12 Lottery Winners You Can’t Help But Feel Sorry For

12. Suzanne Mullins

In 1993, Suzanne Mullins won $4.2 million when she played the Virginia Lottery. Unfortunately, Mullins ended up getting into some serious debt. She signed a contract with a company who lent her money and used her lottery winnings as collateral. Suzanne borrowed $197,746.15, and she agreed to pay the money back with the annual checks she was getting through the Virginia Lottery. The debt was to be paid off in 2006. Then the rules of the lottery changed, and Mullins was allowed access to her winnings in a lump sum. She cashed out the remaining amount of her $4.2 million, but stopped making loan payments. Things could only go downhill financially from there.
