KUALA LUMPUR: A 29-year-old former factory worker from Selangor has struck it big after winning the RM23 million Supreme Toto 6/58 jackpot on Jan 12.
The lucky winner, who came to collect his winnings with his siblings, told Sports Toto that it must be a blessing from God that not only he survived a major car accident but also winning the jackpot.
He said he met with an accident last year after a lorry crashed into his car which rendered him comatose for 2 months.
“After that, I was unemployed until I found a job at a factory recently but I had to quit the job because of my health condition.”
“I believe it is God that is helping me to survive all these ordeals,” he said, adding that he would start helping those who are in need with his newfound wealth.
The winner started playing Sports Toto games 8 years ago and it was the same set of lucky numbers – 7, 12, 31, 41, 47 & 49 that he has been betting on since day one that won him a whopping RM23,068,643.65.
“I want to settle all my debts and buy a house. My mother can also stop working and enjoy life,” he said when asked about his plans on using the winnings.
