2 Oct Toto Winner Took Home S$13 Million, Largest Won By 1 Person
They say you make your own luck, and one punter might have made enough luck to retire instantly after they won the jackpot of S$13,077,918 in the Toto Monday (2 Oct) draw.
Interestingly, there were winning tickets in both Groups 1 and 2 prizes from the same shop at Race Course Road.
As there were 25 Group 2 winners, each winner took home S$65,911.
After three draws without a winner, the jackpot had snowballed to S$13 million.
Either there’s something very huat about Rangoon Provision Shop, or a punter has used up his entire life’s luck.
Toto winner on 2 Oct takes home S$13 million jackpot
According to the Singapore Pools website on Monday (2 Oct), a sole punter won the S$13 million jackpot.
The winning numbers, if you’re curious, are:
The additional number was 11. The gods of luck had somehow contrived to award someone who bought numbers in a row between 10 and 13.
The punter bought their winning ticket at Rangoon Provision Shop in Farrer Park.
The ticket was a QuickPick System 8 Entry, which randomly selects 8 numbers for the punter.
Someone also bought a winning Group 2 ticket, also a QuickPick System 8 Entry ticket, at the same shop.
It’s unclear if both tickets belonged to the same punter.
Fourth-largest Toto jackpot in history, but highest amount won by 1 person
S$13 million is such an eye-watering figure for most that we can’t even imagine how large it is.
To contextualise this, Singapore Pools stated that the jackpot on 2 Oct was the fourth-largest ever.
The highest jackpot ever, if you’re wondering, was on 11 Feb 2022 at S$19,416,913– but the prize was split between eight punters.
It meant the eight of them took home S$2,427,114 each.
The jackpot on 2 Oct is the largest ever won by a single punter since 9 Oct 2014, when Singapore Pools updated the Toto format to the 6-out-of-49 we know today.
The next highest share won by a single person was S$12 million on 7 Feb 2020.
