It’s a one-in-a-million chance, or maybe once in a lifetime, to strike the lottery.
And those who do would usually drop their jobs, retire and enjoy the rest of their life—then realise that they’ve spent all their winnings and panic because they have nothing left.
But a recent lottery winner who works in Singapore will not be doing that. Instead, he has plans for other things.
Malaysian Who Won $9.8 Million in Toto is Going to Continue Working in Singapore as a Supervisor
The winner of the Supreme Toto 6/58 draw last Wednesday (Sept 14) was actually a Malaysian man working in Singapore whilst living in Johor. He is working as a supervisor in a trading company.
Apparently, some of the winning numbers—1, 3, 9, 11, 26, 47—were his “favourites” that he regularly placed bets on.
He hit the jackpot of $9.8 million but he’s not using it for leisure yet. In fact, the man has no intentions to retire and wishes to continue as a supervisor for now.
According to The Sun Daily, the lucky man will focus on paying off his mortgage and buy a few properties probably as an investment.
He also plans to set up an education fund for his children, and also donate some of the money to charity.
This man really has his financial plan all thought out.
What is Supreme Toto?
For the non-gamblers, you might be a little confused about the difference between Toto 4D and Supreme Toto, both of which are in Malaysia but very similar to Singapore’s lottery.
Toto 4D uses four numbers and has the option of betting “big” or “small”.
Betting “small” gives you a chance of winning a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd prize. But betting “big” will give you access to winning the Special and Consolation prize as well.
But the winnings for people who bet “big” are less than those who bet “small”.
On the other hand, Supreme Toto uses six numbers with a minimum bet of RM2 (S$0.62) to win.
Supreme Toto prizes are much higher than 4D, by that I mean millions.
People who chose this option are usually ones who hope to be that lucky star and be a millionaire overnight.
While everything seems easy-peasy, gambling is still an addictive, money-draining, sport.
There are tons out there who have gone out of their way to illegally gamble and throw their entire life savings for a once-in-a-lifetime chance.
In Singapore, the minimum age to place bets at Singapore Pools is 18 and 21 for other locations such as the casino.
Those found guilty of illegally gambling will be liable to a fine of up to $300,000 or six years jail, or both.
