An incredible thing happened to this woman – she won the lottery in 1985 and 1986. The total amount was 5.4 million dollars. However, she spent all her winnings playing roulette and now she lives in a trailer.

In 2002, at the age of 19, Michael Carroll won 9.7 million dollars. And instead of investing this money into his future, Carroll spent most of it on cocaine, bought a mansion, which, yes, was an investment, but his addiction to cocaine grew bigger, and he also spent a fortune paying prostitutes and throwing one extravagant party after another. So it is not surprising that soon there was nothing left of his lottery money.

Today, Michael Carroll works in a cookie factory in Scotland. He says that he is happy, regardless of the fact that his weekly salary is only 204 pounds.

In 2012, John Ross Jr.’s life changed forever when he won two million dollars in the lottery. The winner, who was 29 years old at that time, said that he would first buy a car. However, only a few months later he was arrested for helping one woman to steal, hide and repair a Honda Civic car.

This girl was once the happiest teenager on the planet. She won 1.9 million euro when she was 16 years old. At that time, this amount was about 3 million dollars. So, you think she invested in real estate and became a business lady? No, she spent almost everything on shopping, parties and breast augmentation. 10 years pass by, she has a little over $3,000 on her bank account, training to be a nurse and has 3 children.

It is quite predictable that the winners of lotteries, first of all, buy cars and new houses. But, instead of a small cozy house, most people are buying mansions. Here is an excellent example of an inappropriate waste: in 1997, Billy Bob Harrell won $ 31,000,000 in Lotto Texas and bought six huge houses at once. Soon the situation got out of control: it was way too expensive to maintain the real estate, and the rest of the money he spent on taxes and utilities.

Jane Park, from Edinburg, became the youngest lottery winner in British history, winning a million pounds (about $ 1.3 million) in Euromillions at the age of 17. But the money (which she partially spent on breast augmentation surgery, as well as on the butt lift) did not bring her personal happiness.

Now, according to the Daily Mail, 23-year-old Jane decided to find a boyfriend by creating a special website, where she will receive applications from candidates. The winner will be paid 70 thousand dollars a year to date her.

How do you think you’d spend the lottery money?
