This is a follow-up on my post of 20th June about the woman who sold the winning Lottery Ticket of RM17,000,000.00
Misery of man who missed out on RM17mil
THE tale of a young man who missed becoming the next big millionaire by a mere ticket was highlighted by China Press.
One of the lottery tickets he bought was one number behind the winning ticket, which paid out RM17mil, including the RM14mil jackpot.
The daily reported yesterday that the man bought tickets ranging from 5638964 to 5638971. The winning ticket was 5638963.
To further compound his misery, he was knocked down by a motorcyclist while on his way back to Muar from outstation.
The man said a woman ticket seller had approached him.
“I still remember her telling me that the first person to buy lottery tickets from her on that day would win the jackpot,” he said.
Winning lottery ticket seller goes into hiding
AFTER a punter from Muar won a whopping RM17mil in a Big Sweep draw, the person who sold the winning ticket has gone into hiding, China Press reported.
The speculation in town is that the ticket seller is an old woman, who fears she would be a target of crooks.
An official of the lottery company in Kuala Lumpur, identified only as Ye, said their Muar representative had scolded her for disclosing details of the winning ticket.
She said that because there were not many lottery representatives in Muar it was easy to find out who sold the winning ticket.
Ye recalled that some years back a Big Sweep representative in Kuala Lumpur became a victim of robbers when it was found that he had sold a winning ticket.
