BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (KABC) — A homeless man in Illinois is paying it forward after winning the lottery.

Dennis is 59 years old. He spent the past 30 years homeless, often living outside in a tent.

Recently, someone gave him a $1 instant scratch-off ticket and it changed his life. The ticket was a $50,000 winner and Dennis is spreading the wealth.

“I scratched it off right here in my tent,” says Dennis Mahurin, who has been homeless since 1978. “I thought it was a thousand dollars. She said, ‘Nope.’ I said, ‘Oh, I messed up didn’t?’ She said it was fifty thousand, and I almost fell over.”

Even after purchasing a $50,000 scratch-off ticket from a near-by gas station last week, he says he will keep living his familiar lifestyle.

“He’s a very, very nice guy. He’s one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met,” says Emmarie Cross, who works at the Circle K where the ticket was purchased. “I’ve been telling everybody, this couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.”
