The 6/49 super lotto draw last night was awaited by a lot of people especially those who have placed their bets on their lucky numbers. The jackpot has gone up to P239M and unfortunately for them there was no winner. Lucky for those who have yet to place their bets since they have another chance for the next draw ( including me :) ).
This was our topic during our breakfast this morning so we decided to join the lotto fever. We agreed that we'll bet using the system 9 wherein we'll choose 9 numbers and we'll have the chance for all the possible combination using those 9 numbers. Our lead for the project emailed almost everybody within our department and everybody was excited to join. Each one gave their lucky numbers and ended up with about 11 numbers. So, we ended up generating the 9 numbers using their own system. When our lead emailed our 9 numbers, they were asking how we've come up with the numbers and what happened to their lucky numbers. We told them that we just used the system generated numbers so as not have difficulty on choosing among the numbers given by the participants. Funny thing is none of the lucky numbers given by the participants was generated. he he he . . .
Then, somebody from the group dared to bet using the system 11 since we have the numbers already. This would cost us another P440 if the same number of people will bet. We've made our computations and agreed to proceed with the bet with just about P200 per head so we need a total of 50 persons for this round. But this also means that our winnings will be down to about P4.7M each. ha ha ha . . . Of course, since we are in Finance everybody was fast in computing for their winnings.
The lotto fever spread all throughout the organization and other departments (HR, IT, Purchasing and MPL ) joined as well. Even our former officemates were able to join. Thanks to the advanced technology nowadays. The 50 slots were complete at around 4pm I guess. Some joined with high hopes that they'll win. Some joined not even knowing how it works. Some joined for the heck of just joining. Some joined with a lot of plans already for their winnings, if ever. We are all happy and excited!
What if we win? What will happen to Ford Philippines if everybody will resign from their posts? Everybody will be happy but not the Ford management. ha ha ha . . . On the other hand, we can lend our winnings to Ford and be a stakeholder since we are actually on the process of securing a loan from a local bank. he he he . . .
Good luck to all of us! ! !
