Big Sweep, 4D, Toto…so many ways to win. And additionally, a ticket is only a few dollars. Even though you have a snowball’s chance in a microwave, that small investment will be worth the potential payoff right? Besides, you can find systems you can use to boost your odds. You will find whole books about this. In the following paragraphs, I talk to some serious lotto players. Then I check out the numbers behind it.
I came across some punters who state they have won it big within the lottery. Coincidentally, one of those I meet every day: Ellice (pronounced ‘Alice’) Kwong is actually a housewife, with two children in JC. I encounter her in the 4dresultsingapore.online every morning, where she invariably comments on my own having five of the same shirt. She tells me that:
“I not sure just how much I spend also. You may well ask me also I don’t remember. Maybe $60 1 month. $20 for 4D, $40 for Toto. I believe ought to be a lot more than many people spend. However, you know I bought win so many times! 4 times already. If my luck is nice just play lah.”
Dominic Wang is another serious punter. He’s a former house mover, who now deals in light fixtures. He says: “I spend around $50, maybe more. I believe using the right system, it’s quite possible to win. I’ve won twice myself, once I won over $3000. I believe as long as you know what you are doing, you don’t go and randomly tikam-tikam*, the odds are much less bad as most people think.”
But a lot of the lottery lovers I spoke too come with an entirely different experience:
Jerome Quok is really a Mass Communications student, who moonlights as a short order cook. He tells me he spends: “At most $10 monthly. Maybe less. I don’t really go with the mindset that I will win. It’s simply for the excitement once i check the results. It’s a lot more like entertainment than an actual investment. I only ever won once, and it also 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 enjoy hate. He’s does typesetting for brochures and magazines. When he comes up to steal borrow more DVDs, I find out about his Toto obsession: “I guess I spend about $20 a month. I promised that I will win Toto at least once inside my life. It’s a ‘must do before I die’ thing. I don’t care even if it’s consolation prize, as long as I win one or more times within my life. I’ve never won ANY lucky draw or anything before.”
I asked if this wasn’t a very good reason to not buy Toto. But he suggested I dip my head in a bucket 3 times and pull it out twice, he then left. I asked Jenna McCormick, who lives two floors below me. She’s a housewife, with one kcwrbm in Primary school.
“I think Louisa (her mother-in-law) includes a bad effect on me. When she buys, I’ll buy. That’s about $20 monthly, but some months I don’t buy in any way. I don’t really comprehend the different systems, she (Louisa) will tell me how you can colour the slots in. I won once, it absolutely was several hundred dollars. And So I split it together with her and we experienced a big party at Pizza Hut, and my share was all gone following that!”
