Although most of us dream of winning the lottery, there have been plenty of Malaysians who have gone on and done it simply out of an act of luck.
Recently, a local resident of Raub, Pahang, became an overnight multi-millionaire after winning Magnum 4D’s jackpot prize of a whopping RM28.9 million.
The incredible stroke of luck came from a series of fortunate events on Father’s Day, culminating in a life-changing win.
The winner, who wishes to remain anonymous, recounts the events leading up to his astonishing victory, “It was just pure coincidence. I was taking my child to buy new shoes, and the Magnum 4D outlet is next door.”
“It was towards the evening already, and I was rushing to get the shoes for my daughter. I stopped when the Magnum 4D front liners waved to me. I am a familiar face to them, so it was nice that they made an effort to acknowledge me.”
“One of the front liners also encouraged me to purchase the Magnum 4D Jackpot Lucky Pick ticket displayed on the window. It was a System Bet-3 lucky pick ticket,” he explained.
“I’ve always had my preferred numbers when purchasing lottery tickets, but since it was Father’s Day, and I was feeling a bit happy from the day’s celebration, I decided to try my luck,“ he shared.
When buying my numbers from the same frontline, he had previously won a small amount. When the news broke, he was initially unaware that the winning numbers were the ones he held, and he initially brushed it off.
However, his wife’s prompted them to investigate further.
“We were discussing the lucky pick ticket I purchased from the Magnum 4D outlet the previous day, and my wife had a hunch that it could be my lucky pick number.”
“She decided to cross-check the numbers on the Magnum 4D website, and true enough, I was the lucky winner! Turns out that my lucky pick numbers of 6736 (2nd Prize) + 0651 (3rd prize) were the winning jackpot numbers,“ he recalled excitedly.
Still in disbelief, the winner visited the Magnum 4D outlet the following day, seeking clarification from the front liners.
Grateful for their proactive approach in encouraging him to buy the lucky pick ticket displayed on the window, he expressed his happiness, stating, “It was the front liner’s effort that caught my attention and made me decide to buy the tickets in the first place.”
Congratulations to the man! What would you do if you won that much money? Do feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section.
