SINGAPORE: A staggering $13 million (US$9.45 million) prize in Monday’s Group 1 Toto jackpot draw carried out by Singapore Pools has been won by a solitary ticket, marking the most significant win in Toto history for the city-state.
The eye-popping jackpot, which consisted of winning numbers 2, 10, 12, 13, 45, and 48, with an additional number of 11, stands out as the highest ever recorded for a Toto draw in Singapore.
This record-breaking prize of $13,077,918 was not an overnight accumulation. It had snowballed over three consecutive draws on 21 Sept, 25 Sept, and last Thursday, as there were no Group 1 prize winners on those days.
For those unfamiliar, to bag the coveted Group 1 prize, a ticket needs to match all six winning numbers. In instances where there’s no winner, the prize pot rolls over to the subsequent draw, increasing the stakes.
As for the location of this monumental win, the golden ticket was purchased from Rangoon Provision Shop – a Singapore Pools outlet located at Block 681 Race Course Road.
The specific ticket was a QuickPick System 8 entry, a popular choice among hopeful punters.
Curiosity buzzes around the city as it remains unknown whether the winning ticket belongs to one lucky individual or if it’s the fruit of a shared group effort.
Adding to the outlet’s newfound fame, Rangoon Provision Shop also sold one of the 25 tickets that won the Group 2 prize. These lucky tickets, each valued at $62,991, had five of the winning numbers alongside the additional number.
The anticipation now rests on the revelation of the winners and their stories behind these fortunate numbers.
