Big Sweep, 4D, Toto…so many different ways to win. And on top of that, a ticket is just a few dollars. Even though you have a snowball’s chance in a microwave, that small investment will be 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 article, I talk to some serious lottery players. Then I examine the numbers behind it.
I found some punters who state they have won it big within the lottery. Coincidentally, one of them I meet each morning: Ellice (pronounced ‘Alice’) Kwong is actually a housewife, with two children in JC. I run into her in the 4dresultsingapore.online each morning, where she invariably comments in my having five of the same shirt. She tells me that:
“I not sure exactly how much I spend also. You may ask me also I don’t remember. Maybe $60 one month. $20 for 4D, $40 for Toto. I believe should be more than a lot of people spend. However, you know I bought win a lot of times! 4 times already. If my luck is good just play lah.”
Dominic Wang is an additional 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 the right system, it’s quite easy to win. I’ve won twice myself, once I won over $3000. I think so long as you know what you really are doing, you don’t go and randomly tikam-tikam*, chances are much less bad as many people think.”
But the majority 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 per month. Maybe less. I don’t really choose the mindset that I will win. It’s only for the excitement after i look into the results. It’s a lot more like entertainment than an actual 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 one of those friends I love to hate. He’s does typesetting for brochures and magazines. While he comes to steal borrow more DVDs, I inquire about his Toto obsession: “I guess I spend about $20 a month. I promised 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 when it’s consolation prize, so long as I win at least one time 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 3 x and pull it 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) includes a bad effect on me. When she buys, I’ll buy. That’s about $20 monthly, however, many months I don’t buy at all. I don’t really comprehend the different systems, she (Louisa) will tell me the best way to colour the slots in. I won once, it absolutely was a few hundred dollars. And So I split it along with her and we enjoyed a big party at Pizza Hut, and my share was all gone after that!”
