Housewife wins $4.51 million jackpot


PETALING JAYA - A housewife who bet on her car plate numbers is now set on the road to riches when she won the RM12mil (S$4.51 million) Toto 4D Jackpot 1 draw.

The 44-year-old woman from Kuching bought the winning pair of "2170" and "8426" during a trip to her hometown in Miri to celebrate Chinese New Year.

She said she would use the prize money for property investment, pay off debts and also to set aside savings for her children's education.

The lucky woman said she had been betting on every draw for about a year.

Apart from the RM12,071,566.25 Jackpot, her System 3 ticket also won her additional prize money of RM336.

"I could not sleep. I was in a state of disbelief when I found out about the news. I called the Sports Toto head office to confirm my winnings.

"I only play Sports Toto games, so I feel that I am very lucky in the Year of the Goat for hitting the jackpot during the Chinese New Year period," she said.
