Late father 'helps' son win lottery

KUALA LUMPUR - A businessman hit a multi-million lottery jackpot with the numbers "given" by his late father.

The man from here won RM17.2mil (S$6mil) in the latest Toto 4D Jackpot 1 on June 7.

When claiming his prize money, the 50-year-old told the company that he dreamt about his late father, who gave him the winning pair of numbers - 6736 and 3203 - a night before the draw.

"This is too surreal. I must thank my father for sending this great fortune to me as a retirement gift.

"I want to use the prize money for my retirement, to do charity work, settle my debts and go overseas for vacation," he said, adding he would also share part of the money with his 11 brothers and sisters.
