In the UK the lottery winner spent millions of pounds, were left without homes and the machines and forced to make a life of heavy physical labor. This publication reports The Sun.
In 2002, 19-year-old Michael Carroll (Michael Carroll) won the lottery 9.7 million pounds (1.3 billion rubles taking into account inflation). After receiving the money, the young man began to run rampant. He boasted that spends 10 thousand pounds a day, patrolling the streets on “Mercedes” with the inscription “King of the pals” (King of Chavs) and threw in passers-by of big Macs and chicken nuggets. By 2012, his wealth is nothing left.
“My millions disappeared in just ten years, admits Carroll. — I have no house, no car that I could call my own. But I do not regret, easy to get, and easily lost.” According to him, he became much happier when he started to work again.
Now, the former millionaire lives in Scotland and works 12 hours a day. “Hauling 50-pound bags with coal and the ruble logs, which they sell at the pump,” he says. According to him, six o’clock in the morning until six o’clock in the evening, he manages to deliver 150 bags of coal. “Sometimes I give a few pounds of tea, that’s pretty funny,” says Carroll.
In 2018, it was reported that the former postman from the UK, getting rich by winning the lottery, tortured loneliness. He decided to sell a luxurious mansion, to go to Australia and start a new life.
