The lucky retiree from Selangor had been placing his odds on the same 4D number for over a decade, SportsToto revealed

"The winner who came to collect his winnings said that he had been betting on the same pair of 4D numbers for more than 10 years.

"The 69-year old winner had spent RM6 to buy a System 3 Toto 4D Jackpot ticket, which helped to increase his chances of winning by betting three sets of numbers," the statement from SportsToto reads.

He was one of the biggest winners in the RM61.7 million jackpot pool, New Straits Times (NST) reported.

A Sarawakian also won big and secured a huge share in the jackpot pool, winning some RM22.9 million from the Supreme Toto 6/58 jackpot on 3 June

"Being a Lotto fan himself, the winner said he had bought three sets of numbers for his ticket with five same numbers for each set and this won him an additional RM13,776 for winning second prize of the Supreme Toto 6/58 on top of his winning jackpot amount of RM22.9 million," theSun reported, quoting SportsToto's statement. 

He told The Star Online that he would only spend RM10 for each draw.
