And then this morning, I read of another man (here in Malaysia) who had won RM47.82mil – the largest ever lottery jackpot in Malaysia.
Sports Toto Malaysia Sdn Bhd said the previous highest jackpot of RM20.9mil was paid out in December 2008.
The winner, a businessman in his 50s, learned of his win from the Sports Toto website on Tuesday night after the draw results were announced. His winning set of numbers – 8, 11, 19, 22, 54 and 55 – were derived from a random computerised selection.
He said part of his winnings will go to charity. (No mention of shopping and diamonds. Unlike the US winner, we will not get to see a picture of the Malaysian gentleman. Here in Malaysia, identities of big winners of lotteries or jackpots are never revealed for security purposes. However, if you are a jackpot winner in the Genting Highlands casino, your name and identification number will be listed in their list of jackpot-winners displayed inside the casino.
Heartiest Congratulations to the winners!
Here's a thought. What would you do if you win a multi-million Ringgit or dollar jackpot? Besides spending it, of course. Ever given that any thought?
