Magnum 4D Jackpot First Prize of RM11,246,612 won again by a contractor

KUCHING: Magnum’s Jackpot First Prize of RM11,246,612 was won       on Tuesday by a contractor in his mid 50s from Selangor.The combination that won him the grand prize was 3980 + 8429.

The winner has been a loyal Magnum customer for over 30 years and has been playing the game on and off whenever he feels lucky or when a significant event happens in his life.

He was quoted as   saying: “I have won 1st prize from Magnum   before but my biggest    win, before the Magnum 4D Jackpot was  introduced last year, was when I bought the numbers for my son’s birth date and his birth certificate.”

When asked how he chose the winning numbers he explained that he had an eye sore that Tuesday so he went to the pharmacy to get something for his eye.

Before going home, he went into the Magnum 4D website and used the Treasure Chest feature      to check on numbers related to eye sores and    he found 3 numbers — 3980 (Eye Drops), 9585 (Eye Mo) and 8429 (Sore Eye). He went out again later that evening to buy the 3 numbers by placing a Magnum 4D Jackpot bet    of System Bet 3 and paid RM6 for it. He only realised he won the Jackpot First prize the next morning as he was resting the night before.

He further stated: “I found out that I won the next day when I once again went into the Magnum 4D website to check on the draw results. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw my numbers appearing as the first  prize and third prize. I thought that the eye sore was affecting my eye sight.”

The contractor will use a portion of the winnings to help his family members and close friends in their financial difficulties.

A Magnum representative said: “It is just so amazing that something as insignificant as an eye sore could win you millions of ringgit. We have always encouraged our customers to use the Treasure Chest feature in our website (HYPERLINK to get their lucky numbers as we believe that events in our every day lives have meaning and as this lucky winner has proven, it could just change your life overnight.”

The Magnum 4D  Jackpot 1st prize was     also won recently on    April 10, 2010. The amount won was RM11,140,586    and the winning combination was 1087 + 6935. The lucky winner was a Chinese man in his late 30s and he worked as a welder.

A loyal Magnum customer for over 10 years, he explained that he got the winning numbers  from shopping receipts from goods that his  mother bought that day. When asked what he  would do with the money, he said he would buy a house as he had never owned a house as he was from a poor family and now that he   had the means, he would ensure that his mother got her dream house.
