Big Sweep, 4D, Toto…so many ways to win. And in addition to that, a ticket is simply a few dollars. Even if you have a snowball’s chance in a microwave, that small investment will 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 article, I talk to some serious lottery players. Then I check out the numbers behind it.
I found some punters who claim to have won it big within 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 in the 4dresultsingapore.online each morning, where she invariably comments on my own having five of the same shirt. She tells me that:
“I not sure exactly 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 needs to be more than most people spend. However, you know I purchased win numerous times! Four times already. If my luck is nice 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 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 really are doing, you don’t go and randomly tikam-tikam*, chances are less bad since many people think.”
But a lot of the lottery lovers I spoke too have 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 which i will win. It’s simply for the excitement after i check the results. It’s more like entertainment than a real investment. I only ever won once, and it 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 among those friends I love to hate. He’s does typesetting for brochures and magazines. While he comes over to steal borrow more DVDs, I find out about his Toto obsession: “I guess I spend about $20 a month. I promised which i will win Toto one or more times in my life. It’s a ‘must do before I die’ thing. I don’t care even if it’s consolation prize, so long as I win one or more times inside my life. I’ve never won ANY lucky draw or anything before.”
I asked in the event that wasn’t a good reason to not buy Toto. But he suggested I dip my head in a bucket three times and pull it twice, he then 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) features a bad effect on me. When she buys, I’ll buy. That’s about $20 monthly, however, many months I don’t buy in any way. 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 was a few hundred dollars. So I split it with her and that we had a big party at Pizza Hut, and my share was all gone after that!”
