Update 20 April 2011
The NST reported on the 19th that it was not one person, but 16 Sabahans friends between 30 and 50 years of age.
The Toto afficionados had pooled money on System 9 with the numbers 2, 3, 8, 19, 23, 27, 28, 31 and 56, of which 6 of those came up.
In addition to the snowball jackpot of RM47.84 million, they also won an additional RM127,744 because they’d bet on System 9, hence the total winnings is RM47.97 million.
Another source said all of them are Chinese males, and that they’d played System 9 for 5 straight draws, an investment of RM2,000+. So, depending on each person’s contributions, someone got around RM4 million, and someone got the smallest sum of around RM1 million. All of them have gone to Kuala Lumpur to collect the winnings cheque.
