This time, he got lucky again and won the jackpot in the 27th July draw, which means that he bagged an astounding R61 million (RM16.58 million). He said, “This amount of money will change my family’s lives forever. I can now afford to buy a bigger house for my family and each of my children can have their own room. My family doesn’t need to suffer anymore.”

He also shared his method for picking out his lucky numbers, saying that he has a habit of buying lottery numbers. “I would keep the tickets of the lottery numbers that didn’t win in a drawer and from there, I would choose a new set of numbers. The numbers have to be in a set that I have not bought before and I would do my research every time before I buy a new lottery ticket,” he explained. The man said that although he was rich now, he would not resign from his job.
