Magnum 4D is a game of chance where odds are heavily stacked against you. It is very insidious in that you can easily spend RM 3,000 in a single week for three draws without even realizing how ludicrous it is to go for such long (and desperate odds).
I must admit, I spent close to RM 1,000 on the last two draws (Sunday and special draw Tuesday). I usually bet RM 50 for each number coz anything less would just be sad considering the amount I’ve lost. You don’t even feel the cash drain unlike in casinos coz of the high jackpot prizes. I would describe it as life changing even – imagine putting RM 50 on Small for two numbers that came out in the top three.
You’ll be raking in:
RM 175,000 for the first prize
RM 100,000 for the second prize
in addition to the jackpot which is usually around RM 12,000,000.
12 million is is a life changing amount, which is what draws people in. Hell, even winning ONE prize without jackpot would more than cover my losses.
However, after a week of this I decided it was unwise and spread my bets – RM 20 Small for each number. It still ran up RM 400+ each draw despite getting only 13 numbers coz of the Jackpot option, which will rack up RM 156 for 78 possible pairs in addition to the 13 x RM 20.
I didn’t get any for today (you can purchase in advance during the weekends) and I’m glad coz none of my numbers came out. Oh, and photo taken using the Sony Cyber-shot TX-5.
NO MORE GAMBLING. Not even 4D. Hmph!
