An ordinary businessman in his fifties from Selangor, Malaysia became an instant millionaire overnight - thanks to Malaysia's highest ever lottery prize - a whopping RM 47.82 million in payout.
The guy, whose indentitiy was kept secret was the sole winner of the 6/58 lottery draws - organised by Malaysia's biggest Lottery company - Sports Toto, drawn on Tuesday, 28 September 2010.
The 6/58 game means you have to be very very lucky to select the 6 winning number - anything from 1 to 58 in the correct sequence.
The winning number 8, 11, 19, 22, 54, 55 was won by that guy on 28 September 2010.
The probability of anyone hitting the correct sequence is 1 in 40 million, higher odds than you being elected as the President of the United States of America (1 in 10 million)..!!!
It is the biggest ever lottery prize won in Malaysian history.
Sports Toto Malaysia Sdn Bhd said the previous highest jackpot of RM20.9 million was paid out in December 2008.
Millions of people in Malaysia placed their bets on millions of combinations since 3 months ago. However, no winner was announced as the prize money continues to swell to almost RM50 million ringgit.
The lucky guy won the number via lucky pick in which he only spent RM20 - means he gave RM20 to the lottery clerks and the number was picked randomly by the machine.
Sports Toto in its websites said the man is giving some of his winnings for charity and also helping his family members.
Lucky.. Super Lucky.
