Each week a lottery draw is held by the Intersweep Lottery. When a winning ticket has been drawn, lottery representative Patrick Flaherty (Ben Murphy of Alias Smith and Jones fame) visits the winner to present him with a cashier’s cheque.

Eric Rush (Marshall Colt), the IRS agent, accompanies him on every mission to collect the government’s share.

The series presents the incidents that occur in the lives of those lottery winners when they suddenly come into unexpected wealth.

Three such stories are presented on each program.
