An ancient Mongolian biker with an extensive criminal history has provoked her critics after winning $ 2.2 million in the Lotto.
Jamie Brown, a reformed biker and a wanted man whose background sheet includes a series of charges including assault and weapons possession, won the jackpot in Saturday's draw.
The Brown family flaunted their good fortune with a photo uploaded to social networks in front of the Adelaide kiosk where the ticket was purchased.
"I could not be happier," the message read, according to 7 News. & # 39; People with hate are going to hate. & # 39;

Brown was the first bikie to receive a court order prohibiting him from associating with friends within the Mongols club, being a member totally patched at that time.
In 2016, her home received media attention amid rumors that she was transforming Adelaide's extensive property into a "bikie fortress".
According to reports, his family ruled out the rumors and said that Brown was no longer a bikie and that she was focusing on her business and raising a young family.
The winning ticket from Brown's Lotto had been a Father's Day gift, purchased at Campbell's Newsagency in Morphett Vale in South Adelaide.

The locals had mixed opinions about the former bikie winning the jackpot.
One person said that criminals should not be eligible to win.
Maybe he'll donate it to charity. Wait, I'm dreaming, right? added another.
"You can buy a new bike and yell at the gang some new companies," said another person.
But social media users overwhelmingly criticized Brown's critics, claiming that he had changed and did not deserve negative attention.
& # 39; Does a person's past really matter? He bought a ticket and he won it just and square. Well done for you and your family, "wrote one man.
& # 39; Good for him. Your family will be ready for life. Just because it's a bicycle, does not make it a bad person, "added another.
Brown is one of nine winners of Saturday's draw. He will pocket more than $ 2.2 million
Brown's couple said they had purchased the tickets on Father's Day.
"I bought the tickets for my dad and my husband for Father's Day while we went out with my mom," he told SA Lotteries officials.
"I was at home about to prepare dinner when my mother sent me a text message to ask if I had checked my ticket because she had seen on the news that someone had won but they had not yet shown up."
The money will go to the future of Brown's children, pay at home and buy a new car, said a spokesman for Lotto.
There were nine winning entries from division one in Australia in the draw on Saturday, September 1st. Each entry won a prize of division one of $ 2,222,222
