Michael Carroll, 27, became extremely rich 8 years ago when he took home the jackpot in a big lottery. Michael was at that time 19-years-old and living in small town in England. He had a quite bad reputation at that time because of his criminal past, and it didn't take long before he got the nickname "Lotto Lour" by the press. Anyhow, as a multi-millionaire Michael quit his daytime job and started to spend his fortune on bad investments and lots of drugs. Back in 2006, he ended up in yale for 9 months because of a fight he got into. Today, he's a father of two, but the money is all gone and now he's selling his house and also aiming to get back his old job as a dustman.
So how could everything go so wrong for him? There are probably many, many reasons. Anyhow, this is what Michael Carroll said in an interview with BBC.
"If you give £9.7 million to a 19-year-old, what do you think is going to happen?"
