PETALING JAYA - A young couple from Selangor won RM1 million (S$329,000) with their first purchase of Big Sweep Super 7 tickets.

"I was going to a hawker centre in Puchong when I passed an outlet selling Big Sweep tickets.

"I was attracted to the Super 7 tickets at the counter," he said.

Although he knew about Big Sweep he said he was unfamiliar with Super 7 tickets.

He took a chance and bought 10 tickets at RM5 each. A week later his wife reminded him of the draw.

He was ecstatic that one of his tickets with the number "1864897" won RM1 million.

Since 2015, all surpluses from Big Sweep are donated to the Yu Cai Foundation, a charity dedicated to nurturing talent through education.
