An Australian man’s mistakes paid off when he accidentally bought two lottery tickets with the same numbers. 

The result was a $33.2 million jackpot win.

The man told lottery officials he thought he was buying one of the tickets for a future drawing but later found he’d accidentally bought both tickets for Tuesday’s drawing. 

The $50 million total jackpot winnings were split among three winning tickets, of which the man held two.

"I might think about retiring. First maybe a new home or a holiday," he said.

"I'll definitely share it with my family."
