Bad dream helps retiree win RM22.8m Toto jackpot
PETALING JAYA: A bad dream turned out to be a good omen for a retiree from Perak. He won the RM22.8 million Toto 4D Jackpot 1 on Oct 9 after getting an inspiration from a bad dream of him getting robbed.
The 68-year-old winner only collected his winnings a week later because he was waiting for his children to return to Malaysia and share the joy.
“I had a bad dream about me getting robbed and it was a nightmare. I decided to bet on the numbers related to the dream – 1592 & 4412 for three consecutive draws.
“Instead of losing something (in my dream), I was bountifully rewarded. What a dramatic turn of events.
“My wife and I had sleepless nights while waiting for my children who are working abroad to come back and claim the jackpot together,” he said when collecting his winnings at STM Lottery Sdn Bhd’s head office in Kuala Lumpur.
The winner added that he wanted to share his newfound wealth with his children hoping that they could make good use of the money.
He bought a standard ticket and won a whopping RM22,832,968.10 from the total RM24,974,321.89 Jackpot 1. The balance of the jackpot was shared by 5 i-System winners.
