|DOLPHY WILL BE MISSED BY MANY(Photo courtesy of mintscreen.com)|
Since news of his death last July 10, 2012, many lotto bettors were betting the EZ2 2-Digit and Swertres 3-Digit games (both of which have 3 draws a day: 11am, 4pm and 9pm)that are a combination of important numbers in Dolphy's life.
The lotto bettings reached CRITICAL MASS (or near fanaticism) when on 3 draw days, DOLPHY NUMBERS CAME OUT IN THE DRAW RESULTS:
8-3-4 Swertres Dolphy died at exactly 8:34pm July 10, 2012
3-8 EZ2 Dolphy was aged 83 years old when he passed away
25-7 EZ2 Dolphy's Birthday is July 25.
An example of the typical lotto bet combinations last July 15, 2012, Sunday which happened to be also his Internment:
10-15 Dates of Death and Burial
7-25 (Winning combo if you betted EZ2 Ramble 25-7)
10-25 Date of death and birth
8-3-4 and all its permutations (4-3-8, 3-4-8 etc; winning combo if you better
Swertres Straight & Ramble; Pays P4,500 per P10 of 3Digit Straight or
P750 per P10 if 3Digit Ramble)
People were getting frustrated when as early as 11am I was already telling my lotto bettors that any lotto bet combination that has something to do with Dolphy (the Dolphy bets) is probably SOLD OUT ALREADY.
And for those who saw that his time of death (8-3-4), age (3-8) or his birthday (25-7) came out as winning combinations which meant many Filipino lotto bettors won, my lotto bettors said THIS IS DOLPHY'S WAY OF GIVING BACK TO THEM.
