How fast can a 19-year-old blow through ten million pounds?

Michael Caroll is one English lottery winner who needed just four years to get back to a backbreaking job. The self-proclaimed “King of Chavs” went on a spending spree that ended only when his greedy hands reached the bottom of the sack.

Caroll won the jackpot in 2002 and immediately became the spoiled kid of tabloid media. Besides giving a part of the money to family, this bloke thrashed his luck by indulging in drugs, sports cars, and other stuff simple folks can only dream.

2010 was the year when Caroll officially declared bankruptcy. Last time we checked, he was happy packing biscuits and earning the minimum wage. His incredible journey proved once more that “easy come easy go” is not just an expression.

Below is a sample of the rockstar life Michael Caroll flaunted after winning the lottery.
