It emerged as second prize in the Sept 6 4D draw.
And the same four digits - '0000' -came back with a bang in yesterday's draw. This time, it hit the first prize.
According to the Singapore Pools website, this is the 11th time the same set of digits have emerged as the winning numbers since 2000.
It has made the second prize once, starter prizes four times and consolation prizes five times.
Punters The New Paper spoke to were shocked to see these numbers appear again, and so soon after their last appearance.
"What are the chances? Those who have been patiently buying these same numbers every time must be so happy," said Mr Chan Eng Han, 35, a sales executive.
Another punter who wanted to be known as Madam Wong, 68, agreed.
The retiree said: "This number is so 'hot' now. Maybe I should start buying it too."
