Mark Chizum

Twenty years ago, Mark Chizum, of Argos, “hit it big.”

On this date in 1991, Mark was one of two winners of a $10 million dollar lotto drawing. He was a $5.00 to $10.00 player every week and at the time, he was a laid-off truck driver who had been on unemployment since November of 1990.

The day of the pay-off just happened to be Mark’s birthday.

His advice at the time for other players, “Keep trying. It’s there to win.”
