The previous record holder was Chinese number 8888 8888, which sold for ?Ã‡Â¬Â£270,000. The Cantonese word for eight sounds very similar to the word for rich. It was bought by Sichuan Airlines.
The auction started at a million riyals and interest quickly narrowed from eight bidders to just two, according to Kuwaiti News Agency (KUNA).
