Big Sweep, 4D, Toto…so many ways to win. And in addition to that, a ticket is simply a few dollars. Even though you have a snowball’s chance in a microwave, that small investment is worth the possible payoff right? Besides, there are systems you can use to improve your odds. You can find whole books about it. In this post, I talk to some serious lottery players. Then I check out the numbers behind it.
I came across some punters who state they have won it big inside the lottery. Coincidentally, one of them I meet every day: Ellice (pronounced ‘Alice’) Kwong is actually a housewife, with two children in JC. I run into her at the 4dresultsingapore.online every morning, where she invariably comments on my having five of the identical shirt. She tells me that:
“I uncertain how much I spend also. You ask me also I don’t remember. Maybe $60 30 days. $20 for 4D, $40 for Toto. I think ought to be greater than many people spend. But you know I got win so many times! 4 times already. If my luck is good just play lah.”
Dominic Wang is another serious punter. He’s a former house mover, who now deals in lighting fixtures. He says: “I spend around $50, maybe more. I think 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 actually doing, you don’t go and randomly tikam-tikam*, the odds are much less bad as many people think.”
But a lot of the lottery lovers I spoke too provide 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 opt for the mindset i will win. It’s only for the excitement once i look at the results. It’s more like entertainment than a real 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 love to hate. He’s does typesetting for brochures and magazines. While he comes up to steal borrow more DVDs, I inquire about his Toto obsession: “I guess I spend about $20 per month. I promised which i will win Toto one or more times inside my life. It’s a ‘must do before I die’ thing. I don’t care even when it’s consolation prize, so long as I win one or more times in my life. I’ve never won ANY lucky draw or anything before.”
I asked if that wasn’t a very good reason not to buy Toto. But he suggested I dip my head in a bucket three times and pull it all out twice, then he 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) has a bad influence on me. When she buys, I’ll buy. That’s about $20 monthly, however, many months I don’t buy whatsoever. I don’t really understand 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 along with her and we had a big party at Pizza Hut, and my share was all gone next!”
