Big Sweep, 4D, Toto…so many ways to win. And in addition to that, a ticket is just a few dollars. Even when you have a snowball’s chance in a microwave, that small investment is worth the potential payoff right? Besides, there are systems you can use to enhance your odds. You will find whole books about it. In this article, I talk to some serious lottery players. Then I examine the numbers behind it.
Winning Punters – I found some punters who state they have won it big in the lottery. Coincidentally, one of them I meet every morning: Ellice (pronounced ‘Alice’) Kwong is really a housewife, with two children in JC. I encounter her at the 먹튀 every morning, where she invariably comments on my own having five of the same shirt. She tells me that:
“I not sure how much I spend also. You may well ask me also I don’t remember. Maybe $60 one month. $20 for 4D, $40 for Toto. I do believe ought to be a lot more than most people spend. However, you know I bought win numerous times! 4x 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 do believe with all the right system, it’s quite easy to win. I’ve won twice myself, once I won over $3000. I think providing you know what you are actually doing, you don’t go and randomly tikam-tikam*, chances are not as bad as many people think.”
Not-so-Lucky Punters – But most 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 per month. Maybe less. I don’t really choose the mindset that I will win. It’s simply for the excitement after i look at the results. It’s similar to entertainment than a real investment. I only ever won once, and it was something pathetic. Under $100.”
I said “it’s still money,” but Jerome said the win was after playing regularly for four or five-years.
Aaron Siew is just one of those friends I enjoy hate. He’s does typesetting for brochures and magazines. While he comes over 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 at least one time in my life. It’s a ‘must do before I die’ thing. I don’t care even if it’s consolation prize, so vmxopy when i win at least once 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 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 child in Primary school.
“I think Louisa (her mother-in-law) features a bad influence on me. When she buys, I’ll buy. That’s about $20 monthly, however some months I don’t buy at all. I don’t really be aware of the different systems, she (Louisa) will tell me the best way to colour the slots in. I won once, it had been a couple of hundred dollars. So I split it with her and that we had a big party at Pizza Hut, and my share was all gone following that!”
