As the old adage goes, money isn't everything. And for some people it could be the worst thing. While winning the lottery may seem like a dream come true, not everyone who hits the jackpot goes on to live happily ever after.

The big winner who suddenly has lots of money also has all types of unforeseen pressures...and, of course, newfound means that can get them into trouble. Many crack under the pressure, end up dealing with jealous family or loved ones, and (since money is no object) quite a few have turned to drugs.  

Seems there has been a curse on lottery big winners. Some winners have encountered strange deaths, ended up as murder victims, committed suicide, or met an otherwise untimely death.  Here's a list of 10 Lottery winners who died tragically because of their winnings.
