Singapore – Two lucky risk-takers hit the jackpot and won about S$13.6 million in the Toto Hongbao draw on February 22 (Friday). Both tickets were QuickPick ordinary entry tickets, and both came from Yishun, one from the Northpoint City’s Cold Storage outlet in Yishun Avenue 2 and the other from the outlet at Sheng Siong at Junction 9 in Yishun Avenue 9.

The S$13.6 million draw, which was one of the highest in Toto pools’ recent history, came close to the record of S$13.9 million for the Toto Hongbao draw in the 2016 edition. Two punters belonging to Group 1 will be taking home around S$6.8 million each after no one won the draw on February 18.

In 2018, the S$12 million prize was taken home by two lucky punters while four entries won the S$3 million draw in 2017.

With both tickets being purchased from Yishun, it might as well be added to the list of “lucky spots” that punters go to such as Ng Teo Guan Self Service outlet in Ubi and the NTUC FairPrice Serangoon Central Hypermart outlet at Nex shopping mall. An outlet is coined to be lucky based on its frequency in producing winning tickets.
