Lottery ticket gift turns wedding guest into instant millionaire

A guest who attended a wedding dinner in Kuala Lumpur last weekend became an instant millionaire after winning the second prize in the recent Pan Malaysian Sweeps Sdn Bhd draw, Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported.

A sales agent said a customer from Kuala Lumpur bought 1,000 lottery tickets from him in early September.

"The customer said the lottery tickets were to be given away to the guests who attended his child's wedding reception.

"I sold the tickets numbered from 3292000 to 3292999 to the customer, and 3292699 has won the second prize amounting to RM1million (S$324,301)," he said.

He added that the other 999 lottery ticket owners could also get RM100 each because the first four digits (3292) of their tickets were matched with the winning number for the second prize.
