Online Toto…so many different 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 post, 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 really a housewife, with two children in JC. I run into her on the MRT station every morning, 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 may well ask me also I don’t remember. Maybe $60 1 month. $20 for 4D, $40 for Toto. I do believe should be greater than a lot of people spend. However, you know I bought win so many times! 4x already. If my luck is great 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 the right system, it’s quite possible to win. I’ve won twice myself, once I won over $3000. I do believe as long while you know what you are actually doing, you don’t go and randomly tikam-tikam*, the odds are much less bad since many people think.”
Not-so-Lucky Punters – But the majority of the lottery lovers I spoke too provide 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 per month. Maybe less. I don’t really opt for the mindset that I will win. It’s just for your excitement once i check the outcomes. It’s more like entertainment than an actual investment. I only ever won once, plus it was something pathetic. Under $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 love to hate. He’s does typesetting for brochures and magazines. While he comes up to steal borrow more DVDs, I inquire about his Toto obsession: “I guess I spend about $20 monthly. 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 once in my life. I’ve never won ANY lucky draw or anything before.”
I asked if that wasn’t a very good reason never 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 child in Primary school.
“I think Louisa (her mother-in-law) features a bad impact on me. When she buys, I’ll buy. That’s about $20 a month, but some months I don’t buy in any way. I don’t really understand the different systems, she (Louisa) will tell me how you can colour the slots in. I won once, it absolutely was a couple of hundred dollars. So I split it with her and we experienced a big party at Pizza Hut, and my share was all gone after that!”
