Season 3 - Episode 12

DESCRIPTION:

Millions of people worldwide hand over money every week to be in with a chance of winning the lottery. The odds aren't stacked in your favour, but you pay anyway. 

Maybe for a minute, your mind drifts to a place where you’ve won. You imagine what you would do with your millions, what you would buy,  family and friends you would treat, how much your life would be improved.

Teenage lottery winner Michael Carroll’s fall was almost as fast as his rise after he won ten million pounds. His life spiralled into utter chaos, drugs, violence and murder within his family.
