SINGAPORE - One lucky person has won more than $9.5 million in Thursday's (Feb 11) Toto draw.
It is the largest amount ever won by a single person for a Toto draw in Singapore, a spokesman from Singapore Pools confirmed.
The winning numbers are 7, 8, 17, 39, 46, 49. The additional number is 13. The large prize of $9,545,480 was accumulated over the last three draws on Feb 1, Feb 4 and Feb 8.
Long queues were seen at Singapore Pools outlets on Thursday as many punters wanted to try their luck at winning the rolled-over prize money, Shin Min Daily News reported.
The winning ticket was sold at Block 211, Hougang Street 21, and it was a "System 7 Entry", according to Singapore Pools' website.
Ten people won the Group 2 prize of $89,225.
In March 2015, one person took home a Toto prize of $8 million. That has now been topped.
But Thursday's record could be wiped out if one person wins the top prize in the $12 million Toto Hongbao Draw on Feb 19. Last year, two winners shared the $12 million jackpot in the Hongbao Draw.
Since the Toto draw was updated in Oct 2014, the top five prizes awarded for the draw were between $6 million and $9.5 million.
