$2m lotto winner to buy new glasses - ABC - 13th May 2009

A legally blind Adelaide man is celebrating his $2 million lotto win after hearing about it on the radio.

SA Lotteries says the single father from Seaford in Adelaide's southern suburbs only checked his ticket after he heard on the radio about a mystery winner of the major prize having bought the ticket from a Seaford newsagency.

"I want to financially secure my children's future and then buy myself a new pair of glasses," he told lottery officials.

Despite being legally blind, the man says he will keep working hard in the business he part owns.

"I'll keep working, but might now hire someone to help me out." (Credit: ABC)
