Online Toto…so many ways to win. And on top of that, a ticket is just a few bucks. Even if you 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 will 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 within the 먹튀검증. Coincidentally, one of those I meet every day: Ellice (pronounced ‘Alice’) Kwong is really a housewife, with two children in JC. I run into her in the MRT station every morning, where she invariably comments on my having five of the same shirt. She tells me that:
“I unsure just how much I spend also. You may ask me also I don’t remember. Maybe $60 1 month. $20 for 4D, $40 for Toto. I do believe ought to be a lot more than a lot of people spend. But you know I got win numerous times! Four 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 do believe using the right system, it’s quite easy to win. I’ve won twice myself, once I won over $3000. I think as long while you know what you are actually doing, you don’t go and randomly tikam-tikam*, the odds are less bad since 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 being a short order cook. He tells me he spends: “At most $10 a month. Maybe less. I don’t really go with the mindset which i will win. It’s just for the excitement when I check the final results. 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 five years.
Aaron Siew is one of those friends I prefer to hate. He’s does typesetting for brochures and magazines. As he comes to steal borrow more DVDs, I ask about his Toto obsession: “I guess I spend about $20 per month. I promised that I will win Toto one or more times within 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 inside my life. I’ve never won ANY lucky draw or anything before.”
I asked if that wasn’t a good reason not to buy Toto. But he suggested I dip my head in a bucket 3 times and pull it all out twice, he then 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 a month, but some months I don’t buy at all. I don’t really comprehend the different systems, she (Louisa) will tell me how to colour the slots in. I won once, it had been several hundred dollars. So I split it with her and we had a big party at Pizza Hut, and my share was all gone next!”
