Magnum 4D has a feature called CASCADING which started on December 30, 2018. Once the first grand prize goes over RM20 million, the prize pool will flow into the second prize. And yes, there was someone won a second prize within this period.
A Magnum player, known as Tan, walked away with a few hundred grand more for hitting Jackpot 2 lately.
“I placed partial bets and won Jackpot 2 with a few hundred thousand extra cascaded from the Jackpot 1 prize.
“I hope nobody wins the Jackpot 1 this weekend so that Jackpot 2 will continue to grow bigger and the CASCADING can go on for a longer period,” he admitted.
When the jackpot was yet to be won, a punter surnamed Lim hoped that she would be the winner.
“If I win, I’ll place the amount in a fixed deposit and earn an extra RM1 million interest every year,” she said.
The RM33.8 million was the biggest 4D Jackpot in Magnum history but the amount was only half of the highest jackpot in Malaysia. According to The Sun Daily, a Penang businessman won RM69.6 million from Sports Toto with only RM50 in September 2017.
