PETALING JAYA: Less than two weeks before Chinese New Year, a young manager has received the biggest angpow of his life.
The man, in his late 30s, walked away with a whopping RM7.58mil when he won the the Da Ma Cai 1+3D Jackpot and became the youngest winner to date.
While it was not the manager’s first win, as he had scored first prize “a few times” in the past two years with 1+3D numbers, it was by far his biggest.
In a statement, Da Ma Cai said the winner had tried his luck with the “system bet” with numbers derived from his family’s vehicle registration numbers and their MyKad numbers.
“System bet” allows players to cover all possible pairing combinations of their favourite 1+3D numbers.
The minimum is three sets of 1+3D numbers to a maximum of 480 sets of 1+3D numbers. Two of the manager’s seven chosen numbers, “5225” and “3760” were the lucky digits which won him the huge cash prize on Jan 15. The winning ticket was sold in Taman Connaught, Cheras.
When asked what he planned to do, the manager said he would put the money in a bank to earn some interest before deciding what to do with it later.
