A Man Spent RM1.3k On A Mystery Gift Vending Machine And His Biggest Win Was A Hairdryer

There are 150 boxes, several with big prizes, in every round.

  • Mitchell Law spent RM1,300 on a mystery gift vending machine in KLIA2 hoping to win the latest smart gadgets. However, his biggest prizes were a hairdryer and two lunch boxes.

    • According to The Star, users need to insert RM10 into the machine, owned by the company Bee Bae, and select a box of their choice. Inside the box, they would find a card stating what they won and a contact number for collection or delivery.

    • "Every box had a prize. I got a lot of other small prizes like plastic brick toys, playing cards, phone rings and selfie sticks which I’ve given to my friends," said Mitchell.

  • On whether he would try his luck again after 130 boxes bought, Mitchell said he would and that next time the unboxing will be recorded on his Facebook live

    • "I'm not even angry or mad because I'm just trying it for fun. I don’t think my luck is that bad but I just find it really funny," said the 31-year-old graphic designer based in Cambodia.

    • Mitchell’s post on Facebook about his experience has since gone viral, with more than 12,000 shares and over 5,000 comments.

  • Bee Bae managing director Aki Lim said that Mitchell was "just unlucky" as there are 150 mystery boxes in every round and several big prizes up for grabs each time

    • Lim added that, "We also update our Facebook page regularly with photographs of big prize winners."

      Among the big prizes offered by Bee Bae are the flagship smartphones by Apple, Samsung and Oppo, gaming consoles and electrical appliances.

  • Lim stressed that the mystery gift vending machines are only a form of entertainment and should not be treated as gambling machines

    • The concept of mystery box vending machines, which is a hit in Japan and Taiwan, has been gaining popularity in Malaysia.

      Bee Bae currently has nine such vending machines in the Klang Valley and Penang since it began operations in October last year.

      The Star reported that the drop rate for a good prize is around 5%.
