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 the following paragraphs, 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 within the 먹튀검증. Coincidentally, one of them I meet every morning: Ellice (pronounced ‘Alice’) Kwong is really a housewife, with two children in JC. I come across her on the MRT station each morning, where she invariably comments in my having five the exact same shirt. She tells me that:
“I not sure exactly how much I spend also. You ask me also I don’t remember. Maybe $60 30 days. $20 for 4D, $40 for Toto. I do believe should be a lot more than a lot of people spend. However, you know I got win a lot of times! 4 times already. If my luck is good 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 using the right system, it’s quite possible to win. I’ve won twice myself, once I won over $3000. I think as long while you know what you really are doing, you don’t go and randomly tikam-tikam*, the odds are less bad as most people think.”
Not-so-Lucky Punters – But the majority of the lottery lovers I spoke too provide 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 go with the mindset i will win. It’s just for your excitement once 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 just one of those friends I prefer to hate. He’s does typesetting for brochures and magazines. As he comes up to steal borrow more DVDs, I ask about his Toto obsession: “I guess I spend about $20 monthly. I promised 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 one or more times inside my life. I’ve never won ANY lucky draw or anything before.”
I asked if this wasn’t a very good reason never to 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) has a bad impact on me. When she buys, I’ll buy. That’s about $20 a month, however some months I don’t buy in any way. I don’t really understand the different systems, she (Louisa) will inform me how to colour the slots in. I won once, it absolutely was several hundred dollars. So I split it together with her so we enjoyed a big party at Pizza Hut, and my share was all gone after that!”
