A lucky punter who spent $1 on the QuickPick option won more than $8 million on emerging as the sole winner of Monday's Toto draw.

The prize - totalling $8,045,163 - is the second-largest amount won by a single person for a Toto draw in Singapore. Another punter had walked away with $9.5 million in the Feb 11 draw.

The winning numbers for the draw were 1, 10, 24, 26, 36 and 47, while the additional number was 4. Eight other people won the Group 2 prize of $91,209 each.

The Singapore Pools website said the winning ticket was purchased at Kim Chwee Trading, located in Jurong East Street 24.

Punters usually choose the QuickPick option when they do not have any numbers in mind, with the system generating a random set of numbers for them. The next Toto draw, which takes place today, will have an estimated jackpot of $1 million.
