Singaporean wins S$7.8 million lottery in Malaysia

Who knew a mere RM4 could have you winning a big RM24.3mil (S$7.8 million) for the Supreme Toto 6/58 jackpot in Malaysia?

Talk about luck huh!?

A lucky Singaporean housewife bet RM4 on two sets of numbers -- which made her RM24,330,366.50 richer on Jan 4.

According to a report by The Star, she claimed her winnings a week later at the Sports Toto head office in Kuala Lumpur.

She told The Star:

"I live in Singapore but I often ask my uncle, who lives in Johor to buy the numbers for me."

In fact, it was her uncle who broke the news of her big win after the draw.

"I do not bet regularly and the winning set of numbers (19, 20, 23, 50, 53, 54) is my favourite which I have been buying for four years."

The grateful niece plans to reward her uncle for buying the winning ticket for her, and will also be using the money to fund her children's education. 

Her winnings were part of RM56mil in Sports Toto jackpots won by various individuals since Christmas eve.

The cascading feature of Toto 4D jackpot saw five winners walk away with the RM10,420,860.80 Toto 4D Jackpot 2 on Dec 24; while four winners shared the RM1,406,384.90 Toto 4D Jackpot 2 on Jan 7; and six winners shared the RM9,477,739.55 Toto 4D Jackpot 2 on Jan 8.

Cascading takes place when the Toto4D Jackpot 1 hits RM30mil. The amount in excess of RM20mil shall cascade and be added to the Toto 4D Jackpot 2 if there is no Jackpot 1 winner for that draw.
