Online Toto…so many different ways to win. And on top of that, a ticket is just a few 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 state they 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 come across her on the MRT station every day, 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 ask me also I don’t remember. Maybe $60 1 month. $20 for 4D, $40 for Toto. I believe ought to be greater than many people spend. But you know I got win so many times! 4x 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 think using the right system, it’s quite possible to win. I’ve won twice myself, once I won over $3000. I believe as long when you know what you are doing, you don’t go and randomly tikam-tikam*, chances are much less bad as many people think.”
Not-so-Lucky Punters – But most 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 per month. Maybe less. I don’t really choose the mindset that I will win. It’s just for your excitement after i check the final results. It’s more like entertainment than a genuine investment. I only ever won once, plus 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 just one of those friends I enjoy hate. He’s does typesetting for brochures and magazines. As he comes up to steal borrow more DVDs, I find out about his Toto obsession: “I guess I spend about $20 a month. I promised i will win Toto at least one time within 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 muncjo one or more times 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 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) features a bad effect on me. When she buys, I’ll buy. That’s about $20 monthly, however, many months I don’t buy whatsoever. I don’t really be aware of the different systems, she (Louisa) will tell me how you can colour the slots in. I won once, it had been a few hundred dollars. And So I split it along with her and we experienced a big party at Pizza Hut, and my share was all gone following that!”
