A man in Manawatu found to his delight that he had become doubly fortunate after a spell of sickness and worry.
Undergoing treatment for cancer for some time, he was told that a medical check-up had revealed the cancer was in remission. A lottery ticket seemed to be a good way to celebrate this good news although he did not immediately scratch the Instant Kiwi ticket. When he did, he found that he had won the jackpot - $100,000.
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, wants to put the past six months of anxiety behind him, buy a motorbike and celebrate his good fortune with his family and friends.
