SINGAPORE - The Year of the Rooster could not have gotten off to a better start for one very lucky punter in this year's Toto Hongbao draw.

The man, who placed his bet at the Block 11A Boon Tiong Road outlet in Tiong Bahru, was one of the four winners of the $12 million jackpot (Group 1 prize).

But with a 'QuickPick System Roll' ticket, the man also won one share of the Group 2 prize and 42 shares of the Group 3 prize to emerge as the biggest individual winner of this year's Hongbao draw, Lianhe Wanbao reported.

Based on information from the Singapore Pools website, his winnings would have totalled at least $3,153,084.

That is more than the $3,000,413 shared by each of the four jackpot winners.

Singapore Pools has not released more details about the lucky punter.

According to Wanbao, the owner of the outlet where the man placed his bet, Madam Seah, confirmed that both the Group 1 prize winning ticket and the Group 2 prize winning ticket that had been sold at her shop belonged to the same person.

"It is very rare for one person to win Group 1, Group 2 and Group 3 prizes. I am very happy for him," she said.

This year's Toto Hongbao draw was carried out at 9.30pm on Friday (Feb 10) at the Singapore Pools Building at 210 Middle Road. The winning numbers were 07, 29, 02, 27, 24 and 34, with an additional number 21.
