First off, I’ll be honest with you—I have never won a big lottery prize. The closest I’ve ever got was a paltry $60 in the Singapore Pools Toto Hongbao Draw. I wish I could teach you how to predict lottery numbers or write a manual on how to strike 4D. I wish I could assure you that anybody who is determined enough can master the secret to striking Toto. Unfortunately, there are some things even Lady HengHeng cannot do. However, just because I have never struck 4D or Toto doesn’t mean that you never will, or indeed that I will never have the chance to.
Based on the experiences of friends and friends-of-friends who have won lottery prizes, I believe there may be a metaphysical link to some people’s lottery wins. For instance, often an incident occurs in these people’s lives (eg. witnessing or being involved in a traffic accident) that grants them access to winning lottery numbers.
Unfortunately, this also means that lottery wins are to some extent subject to the whims of fate. Therefore, if you’re fated never to strike Toto or 4D, you may just never receive any of these hints from the powers that be.
The good news is that some of us will have chances to get our hands on the winning numbers. That’s why it is so important to be alert to the signals the universe sends us. Buying a lottery ticket will only cost you a few dollars—not buying one may cost much more. For every person who gets a funny feeling about 4 special digits and buys them on a hunch, there are 10 people who witnessed that traffic accident but didn’t bother buying the winning license plate number.
While I have to date not been lucky (or alert) enough to receive winning lottery numbers, I have heard several first hand accounts of people who have. Hopefully we can learn from their successes, hone our own observation skills and sixth senses and someday rise like a phoenix from the ashes of losing lottery tickets.
1. A particular friend of a friend has gained a bit of a reputation for having fantastic luck in 4D, having won quite a few prizes. He is reportedly a devout Taoist and prays regularly. One night a couple of years back, he dreamt of four spears whistling past in the night. The next day he bought the 4D numbers 1111 and won second prize.
Moral of the story: Be mindful of any numbers or numerical patterns that may appear in your dreams. Even in the absence of explicit numbers, pay attention to dream symbols or motifs which can be interpreted numerically. Be creative in your interpretations. Have pen and paper on hand to take down any important information before you roll over and go back to sleep.
2. The father of a friend’s boyfriend, who had never bought a single lottery ticket in his life, got a sudden and inexplicable feeling that his son’s license plate number would strike 4D. So for the first time in his life he bought $50 big and $50 small, winning a cool $25,000.
Moral of the story: Listen to your sixth sense. If a certain set of numbers (may come from anywhere: license plates, house unit numbers, telephone numbers, I/C numbers, etc) seems to trigger your intuition, it could well be the universe’s way of giving you a nudge.
3. My friend’s car was involved in a minor collision with another vehicle. She promptly bought the license plate numbers of both cars, one of which won a big 4D prize.
Moral of the story: Events or encounters which would normally not have happened may come pegged with winning numbers. Take note of highly coincidental or unexpected events such as accidents or significant chance meetings.
Note: Those who live in Singapore and have the luxury of playing both Singapore Pools Toto (similar to Lotto in many countries; first prize involves picking 6 winning numbers out of 45) and 4D (first prize involves picking 4 winning digits in the correct order) should be aware that in general (okay I cannot actually substantiate this but then I have never heard of anyone receiving 6 Toto numbers from 1-45). Many people just buy Quickpick for Toto anyway. However, if ever you suspect you may have Toto numbers on hand, don’t let the opportunity pass you by.
