Eatery worker wins $5.1m jackpot in Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR - A restaurant worker in his early sixties from Negri Sembilan was speechless when he won the Da Ma Cai 1+3D Jackpot of RM13.2 million (S$5.1 million) on March 12.

The man said he had combined his motorcycle number, 1198, with the last four digits of his mobile number, 0098, to derive the winning 1+3D Jackpot numbers.

He received his winnings at the Da Ma Cai head office yesterday.

The loyal Da Ma Cai customer said his win came as a surprise as he did not expect to strike such a big prize despite winning the 1+3D game on numerous occasions.

With the surprised windfall at hand, he said that he had yet to decide how to utilise the money.

"Maybe I'll start a restaurant business with the jackpot money," he said.

Since January, Da Ma Cai has paid out a cumulative total of RM25.9 million to lucky jackpot winners.
