A Riveting Story About Grit, Determination and the Refusal to Give In or Give Up — No Matter How Great the Odds.
As a welfare kid who grew up in the streets, Randy Rush had to fight for everything he got and knew what it was like to struggle. So, when he was suddenly handed $50 million in tax-free money, he vowed to use his new-found wealth to help others. But what he didn’t see coming was Jeremy Crawford.
In his gripping, adrenaline-packed memoir, Rush takes readers on his rocket-fueled journey after a trip to the corner grocer to buy food for his beloved cat, Conway Kitty, leads to the discovery that he has won Canada’s $50 million Lotto Max jackpot.
Soaring on a seemingly endless endorphin high, Rush spends the months following his win traveling, feeding his passion for rare sports cars, considering charitable causes, and splurging on friends — paying off their debts and even giving them a free place to stay in million-dollar homes. But his world comes crashing down when he discovers that Dave Crawford, a man he loved like an older brother and had generously provided for, has served him up to his con artist son, Jeremy — who scams Rush out of nearly $5 million.
Reeling from Dave’s betrayal and fueled by the discovery that the Crawfords are serial con artists who have devastated the lives of more than a hundred others, Rush embarks on a mission to take his adversaries down. But as his quest for justice drags on, his festering rage reaches a boiling point and he is faced with a choice: Let the Crawford’s cons destroy him, or re-focus his attention on doing good in the world and enjoying the enormous gift he has been given.

REVIEW by LAWonder10:
13 Billion to One is a remarkable true story of a reformed man who was earning a middle class income, and actually won a $50,000,000. Lottery!
Randy Rush had experienced a rough time growing up. After a kind word from an adult enabled him to change his wayward life, he became a better, hard working human being.
After winning the Lottery, he wanted to pay it forward with his friends and some family members. What Randy Rush discovered was a very disheartening, "learning lesson".
It is sad how wealth and success often brings the worst out in mankind. It is also shocking how many people get away with crimes while the innocent often are left to suffer.
Randy Rush's negative and positive experiences are enlightening as he shares them in an expressive manner. His presentation of these events are never boring.
After many situations and expenditures, Randy shares what he soon found to be peace and happiness.
This is so fantastical, it seems impossible. Included in the center of this account are photographs of some key people.
I offer a Five Stars rating for this true story.
*This book was gifted me with no pressure to post a positive review. This is my honest review.
