Why numbers are important in Malaysia

A Sarawakian businessman snagged the Sports Toto 4D Jackpot 1 last Tuesday, taking home a whopping RM22,537,854.04.

The winning numbers, 9161 and 4563, came from his brother's car plate and a number he happened to see in three car plates around the same time on the day he placed his regular bets, the elated man said.

He said he started to check his bet tickets after receiving a call from his brother telling him his car plate number was one of Toto 4D's top prize numbers.

He then found that two sets of 4D numbers he had bet on had come up to be top prize winning numbers.

When asked what he would do with the multi-million fortune, the agricultural products trader said he was still in a daze, but would place his winnings in fixed deposits while he discussed with his family how the money should be used.

He also pledged to allocate a certain amount of his agricultural products to the less fortunate in his community from now on.

Adding to his jackpot winnings, he walked away with an additional RM3,360 from winning 20 sets of the third prize as a result of using System Play 12 to bet.

He said he has been betting on all Toto 4D games for the past 10 years in hopes of one day striking it big, and his persistence had finally paid off.

Meanwhile, the second prize of the Toto 4D Jackpot totalling RM102, 255 was also won on the same draw.

The winner also took home an additional RM472 for betting through System Play 4.
