A MALAYSIAN maid working in Hong Kong has reportedly won over HK$30mil (RM12mil) in a local lottery, China Press reported.
The middle-aged woman is a helper at the mansion of Angela Leong, the fourth wife of casino tycoon Stanley Ho, known as the “King of Gambling”.
The woman bought a Mark Six ticket (lottery organised by the Hong Kong Jockey Club) on her birthday, as suggested by her employer’s family, said the paper.
A member of the Ho family confirmed the news to Hong Kong newspaperApple Daily.
Angela, however, denied this.
“We have a few Malaysian workers ... but I have not heard anyone of them winning the first prize.”
It was learnt the maid has been working at the mansion for over 10 years and has reportedly said she would continue to work as a maid there.
This was because she did not want to part with Angela’s eldest daughter, Sabrina Ho Chiu-ying, whom the Malaysian had cared for since she was a little girl.
