Every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday evening, there will be crowds of people at 4D outlets. And I noticed, on Monday, Thursday and Sunday morning, the first page most readers landed on is the 4D result page. Always heard they say 'kena makan' (been eaten) but still they will try again and again.
I myself bought a few times 4D, but so far only strike once, consolation price. Not enough to cover my small investment.
I think many invest in 4D even though they know it is very slim chance to get a strike because:
1) small investment but huge return - Just slightly more than RM1 for a bet and one could win thousands of ringgit;
2) consider as long term investment - They believe that, one day they will win back their investment
3) wish to become a millionaire overnight - Although the chances are very slim, but there are real cases every week where one turned into a millionaire overnight because of 4D
Also, when one started to buy 4D, he/she always cannot stop from investing because he/she worried that their numbers might strike the first price the next morning. I have heard people said they they'll get heart attack if they stop investing in 4D and their number appear as first price.
Do you invest in 4D? Or what is your opinion in 4D investing?
