SINGAPORE - It was a win he had been hoping for - he had been checking the winning numbers each week with bated breath.
On Monday, Mr Abu Bakar Ibrahim finally got lucky, walking away with $1,000 in the TNP Bonus Draw.
"I took part in Bingo but didn't win. I didn't give up and I've been playing the Bonus Draw since the week after it started," said the 56-year-old driver.
"I was very excited when at about 1.30pm on Monday, I found out that I had won."
The father of one has been reading The New Paper for more than 20 years.
"I like TNP because it's simple, easy to understand and it's not too long-winded," he said.
The Bonus Draw numbers will be published in TNP daily until Oct 3.
