8 Winners Split Group 1 Prize Of $19.4M After Draw On 11 Feb
On the 11th day of Chinese New Year (CNY), many Singaporeans were hoping for a very huat year indeed.
They formed long queues all week long, hoping to become an instant millionaire in the TOTO hongbao draw.
After the dust settled, 8 lucky punters emerged as the winners this time round, each winning a cool sum of $2.4 million.
2 of them bought their golden tickets at outlets in Chua Chu Kang.
Group 1 prize was $19.4M
The latest draw took place at 9.30pm on Friday (11 Feb), for a Group 1 prize of $19,416,908.
The winning numbers ended up being 9, 13, 14, 16, 18 and 28, with an additional number of 10.
As 8 people managed to crack the winning formula, they will split the prize 8 ways.
Thus, each of them gets $2,427,114.
Prize snowballed to estimated $16M
The frenzy for this round mounted when nobody won the draw last Thursday (3 Feb), when the Group 1 prize was $1,568,402.
Similarly, no one took home the Group 1 prize of $4,024,761 on Monday (7 Feb).
This led the amount to snowball to an estimated $16 million – possibly the biggest in Singapore Pools’ history.
It’s certainly the highest amount offered in the Hongbao Draw since 2020, when the jackpot winner took home a massive $12 million from the FairPrice outlet at Bukit Batok MRT.
Snaking queues formed islandwide
Of course, given the unprecedented prize, Singaporeans formed snaking queues at various Singapore Pools outlets and authorised retailers
For example, the one near Boon Keng MRT saw a queue down the length of the public walkway.

With punters eagerly rushing to try their luck, all TOTO outlets extended their operating hours.
One man splurged $1,200 on more than 100 tickets, intending to spread the wealth to his friends and family.
2 CCK outlets sold winning tickets
Eventually, a number of outlets had the rub of the green this time round.
Notably, 2 were in Chua Chu Kang – 1 at Lot One mall and the other at a 7-Eleven branch in Chua Chu Kang Drive.
