Big Sweep, 4D, Toto…so many different ways to win. And on top of that, 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 improve 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 discovered some punters who claim to have won it big in the lottery. Coincidentally, one of them I meet every morning: Ellice (pronounced ‘Alice’) Kwong is actually a housewife, with two children in JC. I come across her at the 토토사이트 every day, where she invariably comments on my own having five the exact same shirt. She tells me that:
“I not sure how much I spend also. You ask me also I don’t remember. Maybe $60 one month. $20 for 4D, $40 for Toto. I do believe should be more than a lot of people spend. But you know I got win so many times! 4 times already. If my luck is great just play lah.”
Dominic Wang is an additional 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 all 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*, chances are less bad as most people think.”
Not-so-Lucky Punters – But a lot of the lottery lovers I spoke too have an entirely different experience:
Jerome Quok is actually a Mass Communications student, who moonlights as being 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 just for the excitement once i look at the results. It’s a lot more like entertainment than a real investment. I only ever won once, and it 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 enjoy hate. He’s does typesetting for brochures and magazines. As he comes up to steal borrow more DVDs, I ask about his Toto obsession: “I guess I spend about $20 a month. I promised 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, so vmxopy because 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 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 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, however, many 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 had been a few hundred dollars. So I split it along with her and that we enjoyed a big party at Pizza Hut, and my share was all gone after that!”
