Short answer is yes.

Tough but not impossible. First let’s look at the probability of winning Toto.

For a group 1 prize, it is around 1 in 14 millions chance. To put it into perspective, every Singaporean would have to buy around 3 tickets (currently the population is around 5.3) and only 1 ticket is the winning ticket.

As small as the probability may seem, it is actually quite possible. In fact the odds of you being born which is around 1 in 400 quadrillion chance (http://what-are-odds-you) is much smaller than this. And time and time again, it has been proven that even with a very small probability some events still happen.

According to the ergodic hypothesis, given an infinite universe, every event with non-zero probability — however small — will eventually occur. Or put another way: given enough chances, even the most unlikely event is certain to happen.

Considering this, there are two draws per week and almost every week there will be a winner, there might be a rare case of no winners for the week but generally the prizes do not snowball for more than 2 weeks. If we give a very conservative estimation, there will be two new overnight millionaire in Singapore every month from lottery.

After digging around the internet for strategy in winning Toto, I discovered a few gurus who had given some advice — probably doesn’t work.

At the end of the day, (I think) there’re no real ways of figuring out how to win the lottery, it is purely luck. Yes, there might be some mathematical ways to improve your odds but the differences is negligible. It’s fun to buy it but do not pin all your hopes into it (like counting on it as a retirement plan). Having analysed all these, I really do think one day I will win the lottery. :)
