Guess what? I won Magnum 4D!

THIS IS A WINNING TICKET

I had a feeling that I was going to get lucky yesterday so I went to the SS2 Magnum 4D outlet where I usually have my lunch and got some lottery tickets. I checked at night during dinner and thought I didn’t win but when I went back home and looked at the ticket – it was indeed a winning number! :)

My number is 8179

I have *never* won Magnum 4D before.

It came out as a Special Prize (RM 180) and I bought RM 3 of that number so I thought I won around RM 600 as I posted it up on the sixthseal.com Facebook page last night.

I just cashed it in and it seems like the Jackpot 4 prize is much larger than I thought. I read it was just RM 68 but when the payout ticket came out it’s RM 68 (Jackpot 4 bonus) x RM 2 (Jackpot minimum bet) x RM 3 (amount bet) = RM 408.

total 4d winnings

Thus RM 540 (RM 180 Special Prize) + RM 408 (Jackpot bonus) = RM 948.

8179 is a concatenation of a family number: 19(81) + 19(79).

The first is my year of birth and the other is the year my only other sibling – my sister – was born.

It’s a small win but I’m quite happy coz I’ve successfully beaten the insane odds. I’ve also had a winning Sports Toto ticket before and stopped buying after that.

Here’s a cheesy shot of me in recognition of the original one from 2006. (see the Sports Toto link from my post back then)

I had hoped to win a couple million from the Jackpot and send my mom and dad for a vacation to the States or Europe and get my mom better treatment but there are no shortcuts in life.

I am officially stopping any further bets from Magnum 4D since I just want to buck the odds. I used to occasionally get the tickets but seriously, the odds are just not there. I’m glad I finally beat it. It’s not much but it’s a bonus Chinese New Year ang pow. :)

    • Yeah, it’s quite unexpected! I’m really glad it happened though, the odds are INCREDIBLE. :)

      Thanks for the kind wishes!

      See ya back home buddy! :D

    • Thanks bro! :)

      Yeah, I hear it’s good for Roosters from 1981, maybe it will be a good year after all.

      Likewise buddy! Wish you all the best in 2013! HUAT AH! :D

    • Haha! Yeah, it was surprising.

      It’s not the amount but more of the fact that I’ve *never* won 4D before (only Toto). The odds are incredibly stacked against you.

      My friend won TODAY on 1221. Guess we’re both lucky. :)

    • Thanks Andrew! :)

      Yeah, I was surprised by the odds too!

      Likewise buddy! I hope 2013 will be an awesome year for you and your family! :D

    • Thanks Nick! :D

      I sure hope so, it’s turning out to be a good year so far.

      Cheers for the well wishes! Let there be more Choi and Fatt to you too bro!

    • Hello Ciana! :D

      Yeah, imagine the odds! I’ve never won 4D before.

      It’s supposed to be a good year for Roosters and I handled a snake during the long weekend.

      Best wishes to you in the upcoming year too! ;)

  1. Hey congrats on the win……I’ve won second prize on magnum once and two times on special and it’s the best feeling ever. Been a bit slow lately so I”m hoping 2013 will bring better luck. You obviously have had a good start in the Snake Year :)

    • Thanks Cas! :)

      I’ve never won the Top 3 and I have a close friend who won 3 TIMES IN A ROW!!!!!

      I cannot believe something like that happens. How can you win so many times in a row?

      The odds are *infinitisimal* (okay, there’s no such word).

      Yet, she did it.

      Thus, I experimented with her and what do you know, I won Special Prize again. What are the odds?

      I hope you have a great year once CNY comes along Cas! All the best! :D
