Have you ever wished that you were lucky enough to win awesome prizes whenever you enter a contest? Imagine going into a shop and winning a large amount of money for being the 100th customer. That is a dream most would want to become reality.
One way of winning money is through the lottery but not everyone would be willing to bet their money on something that is not guaranteed. Some would only do it as a hobby but don’t expect to win anything. With that being said, who knows if one day, you’ll get lucky like this man who won and became a millionaire overnight!
A 44-year-old man from Johor was announced the Grand Prize winner for the Sports Toto Supreme Toto 6/58 jackpot last week (Thursday, 15th September). The man won a total amount of RM31.9 million, making him one of the luckiest and wealthiest winners in Malaysian history. It was reported that the man bought his winning ticket at Bukit Indah Garden, Johor Bahru the day before he was announced the winner.
The lucky winner chose to remain anonymous for various (and obvious) reasons but what we do know is that he is still currently working in Singapore as a supervisor for a trading company. In an interview with Sin Chew Daily, the man revealed that he always plays the jackpot games in his spare time but does not set high expectations for himself.
“I never imagined that I would be lucky enough to win the jackpot,” he said. Although he practically became a millionaire overnight, the 44-year-old Johorean stated that he currently has no plans for early retirement. “I will not (stop) here but will continue to work in Singapore”, he shared in Sports Toto’s Facebook post yesterday (Wednesday, 21st September).
When asked about what he will do with the money, the hard-working husband and father said he is planning to pay off all his loans, donate to charity, buy a property and fund his children’s education. Apart from the Grand prize, the man also won other prizes worth RM83.8k.
