KUALA LUMPUR: It was a Christmas to remember for one lucky 56-year-old businessman from Bukit Jalil as he scooped the Magnum 4D Jackpot Grand Prize of a whopping RM14mil on Christmas Eve.
He said winning the fortune was truly unexpected and it indeed brought him some Christmas cheer, the moment he found out he struck the Magnum 4D Jackpot.
He placed his bets at the Magnum 4D outlet in Sungai Pelek, Sepang as he was visiting a friend there.
“It doesn’t matter where I am, if I see a Magnum 4D outlet, I will usually try my luck. I have been an ardent supporter of Magnum 4D for the past 30 years. I feel that my luck is with Magnum 4D. It is always a welcoming feeling when I step into the classy Magnum 4D outlet,” he shared.
“I usually have my own strategy to play the 4D Jackpot game. The moment the Jackpot amount hits RM5 million and above, I will place my bets using Permutation Play (“Pau”). This way, I can multiply my chances of buying all possible digit combinations, in all their different orders. I feel it is fun to come up with my own personal lucky numbers or any numbers that appear in my mind,” he explained.
The winning numbers 3719 (first prize) and 3787 (second prize) were the lucky winner’s numbers. 3719 was a permutation of his old car number, and 3787 was a random lucky number that caught his attention on that day he placed his bets.
“I would say I do have my luck and fortune with Magnum 4D as I have won a few millions before this, but of course, this will be my biggest jackpot winning. During the results day, I was eagerly watching the live results on the Magnum 4D website. The moment I saw both numbers displayed among the top numbers, I was in disbelief. I kept checking the results several times. This “big” win feels amazing. I really feel lucky, feel that somewhat I was chosen and there is a huge feeling of relief," the businessman added.
When asked how he will be spending his prize money, the winner said that he will enjoy his life by first ensuring all his finances are in order, then, celebrating the upcoming Chinese New Year with great happiness and prosperity.
According to a Magnum 4D spokesperson, there had been another 4D Jackpot-1 winner from Sibu Salim, Sarawak who won RM7.9mil on Nov 19 this year: “We would like to congratulate all winners and hope that the prize money will bring upon positive changes to their lives. It is easy to play with Magnum 4D.”
