KUCHING: Magnum 4D Jackpot’s first prize of RM17,513,358 was won last Wednesday by a businessman in his mid 40s from Kuala Lumpur.
Magnum said through a press release issued in Kuala Lumpur that the winning combination was 6282 (second prize) + 2251 (third prize).
On how he got the winning number, he said: “I am a frequent visitor to the Magnum 4D Website.
I went in there and noticed a specially designed forecast chart for the 4D Jackpot.
Out of curiosity, I used the forecast chart to forecast some 4D numbers and placed a bet on System Bet 3 on the three numbers forecasted.”
“I have been buying Magnum 4D Jackpot since it was launched. I had multiple small winnings from the fourth and fifth prize categories and I continued to buy, and now this is my biggest win.”
On what he will be doing with his prize money, he said: “The first thing I will do is donate some of my winnings to charity.
Next, I will expand my business and keep aside some money for my family.”
A Magnum representative said: “It is amazing how this lucky winner got his number, and we are so pleased that he got his numbers from our Forecast Chart.
The chart has been one of the tools that we provide to all our customers to forecast their winning numbers and we have had instances before where customers won on numbers chosen from the forecast chart but this is definitely the biggest win ever.
“We have always encouraged our customers to use the Treasure Chest, Forecast Chart and Random Numbers featured on our website (www.magnum4d.com.my <http://www.magnum4d.com.my/>) to get their lucky numbers.
You never know, it just may bring luck to you and this lucky winner has proven it!”
The Magnum 4D Jackpot’s first prize was also won on Jan 30.
The amount won was RM14,156,353 and the winning combination was 6632 + 9032.
The lucky winner was a business man in his early 50s. A loyal Magnum customer for over 10 years, he got the winning numbers from his past winning number on 4D classic.
He had also won RM68 from the number 6632 in the recent few draws.
Asked what he will do with the money, he said he would travel around the world with his family.
