POLY STUDENT SPENT $500 ON TOTO, DREAMS OF HITTING GROUP ONE

A student who is currently at year 3 of his polytechnic studies shared a story with us here over at SG Uncensored on his sudden rash decision to purchase $500 worth of Ordinary Quickpick Toto Tickets on the Ang Bao draw that is happening today (11 Feb) in the evening.

The Ang Bao draw boasts a prize pool of $16 million for Group 1 winners and is by far the draw with the biggest prize pool in the history of Singapore Pools.

Here is the story as accounted by the student

“Hello I would like to share about a rash decision that I have made today.

I am currently at the internship phase of my Polytechnic education and have saved up some money from my internship allowance.

Today, as I have ended work earlier, I walked passed a Singapore Pools outlet near my home which is quite popular with people and have produced quite a lot of Group 1 winning tickets before.

The queue was horrendously long and it had been this way for the past few days even in the early morning.

The line formed from the shop to the carpark at the back and almost reach another carpark.

It was at least a few hundred metres long.

I decided to go and queue up as well to join in the fun as I saw a friend in the queue nearing the shop’s entrance and he asked me to join him.

I also thought that maybe I can try my luck because after all you know what they say ‘有买有希望’. (translates to there is a hope to strike if you buy).

While in the queue, I thought to myself on how much I should buy, ‘should I buy just $2 quick pick for fun or should I buy $10.’

Then I suddenly had this epiphany out of nowhere that I will be walking to the Singapore Pools Main Branch on Monday with my Group 1 winning ticket to claim my millions of dollars.

As I thought and thought more, I reached the counter and I told the aunty at the counter to give me $500 quick pick.

The aunty looked astonished by my request but quietly keyed in my bets for me.

I paid my $500 and left the outlet.

Now I am at home and thinking back I regret rashly spending $500 just like this.

I don’t hope to win the top prize but I now hope that every entry which I have purchased can just let me strike three numbers to make $10 so that I can make 10 times of my bet amount of $500 back and collect $5,000.”
