An Australian man has won the raffle of a lifetime, taking home an entire Pacific island resort for the price of a $49 ticket.

The man, identified only as Joshua from New South Wales, won the 16-room Micronesian resort in a draw organised by the Australian owners, who were looking to handover the lodge after setting it up two decades ago.

Ahead of the draw, co-owner Doug Beitz said he was hoping the winner would be “someone who likes warm weather, likes meeting new people from around the world, is adventurous”.

160727141437-win-a-resort-ticket-exlarge-169A video posted on Facebook revealed the winning number, drawn on Tuesday evening by a computer, to be ticket 44,980.

Before the draw took place, Doug had some very simple advice for lucky winner Joshua. “Your life is about to change in a very special way.”
