Big Sweep, 4D, Toto…so many different ways to win. And additionally, a ticket is simply a few dollars. Even if you have a snowball’s chance in a microwave, that small investment is worth the potential payoff right? Besides, you will find systems you can use to improve your odds. There are whole books about it. In the following paragraphs, I speak to some serious lottery players. Then I examine the numbers behind it.
Winning Punters – I discovered some punters who claim to have won it big inside the lottery. Coincidentally, one of them I meet every day: Ellice (pronounced ‘Alice’) Kwong is a housewife, with two children in JC. I run into her on the 먹튀검증 every morning, where she invariably comments in my having five of the same shirt. She tells me that:
“I uncertain exactly how much I spend also. You may ask me also I don’t remember. Maybe $60 1 month. $20 for 4D, $40 for Toto. I believe ought to be greater than most people spend. However you know I got win a lot of times! 4x already. If my luck is nice just play lah.”
Dominic Wang is an additional serious punter. He’s a former house mover, who now deals in light fixtures. He says: “I spend around $50, maybe more. I believe with all the right system, it’s quite possible to win. I’ve won twice myself, once I won over $3000. I think providing you know what you are doing, you don’t go and randomly tikam-tikam*, the odds are much less bad as most people think.”
Not-so-Lucky Punters – But most of the lottery lovers I spoke too have an entirely different experience:
Jerome Quok is a Mass Communications student, who moonlights as a short order cook. He tells me he spends: “At most $10 a month. Maybe less. I don’t really choose the mindset that I will win. It’s simply for the excitement after i look into the results. It’s a lot more like entertainment than an actual investment. I only ever won once, and it was something pathetic. Less than $100.”
I said “it’s still money,” but Jerome said the win was after playing regularly for four or five years.
Aaron Siew is one of those friends I prefer to hate. He’s does typesetting for brochures and magazines. When he comes over to steal borrow more DVDs, I ask about his Toto obsession: “I guess I spend about $20 monthly. I promised that I will win Toto at least one time within my life. It’s a ‘must do before I die’ thing. I don’t care even though it’s consolation prize, so vmxopy because i win at least one time inside my life. I’ve never won ANY lucky draw or anything before.”
I asked if that wasn’t a good reason never to buy Toto. But he suggested I dip my head in a bucket 3 times and pull it twice, he then left. I asked Jenna McCormick, who lives two floors below me. She’s a housewife, with one child in Primary school.
“I think Louisa (her mother-in-law) includes a bad impact on me. When she buys, I’ll buy. That’s about $20 monthly, but some months I don’t buy whatsoever. I don’t really be aware of the different systems, she (Louisa) will inform me the best way to colour the slots in. I won once, it absolutely was several hundred dollars. And So I split it with her and we had a big party at Pizza Hut, and my share was all gone next!”
