SINGAPORE — While the question of whether AI can replace human jobs remains debatable, a Singaporean recently found a novel way to embrace the technological advancements – by using ChatGPT to “tiok” (strike) TOTO.

Aaron Tan, a TikTok user, recently shared his experience of asking ChatGPT to generate seven numbers for him.

He prompted the AI bot with a query, “Please give me seven numbers from 1 to 49,” and ChatGPT responded with seven random numbers.

Aaron then purchased the numbers generated by ChatGPT to try his luck at winning the TOTO lottery on 4 May, which carried a grand prize of S$2,400,000.

To his surprise, three out of the seven numbers he purchased matched the grand prize!

When asked by another TikTok user how much he had won, Aaron Tan replied that he had won $50 from the lottery.

Another TikTok user joked that perhaps even the lottery company was also using ChatGPT to generate winning numbers.
