These people are deranged!
26 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

They all actually have the arrogance and ego to insist "god" chose them to win the lottery. It takes one hell of a stupid, arrogant person to make such a proclamation and an even further corruption of character to actually believe it!

Basically we see into the lives of lottery winners and for some reason, each and every single one of them believes the divine hand of the Christian god chose them to win. It's amazing satanists and pagans partaking in human sacrifice don't win every drawing based on this inbred, retard, brainwashed logic. One family believed god gave them millions and their friends innocent daughter cancer so they could increase their arrogance and ego by helping her. Yes, that's literally what is said then translates to!

All this documentary shows is that some decent people with incredibly distorted views on reality are winning the lottery and that yes, because of their short comings they are in the social graces of people who now resent them. In one case, a friend was angry and stated he hated the man because god should have chosen him. The reference to god isn't overly abundant but it's still thrown around liberally. I think the documentary makers were trying to explore the nightmare stories we all hear and read about where the winners throw their money way, friends and family turn on them or how they took the money and vanished. Unfortunately, they didn't do too great of a job.

The real revelation about these people is, you can claim the winnings under a faux name and keep yourself out of the media. Absolutely nobody will know you won unless you WANT them to. The reality is, the interest alone in a commercial savings account can be as high as 12% if you choose the right bank. At 10% the one family would be making 1.25 million dollars a MONTH. I learned one very important thing. If there is a god, this being is blind, deaf and retarded!

Long story short. A few people won the lottery and chose to humiliate themselves by crediting god. Some handled it well, others didn't.
