Big Sweep, 4D, Toto…so many ways to win. And on top of that, a ticket is only 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 boost your odds. There are whole books about it. In this article, I speak with some serious lottery players. Then I examine the numbers behind it.
Winning Punters – I came across some punters who state they have won it big within the lottery. Coincidentally, one of them I meet every day: Ellice (pronounced ‘Alice’) Kwong is a housewife, with two children in JC. I encounter her on the 먹튀검증 each morning, where she invariably comments on my having five the exact 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 1 month. $20 for 4D, $40 for Toto. I do believe ought to be a lot more than many people spend. However, you know I bought win numerous times! 4x already. If my luck is good just play lah.”
Dominic Wang is yet another serious punter. He’s a former house mover, who now deals in lighting fixtures. He says: “I spend around $50, maybe more. I believe with the right system, it’s quite easy to win. I’ve won twice myself, once I won over $3000. I believe so long as you know what you really are doing, you don’t go and randomly tikam-tikam*, the odds are not as bad since many 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 monthly. Maybe less. I don’t really go with the mindset i will win. It’s simply for the excitement once i look into the results. It’s similar to entertainment than a real 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 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 ask about his Toto obsession: “I guess I spend about $20 per month. I promised i will win Toto at least one time inside my life. It’s a ‘must do before I die’ thing. I don’t care even when it’s consolation prize, so vmxopy as I win at least once in my life. I’ve never won ANY lucky draw or anything before.”
I asked in the event 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) features a bad impact 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 comprehend 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. So I split it along with her and we enjoyed a big party at Pizza Hut, and my share was all gone after that!”
