Carroll famously won the fortune in 2002 at the age of simply 19, and blew nearly all his money on drugs, alcohol and hookers, to the point that he became virtually penniless and lived down benefits.

He now claims that he’s turned more than a new leaf after fleeing north to Scotland upon being warned by buddies that his current lifestyle would be their death knell.
‘ I’ve only got one chance left I’d have been dead in six months if I’d carried on that lifestyle of drug and drinking taking. I get £204 every week for packing and stacking shortbread and snacks and I like it,’ exclaimed Carroll in the Daily Mail UK tabloid newspaper, stating that he’s no regrets over the past ten years, despite finding yourself in jail on three occasions and wittering away his fortune.

Last year’s $18 million + winner, Antonio Esfandiari, only took fourth this year, and with a buy-in that was almost 1/10th of this past year’s $1 million, he made off by having a ‘paltry’ $1,433,438 for in 2010’s fourth place finish.
