Is a single Thai lottery ticket sold 100 bahts with a maximum of 6 millions to win?

Recommended Posts

Yesterday, every Thai people in Isaan, Sisaket, in a very small village, were buying single tickets for 100 bahts a piece and saying the maximum winning was 6 millions?

I thought a ticket was 40 bahts and they were all sold by pair of 2? For a total of 80.

Have I missed a news or something?

Any explanation?

Maybe one of the unofficial/illegal lotteries? Or some sellers hiking the price of the government lottery?

 

Normal government lottery is now 80 baht, for single ticket, the old system of pairs of tickets finished. Top prize printed on the back of the ticket is 6M Baht.

80 baht is the gov price and it's printed on the ticket. The lottery vendors are doing what they did years.. adding profit.

If a non-Thai won a Thai lottery, how well would that work out for the non-Thai? Seems like there might be a strong possibility of various hazards and unofficial repercussions....

Glad you mentioned it thought I was being done 2 sellers outside Tesco CM  picked a random ticket and she said 100 b I said no 80b she snapped 100b so I took 100b back gave her the ticket back and went to the other seller who had some for 100b and a few for 80b bought one for 80b and left confused as to why 2 prices for same looking tickets?

A Myanmar woman won two weeks ago in Songkla. No problem. She reported her win to the police in order to prevent such "hazards".

if you really have a problem with it you can threaten to report them to law enforcement... The government has stated on several occasions tickets must be sold at 80 baht. Vendors are asking for 100 Baht due to barely making any money selling at 80 baht. Also vendors will try to charge you more for a set or packet of duplicate numbers...  IE 5 tickets with identical numbers will usually ask for 550 baht.  I paid 1700 for a packet of 15 one time.

If you are going only for the 6 millions...or more...then buy an official ticket at 100 baht, which is the retail price almost everywhere, including in tiny Kanthararom, Sisaket.

 

Now, if you aim a bit lower, such as betting on the last 2 or 3 digits, then the "local" lottery is far better.

 

One example: winning the last 2 digits will get you 2,000 baht for a 100 (80) baht ticket...yet, if you "invest" these 100 baht in a "local" ticket, this will get you 7,000 baht (70 times your bet).

 

For 3 digits, it's even better...

The price of 1 ticket is 80 baht as set by the government. That will win 6 million baht. Anymore than that price and you can report the vendor to the authorities or walk away. A collection of 5 should only cost 500 baht and you could win 30 million baht.

Anyone can win. It makes no difference where you come from but be prepared to go to the main office in Bangkok if you win the top prize to collect.

At the present time going though the thai courts is a ex police man that won 30 million and then all the snakes came out and claimed he had stolen the ticket off the real owner who happen to be a school teacher.

 

3 sellers said it was true and the local police said to the police winner go 50 50 and we will forget it.

 

All the evidence says the retired cop is the true owner on the ticket and his finger prints are only ones on the ticket.

 

So just letting you know if you win big watch out the vultures will circle.
