Mark hit the jackpot with his friend and business partner Paul Maddison. the two had record winngs of £ 22 million and Mark got his share of £ 11 million. Paul shunned the limelight and faded into the background while Mark decided to have some fun.

Before he could understand it, Mark went through half of his winnings. While he gave to friends and relatives, bought expensive cars and houses, married and then divorced, his problems never seemed to end. His family disowned him as though he had committed a crime.
