Homeless man winning lottery ticket

The generosity of the self-proclaimed magician prankster brought a homeless man to tears after he was given a winning lottery ticket.


ST. LOUIS, MO (PIX11/KTVI) – A self proclaimed “magician prankster” caught something amazing on video. A man with nothing breaks down after he catches a break. He tries to share his good fortune by sharing.

Millions more watch Rahat the magician’s YouTube videos. He has gained internet fame through a series of drive-thru pranks. He is once again getting national attention after he gave a homeless man a “winning” lottery ticket.

In the video, posted on KTVI’s website, Rahat said he recently noticed the homeless man near a shopping center he lives near. “I’m going to give him this supposed lottery ticket, take him to the store and see how much money is won from this ticket. But little does he know, this is a losing lottery ticket. And the store clerk is in on it,” Rahat said in the video.

Once inside the convenience store, the homeless man handed the ticket to the clerk. “Oh my gosh. Guess what? You won $1,000 dollars,” the clerk said.

“You’re kidding me right? You’re kidding me right?” the homeless man said.

    I am boooo hoooo crying right now!!!! I pray for the courage to be that generous and free hearted as BOTH of these men one day=) By nature we are all so selfish…I don't think I know anyone with the type of generosity that both these men extended. People say they are BUT when it's time to put actions to thoughts most fail. Made my day=)

    Since the tropical country hold many beautiful plant
    life and wildlife, fruits, vegetables, plants, cutting, seeds and unprocessed products are considered restricted items in order to protect the
    ecology. While drinking too much coffee may give you
    a typing speed of more than sixty words per minute, some would believe that a morning without coffee is like sleep.
    While you are presenting the summary, watch the reactions of the audience closely.
