Mr Tham Sin Chong was helping his grandson with homework on Sunday morning when he flipped through The New Paper and found he was a winner in the 7 Daily Wins.
"Wow, I won sports vouchers," he told his family.
Mr Tham, 57, knew that he had till evening to collect the prize. So he went out with his family, then came home to rest. Later, he collected the $100 worth of Royal Sporting House vouchers.
The lorry crane driver has been a TNP reader for more than 20 years. He usually reads the paper during lunchtime.
He said he enjoys reading the paper, both the news and sports sections.
Overjoyed at his win, he said: "I'm planning to buy birthday gifts for my grandchildren as their birthdays fall in December."
His three grandchildren keep him busy. They are four-year-old twins - a boy and a girl - and another granddaughter aged one.
He planned to get them sports shoes and get himself a T-shirt as a souvenir of his win, he said.
