Big Sweep 大彩
Big Sweep is a national lottery managed and promoted by Pan Malaysian Sweeps Sdn Bhd (PMS). Big Sweep is the only operation of its kind in Malaysia. It is an off-line operation of a game of chance whereby a series of tickets are pre-printed for sales to the public. Each of these tickets carries a unique set of pre-printed 7-digit numbers and a Jackpot number. It also features an instant “Scratch and Match” game where it is based on pre-determined combinations of 4-digit numbers.
Apart from the 7-digit numbers, the draw-date for a particular series of tickets is also printed on each of the tickets. On the draw-date, winning tickets are drawn in front of the public at the selected Turf Club of Malaysia. The results of these winning tickets drawn are then relayed to all major dailies for publication on the following day.
Big Sweep tickets are sold to the public through PMS authorized selling agents and runners, various eating places and appointed shops throughout the country. Seven million tickets are available for sale each draw with numbers ranging from 1000000 to 7999999. Each ticket is priced at RM3.00, inclusive of Gaming tax.
