"I was expecting more, but… [laughing] it’s still an amazing amount!" S. said when a representative from theLotter called to inform him about his win.

S., who says he is employed as an engineer in Singapore, had already learned his ticket was a winner earlier that afternoon. "I just saw the numbers actually, so I thought I had something, but then I checked and then I found 'Oh, yes', I did win, 4+1 not 5+1, anyhow it's ok!"

Veteran Player Wins Big

S. has been playing the lottery with theLotter since 2009, a true enthusiast of the game! He has had many lottery wins in the past but quite obviously, this was his biggest one yet.

"I tried to find out which is the best way [to play world lotteries], so I found theLotter is doing that kind of service, buying tickets for the customers when playing outside the countries where they are, so that is how I started actually," he told us.

How did S. select his winning numbers?

S. said he always buys single entry tickets, mostly for the top American and European lotteries, especially when there are big jackpots. He said that he had selected a set of numbers for Powerball and played them for three straight weeks.

"You can imagine something, then maybe your imagination will come true," S. said of his big win.
