Online Toto…so many ways to win. And on top of that, a ticket is just some dollars. Even for those who 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 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.
Winning Punters – I found some punters who claim to have won it big inside the 먹튀. Coincidentally, one of them I meet every day: Ellice (pronounced ‘Alice’) Kwong is a housewife, with two children in JC. I run into her at the MRT station each morning, where she invariably comments in my having five of the same shirt. She tells me that:
“I unsure exactly how much I spend also. You ask me also I don’t remember. Maybe $60 1 month. $20 for 4D, $40 for Toto. I think ought to be a lot more than a lot of people spend. But you know I purchased win numerous times! 4 times 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 light fixtures. He says: “I spend around $50, maybe more. I believe with all the right system, it’s quite easy to win. I’ve won twice myself, once I won over $3000. I think as long as you know what you are actually doing, you don’t go and randomly tikam-tikam*, the odds are less bad as many people think.”
Not-so-Lucky Punters – But the majority of the lottery lovers I spoke too come with an entirely different experience:
Jerome Quok is a Mass Communications student, who moonlights as being a short order cook. He tells me he spends: “At most $10 monthly. Maybe less. I don’t really opt for the mindset which i will win. It’s just for that excitement when I check the outcomes. It’s more like entertainment than a genuine 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 5 years.
Aaron Siew is one of those friends I prefer to hate. He’s does typesetting for brochures and magazines. As he comes over to steal borrow more DVDs, I find out about his Toto obsession: “I guess I spend about $20 monthly. 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 if it’s consolation prize, so long when i muncjo at least one time within 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 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) includes a bad effect on me. When she buys, I’ll buy. That’s about $20 monthly, however some months I don’t buy whatsoever. I don’t really comprehend the different systems, she (Louisa) will tell me how you can colour the slots in. I won once, it absolutely was a few hundred dollars. Therefore I split it together with her so we enjoyed a big party at Pizza Hut, and my share was all gone after that!”
