KUCHING (May 31): A father and son from Sarawak won the RM21.46 million Toto 4D Jackpot 1 on May 19 by combining the numbers inspired from a dream and the father’s vehicle number.

A press release from Sports Toto today stated that the 43-year-old son, who is a technician, said he and his father would always help each other to buy tickets and sometimes they would share the bets whenever they have good inspiration of numbers like from a dream or interesting numbers that they spotted.

“This round we intended to share a ticket by combining the number I got from a dream – 2717 and my father’s car registration number – 6500.

“I saw many different types of fish in my dream and that was how I came out with my number. I guess by combining my father’s number has given us the luck to win the jackpot,” he said.
