PETALING JAYA: A hawker from Selangor has won Magnum’s 4D Jackpot first prize of RM8.4mil, after buying numbers since the jackpot’s launch in September 2009.

Magnum, in a statement Thursday, said the man, in his 20s, struck the jackpot with the winning combination of 2232 (second prize) + 6675 (third prize) on August 18. He bought a RM2 straight bet.

Both sets of numbers were from his daughter’s new passport, which he recently went to renew with her.

The man, in an interview with Magnum, said he would stop working and use the money to take care of his elderly parents full time.

“I have been a loyal Magnum costumer for more than 20 years and have had winnings (big and small) from Magnum,” he said, adding that he had spent a maximum of RM10 for each draw.

“This money has changed not only my life but that of my whole family. Now, we will all have a better future together.” – The Star
