Social media is currently abuzz with people posting about the RM95 million jackpot that has been won by a couple in Penang.

It is understandable that the winners would not want to reveal their identities but recently, they talked about the moment they discovered that they had won the largest jackpot in Malaysian history.

There were 2 winners of the jackpot, 1 from Selangor who took a ‘small’ chunk of RM2.7 million and 1 from Penang who won RM95,036,321.25, reported Oriental Daily and The Sun Daily.

The Penangite is a 41-year-old machinery supplier who only started buying the jackpot tickets when it had reached RM70 million.

“Because of the social media hype, all of my friends were talking about it, so I thought I should also try my luck,” he said.

At first, he bought the numbers according to the ages and birthdates of his family members. After a few times, he mixed in some other numbers.

“My set of lucky numbers – 5, 12, 20, 22, 29 & 41 was what I had bet on for the last few draws before winning.”

After checking the results on the draw date, the man and his wife were both in disbelief, so much that they needed to slap each other to make sure that it was not a dream. Right now, he is still shocked that he is a multi-millionaire.

As for how he wants to use his newfound wealth, he explained that he will be using it to pay off debts and donate some to charity. He’ll plan for how to use the rest of the money at a later time.

Before this RM97 million jackpot, the largest jackpot in the nation was won by yet another Penang man in September 2017.

It seems like there may be something up in Penang, is it the water there? Or maybe the fengshui there is better?

Well, we may never know but the next time the jackpot accumulates more money, we’re definitely going to Penang to get tickets of our own.
