Big Sweep, 4D, Toto…so many ways to win. And additionally, a ticket is simply a few dollars. Even though you have a snowball’s chance in a microwave, that small investment may be worth the potential payoff right? Besides, you will find systems you can use to enhance your odds. There are whole books about it. In this post, 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 inside the lottery. Coincidentally, one of these I meet every day: Ellice (pronounced ‘Alice’) Kwong is actually a housewife, with two children in JC. I run into her at the 토토사이트 every morning, where she invariably comments on my own having five the exact same shirt. She tells me that:
“I unsure just how much I spend also. You may well ask me also I don’t remember. Maybe $60 30 days. $20 for 4D, $40 for Toto. I do believe needs to be greater than many people spend. However you know I bought win so many times! 4x already. If my luck is nice 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 think with the right system, it’s quite easy 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 not as bad since many people think.”
Not-so-Lucky Punters – But a lot of the lottery lovers I spoke too provide an entirely different experience:
Jerome Quok is actually 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 opt for the mindset i will win. It’s only for the excitement after i look at the results. It’s more like entertainment than a real investment. I only ever won once, and it also was something pathetic. Lower 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 prefer to hate. He’s does typesetting for brochures and magazines. While he comes 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 once in 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 once inside my life. I’ve never won ANY lucky draw or anything before.”
I asked if this wasn’t a good reason to not buy Toto. But he suggested I dip my head in a bucket 3 x 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) has a bad effect on me. When she buys, I’ll buy. That’s about $20 per month, but some months I don’t buy at all. I don’t really understand the different systems, she (Louisa) will inform me how you can colour the slots in. I won once, it absolutely was a couple of hundred dollars. So I split it with her and we enjoyed a big party at Pizza Hut, and my share was all gone following that!”
