Miracles come in the most unexpected and wholesome ways, and when they do, an uneventful day can become the most memorable day of one's life. The profound meaning of miracles will always resonate with Jordan Ross and Jayde Hicks, a couple from Perth who found fortune after hitting an unexpected jackpot for a token of $20 on May 26, 2017.
Ross and Hicks were a young couple who managed to get by daily with menial jobs. At one point, life's challenges were so tough that Ross was homeless for about five years. It was so challenging that all he had to his name was a skateboard. Hicks also struggled to survive, although she and Ross looked forward to sealing their love in marriage.

This was not the first time they tried their luck at a lottery shop, but it was the first time something amazing happened. According to Yahoo, Hicks did not hold back the rush of joy when she described her feelings:
