When people think Frank's won the lottery he's not about to say otherwise with endless free drinks coming his way.

Frank Gallagher has won the lottery - or so the residents of Chatsworth believe when Yvonne announces it on the local news. And Frank's not about to tell that he's never bought a lottery ticket in his life when free drinks are coming his way. But will he 'fess up when Liam is kidnapped and the ransom fee is his so-called winnings?
