    A pair of socks - and a benevolent purchase - have won an Auckland man a million dollars

    A pair of socks - and a benevolent purchase - have won an Auckland man a million dollars


    The man was returning a wrong-sized pair of socks bought online.

    While out, he bought his weekly ticket at Mt Wellington's Harris Road Post Shop Lotto counter - to support the local business.

    He says he will always associate his win now with his lucky pair of socks.
