Persistence paid off big time for this?renovation handyman in Malaysia.

After buying his?bosses' car plate numbers for years,?the 60-year-old?finally struck the jackpot —?a whopping?RM10.6 million (S$3 million),?The New Straits Times (NST) reported on Tuesday (June 4).

He bought a System 4 ticket and won RM10,627,969.15, along with an additional RM672 as System Play bonus from the Toto 4D Jackpot 1 on May 26.

"The bosses drive nice European cars to work," said the handyman, who is from Penang.?"This made us all envious and we all dreamt of driving one too.

"So I started betting on their car registration numbers —?9114 and 2230 —?for many years. That was how I won the jackpot."

Well, with his winnings, which he recently collected from Sports Toto Malaysia?Lottery in Kuala Lumpur, owning a luxury car is no longer just a dream.

So what will he do with his winnings?

Take it easy, he said, adding that?he was content knowing that he has become a multi-millionaire and that it is time to "enjoy life" with his family.
