After the dust settled, three lucky punters emerged as the winners this time round, each winning a cool sum of S$4.27 million.

They bought their golden tickets at outlets across Singapore, in Bencoolen, West Coast and Tampines.

TOTO Hong Bao Group 1 prize was S$12.8M, winners split prize 3 ways

The latest draw took place at 9.30pm on Friday (3 Feb), for a Group 1 prize of S$12,810,104.

The winning numbers ended up being 4, 6, 21, 25, 34 and 40, with an additional number of 48.

As three people managed to crack the winning formula, they will split the prize three ways.

Thus, each of them gets S$4,270,035.

22 other punters get the not-inconsequential sum of S$122,585.

Though it wasn’t as high as last year’s Hong Bao jackpot of S$16 million — which eventually snowballed to S$19.4 million — the possibility of a life-changing windfall was just too tempting to resist.

That’s why snaking queues were seen at Singapore Pools outlets across the island.

At one particularly auspicious outlet at Fu Lu Shou Complex in Rochor, the queue stretched from the basement store all the way to the ground floor and around the building.
