PETALING JAYA - A businessman's persistence in betting the same set of numbers for the past 20 years paid off when he hit the RM31mil (S$12.3 million) jackpot.
The man, in his 50s, said the winning set of numbers 4, 8, 9, 21, 29 and 35 have emotional attachments for him as they were thought up by him and his then girlfriend while they were dating.
He has been using the same set of numbers through Toto 6/42 and Toto 6/49 before moving on to Mega Toto 6/52, Power Toto 6/55 and Supreme Toto 6/58.
The man's winning set of numbers has won him RM31,413,151.10 from the Power Toto 6/55 Jackpot.
The man said he was calm when he found out about his win through an SMS alert for draw results.
He said he would use the money to pay for the medical expenses of a family member who has been suffering from a chronic illness and his business operations. He also said a big part of the money would be saved for his children.
The man also won an extra RM19,800 from playing System 7, which gave him seven combinations of six numbers each.
