Mickey Carol (Mickey Carroll) bought the lucky ticket for one pound in 2002, when he was 19 years old. Then he lived in the English County of Norfolk and worked as a garbage man. His wife was seven months pregnant.
As soon as Carol found out about the win, he gave a million pounds ($82.2 million rubles at the current exchange rate) to his mother, another million — uncle and aunt, who helped raise him after his father’s death. The man started spending a lot of money on entertainment, booze, drugs and prostitutes. The day he drank at least two bottles of vodka.
