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. :)

I won the Sports Toto 6/42 Jackpot!

sports toto win

This is not a belated April Fool’s joke – I really did strike the TOTO 6/42 Jackpot! The 1st Prize Jackpot currently stands at RM 1,234,004.69. I bought 4D at Sports TOTO (Lotto Games) on Saturday:

1118 (6)
6130 (6)
6666 (6) – Sold Out
so I got
6661 (6)

and a LP (not Lampa, Lucky Pick – the automated numbers pick system for the 6 + 1 Jackpot) for both 6/42 and 6/49. I checked the Sports TOTO website [sportstoto.com.my] last night for the numbers before I left the office and none of my 4D picks came out.

Sports-Toto-Win-Results

I checked the 6/42 and 6/49 results just for laughs since I don’t
expect that to ever come out and sure enough, the 6/49 numbers were way
off. I checked the 6/42 results and was about to dismiss it (since the
first digit was off) when a strange realization came over me…there
were a lot of matches…

The draw results for 6/42 were:
6, 13, 18, 19, 20, 33

My numbers were:
5, 13, 18, 19, 20, 22

I got the middle four digits and I wasn’t sure if that was enough
for a win, so I checked using their automated results checking system:

Did I Win? Yeah, 5th Prize!

I surfed over to the prize payouts for the 6/42 system and found out that I have won a whopping RM 30!!!!!111

………

Fuck lar.

The numbers were just off by 1 digit in the first and last numbers.
I would have been a millionaire if it wasn’t for the digit offset. The
remarkable near-win made me just a 30-dollaraire now.

Oh well, at least I covered my initial seeding fund and I also got a
printed result from one of the peddlers that stalk the traffic light
junctions while driving home (50 cents a copy) just coz I was at a red
light and he was there.

The total cost for my bet yesterday was RM 19.80 for the 4D numbers
(I got 6 units of each of the 3 number picks at RM 1.10 per unit) and
add RM 2.20 for the 6/42 and 6/49 lucky picks (RM 1.10 each) and that
totals to RM 22.

I went to cash in my winning TOTO 6/42 ticket just now and got the 5th Prize payout of RM 30. I just have enough for a pack of cigarettes after covering the costs.

Thus, I really did strike the Sports TOTO 6/42 Jackpot…but only got the 5th Prize. Oh well, RM 30 is better than nothing. :)

A$20 million Powerball

I was having lunch at McDonald’s today when I noticed this large
poster at a newsagent advertising the Powerball draw for tomorrow
(well, technically today) which is for A$20 million. Powerball is a
national lottery which runs into the high millions about once a year. I
think. I’ve only bought it once, and that was about two years ago. A
couple of us went past the Tattslotto agent at the campus center after
finishing the final exam for the semester and saw the draw for A$30
million. We each bought one and we were discussing the things we could
do with that kind of money over dinner. Heh.

Well, I also got a ticket today, and in the unlikely event that I
win the A$20 million, well…hmm…well, I don’t know what I’ll do with the
money, but I’ll do something with it. Probably fly to Amsterdam and
have coffee in one of those coffee shops I keep on hearing about. I
think that’s what they do in coffee shops over there anyway. Drink
coffee, that is. I hear they have some really good coffee with unusual
names like White Widow, Purple Haze and Durban Poison. Nothing beats
having a good coffee and snacking on something healthy like mushrooms.

Anyway, today was a really warm day as well. There was a lot of
smoke too, from the bushfires still burning in country Victoria. This
photo was taken at Richmond station. The heat only dissipated an hour
ago, according to this
[theage.com.au]. Good thing I wasn’t planning on sleeping tonight to
finish up my Industrial Experience stuff for tomorrow. I wouldn’t have
been able to sleep anyway.
