Duckburg's mayor and his council are desperate. The public lottery tickets' sales have sunk and they need to find a solution. They
decide to sell that public company to Scrooge. Unaware of the company's condition, Scrooge gladly accepts.
Rockerduck finds out and broadcasts it on his channel. Scrooge finds out too, soon afterward. With the secret out, Donald's uncle
loses his credibility as a businessman and his business partners are abandoning him, one after another. Is this the end of McDuck's
Of course, Scrooge won't give up so easily. After recovering from the initial shock, he tries to regain his reputation, deploying his
friends and family, who disguise themselves in order to buy a bunch of lottery tickets, so that the sales will rise and Scrooge will be
recognized as a business genius once more. BTW, I didn't understand why they had to disguise themselves to do that. Also, how
come Brigitta accepted to do that without asking for a date with Scrooge or something in exchange?
Anyway, that was poor planning to begin with and, soon, Rockerduck reveals, through his channel, his rival's scheme. Now Scrooge's
situation seems even worse and the sales have dropped almost to zero. Yet he seems happy, as if everything is under control!
Later, a random person buys a lottery ticket and wins one million dollars. The strage thing is that the next three random persons
to buy a lottery ticket win too!
Scrooge gives an interview to the media and is like 'It is obviously a typo. I'll immediately withdraw all lottery tickets from the
market and replace them.' No sooner has he spoken those words than everybody in Duckburg (including the journalists present
at the aforementioned interview) run to kiosks to buy as many tickets as they can.
Scrooge reveals to his nephews what the plan was: The extra winning tickets were only three! Now everybody believes that, because
of a typo, all tickets are winning ones, so the sales will skyrocket.
What I struggle to get and still don't get is how Scrooge knew that, with sales almost dropped to zero, those who bought tickets
would happen to get their hands on the four winning ones. This story seems to sacrifice logic for gag sake at many parts, but the
final result is surprisingly good.
Oh, and, in the final scene, an elated Scrooge asks his printers to print 20 million new tickets. However, this time, due to a real
typo, all of them are winning ones, which means Scrooge is gonna lose 20.000.000*1.000.000= 20 trillion dollars! Oh, god, thankfully,
the story spared us that tragic event, ending before it happening!
