    Lottery winner back on the dole after blowing 9.6 m

    'Lotto lout' Michael Carroll back on the dole after squandering his 9.7m on drugs and prostitutes

    Lotto winner Michael Carroll is relying on Jobseeker's allowance after spending his 9.7million in eight years

    He is the Lotto Lout who turned up to collect his 9.7million win wearing an electronic offender's tag.
    But eight years on, Michael Carroll, the self-styled King of Chavs, is back to where he started - on the dole.
    The 26-year-old former dustbin man yesterday revealed he has squandered his multi-million fortune on drugs, gambling and thousands of prostitutes.
    But he insisted he is just as happy getting 42 a week in jobseeker's allowance.
    He said: 'The party has ended and it's back to reality. I haven't got two pennies to rub together and that's the way I like it. I find it easier to live off 42 dole than a million.

    'It's a bit strange going on the dole again because that's what I was doing before I won.


    More...


    'I've lived the high life but I want my job back and to earn a normal wage. I'll do anything to earn a pound or two now.'

    Carroll's jackpot win in 2002 disappeared with astonishing speed as the tattooed self-styled 'King of the Chavs' lavished several million pounds on family and friends and hundreds of thousands on drugs.

    By the end of 2003, he was smoking 2,000 of crack cocaine every day and hosting drug and drink fuelled parties at his 325,000 home, the notorious Grange in Downham, Norfolk.

    Angry at his life of excess, his wife Sandra left him and took their baby daughter Brooke with her.

    Rather than see the decision as a wake-up call, Carroll continued on his life of excess, turning to prostitutes.

    He boasted about sleeping with four a day - a total of 2,000 at a cost of 100,000 over eight years - in order to sate his sexual appetite.

    Carroll told the News of the World: 'I could go for days without sleeping because of the drugs - so I would just spend night and day s****ing with all these hookers.'


    Carroll picked up his Lotto cheque wearing an electronic offender's tag

    Describing how he descended into a world of drugs and paying for sex, he continued: 'I only started to think about three things - drugs, sex and gold.

    'The dealer who introduced me to crack has more of my lotto money than I do.

    'He handed me my first bag of the stuff for free then he hiked up the price every time he came back. He knew what he was doing - but it blew my mind.'

    He also spent a small fortune on his trademark chunky gold jewellery and a fleet of cars, including a black Mercedes van emblazoned with the phrase 'King of Chavs'.

    Carroll said: I would buy these huge necklaces. One cost me around 2,000. All of it was robbed in 2004. There was about 100,000 worth of gold stolen. But the next day I went out and bought it all again.'

    Repairs to properties he has wrecked with raucous parties have also cost him thousands and he reportedly lost an estimated 80,000 on a property deal in Dubai after the market fell.

    Carroll also lost 1million on the dogs and horses and even injected 1million into his favourite football team, Rangers.

    Carroll was down to his last 500,000 cash in 2008 and last year sold his 400,000 fleet of luxury cars and spent the proceeds.

    He said he had no regrets about his lost fortune, but admitted that others had benefited from the win more than he had.

    'I'm just glad it's over. There were also vultures everywhere after my cash. I started to see what people were really like.'

    Carroll became notorious for his yobbish behaviour and answering any criticism with a one-fingered salute.

    He arrived to collect his winnings wearing an electronic offender's tag, fitted after he was found drunk and disorderly and has appeared before the courts dozens of times for anti- social behaviour.

    In 2004, Carroll was jailed for five months after failing to comply with a drug treatment order, imposed as part of a sentence for cocaine possession.

    He was also handed an Asbo by magistrates in King's Lynn, Norfolk, for catapulting ball bearings at cars and windows from his Mercedes, causing thousands of pounds of damage.

    Under its terms, he was not allowed to threaten, harass or intimidate anyone in the borough of West Norfolk, an area covering about 400 square miles.

    The order also prevented him from threatening or attempting to cause criminal damage in the same area.

    In 2008, thugs killed 12 of his dogs and ran him out of his lavish Downham, Norfolk, home and he has never returned.

    Instead it stands vandalised and derelict with his pool filled with rubbish.

    Carroll now lives in his other smaller home.

    What Carroll says he spent his winnings on:

    5million family and friends
    1million gambling
    1million Rangers Football Club
    800,000 televisions, sound systems and gadgets
    400,000 cars
    325,000 house
    300,000 parties
    230,000 crack cocaine
    200,000 jewellery
    200,000 swimming pool
    100,000 prostitutes
    60,000 holidays
    55,000 legal fees

    No, can't see any wastage there.

    Had he done it and put 10,000 miles between him and his "family and friends" he would probably still be enjoying his drugs and prostitutes

    'Lotto Lout' Urges 56m Winners To Leave UK

    The so-called 'Lotto lout' who blew his 9.7m fortune says the British couple who recently won a record 56m on the Euromillions should leave the country.

    Michael Carroll, 26, told Sky News Online that Nigel Page and partner Justine Laycock should be wary of "maggots and leeches that come out of the woodwork".

    He had a message for the pair: "Don't trust anyone. Flee England."

    But, speaking at a news conference after their jackpot win, the lucky couple, who live near Cirencester, Gloucestershire, pledged to look after their friends and family.

    Former dustman Mr Carroll is now on the dole after getting through his multi-million pound fortune in about eight years on drugs and a party lifestyle.

    He told Sky that if he could start again, he "wouldn't have hit the drugs so hard".
    He said: "It ripped my insides", adding drugs "ruin people". But he also said winning the lottery was a "good laugh".

    Self-styled 'King of Chavs' Mr Carroll also said he was pleased that the money was gone, saying "I'm happy and feel 100% better" as people treat him more genuinely now.

    His biographer Sean Boru told Sky: "Women used to hit on him and try to get him to buy dresses and jewellery for them.

    "Blokes were trying to hit him and he became a virtual prisoner. Now people don't give him a second look."

    Meanwhile, Mr Carroll has also put his wrecked mansion up for sale and has made an of the property to promote it.

    In the footage, the six-bedroom property, in Swaffham, Norfolk, is a shadow of its former self - with carpets and curtains removed, dark water in the pool, blood stains apparently on the walls and dog urine on the floor, it is claimed.

    Mr Carroll, who was aged 19 when he won the lottery in 2002, has not lived in the mansion for some time and left it derelict, only for squatters to move in.

    He bought the property in 2002 for 325,000 but is asking 250,000 for it now.
    He has spent around 360,000 on improvements, including an extension with a swimming pool, meaning he stands to make a loss of 435,000.

    However, there have already been three offers including one for 275,000 and Mr Carroll is hopeful of a bidding war.

    With the money from the sale of the house, Mr Carroll, who currently lives with a friend in Spalding, Lincolnshire, is hoping to start his own business but he is not sure in what area yet.

    Mr Carroll could also return to his former job as a binman and wants to do more acting after starring in two films.

    "The more I can get into the better," he said, adding he was looking at "decent parts".

    And you can bet your bottom dollar that is the first question the Social will ask him when he goes to sign on...

    Anyway, why should we pick up the tab for this bum. He has had his chance in life delivered to him on a plate - if he chooses to fvck all his money off then he is simply author of his own misfortune. I don't see why my taxes should pay for his upkeep.
