had been sleeping rough for six years after going through a rough divorce and losing his business.

He now wants to make a fresh start, and Michael hopes to reconnect with his daughter who he hasn’t seen for over 20 years.

The 61-year-old was staying at the Aspen Homeless Shelter in Colorado. Jeremy Kowalis, a worker at the shelter, told 9News



Michael has seen a bottom that has pushed him right to the edge, but he never gave up. He knew that if he kept pushing on, eventually his luck would change.

I don’t think he normally spends $10 a day on a lottery ticket. But he did that day, and it sure paid off. It couldn’t have happened to a better person.

Michael bought a Eternal Splendor scratch card, with odds of 840,000 to 1.

What a great story, and we wish Michael all the best on getting his life back on track!
