KUALA LUMPUR: It's a story straight out of a fairytale, as a local resident of Raub, Pahang became an overnight multi-millionaire after winning Magnum 4D’s jackpot prize of a whopping RM28.9mil.
This incredible stroke of luck came from a series of fortunate events on Father’s Day, culminating in a life-changing win.
"It was just pure coincidence. I was taking my child to buy new shoes, and the Magnum 4D outlet is located next door.
“It was towards the evening already and I was rushing to get the shoes for my daughter. I stopped when the Magnum 4D frontliners waved to me.”
He said: “I am a familiar face to them, so it was nice that they took the effort to acknowledge me. One of the frontliners also encouraged me to purchase the Magnum 4D Jackpot Lucky Pick ticket displayed on the window.
“It was a System Bet-3 lucky pick ticket. I've always had my own preferred numbers when purchasing lottery tickets but since it was Father’s Day, and I was feeling a bit happy from the day’s celebration, I decided to try my luck," he explained.
Little did he know that on that fateful Father’s Day, his path to riches had just begun.
“I have won a small amount before when buying my numbers from the same frontliner. It’s incredible how certain people or places can bring us good fortune and luck, " he added.
News of the jackpot winner from Raub, Pahang quickly spread like wildfire throughout social media, as online groups buzzed with excitement.
Unaware that the winning numbers were the ones he held in hand, he initially brushed off the hype.
However, his wife’s keen perception prompted them to investigate further.
"We were discussing the lucky pick ticket I purchased from the Magnum 4D outlet the previous day, and my wife had a hunch that it could be my lucky pick numbers.
“She decided to cross-check the numbers on the Magnum 4D website, and true enough, I was the lucky winner!
“Turns out that my lucky pick numbers of 6736 (Second prize) and 0651 (Third prize) were the winning jackpot numbers," he recalled excitedly.
Still in disbelief, the winner visited the Magnum 4D outlet the following day seeking clarification from the frontliners.
Grateful for their pro-active approach in encouraging him to buy the lucky pick ticket displayed on the window, he expressed his happiness, stating, "It was the frontliner’s effort that caught my attention and made me decide to buy the tickets in the first place."
