Can Foreigners Win And Collect Lottery Prize?

44 posts in this topic

If I played the lottery and won several million baht, can I collect the prize?

Also, can anyone who has played, give advice on the different kinds of lottery. I am a bit confused when they seem to be making up the prices for the tickets.

I am a foreigner and won 1,000 baht on a ticket once. I took in and received

900 baht.

Yes you can receive the prize, but I have often heard it said that you should always get a Thai to collect any large prize for you.

Good luck, I would suggest that the Thai you get to collect your winnings is securely attached to you by a long chain, just in case.

I wouldn't have the nerve to play the lottery here.

This may sound a bit over the top but there are still lots and lots and lots of poor people here and although I'm on a pissy monthly wage, I would feel very cheeky playing the lotto - and if I won, I would understand any Thai wanting to shoot me.

That was the idea behind getting a Thai to collect the money.

How would they know that you were the lucky one?

You'd have to be a nut to buy Thai lottery tickets. Figure out the odds of winning, and you will see that they are lousy in comparison to what the jackpot pays.

There was an american a few months back who won the lottery and he claimed his price. So I guess its no problem

I'd get my wife's mom to do it. I trust her completely, because she totally loves me.

It is no problem to collect the money, the problem start when you want to transfer the money out of Thailand.

Why would you want to play for the meager 3 million bath ??

Better play online on european or american lotteries then. Here in Belgium the minimal price is 1 mil euro twice a week with average prize jackpot's hangin between 1,5 and 2 mil.

The ticket cost only twice what is asked in thailand.

I would call thai lottery a scam

Not a real problem here. Just place it on deposit, and get the bank to issue you with and international ATM card. I can draw up to 40,000 a day on my card, and that's well over a quarter of a million baht a week. Wouldn't take too long to drain the account at that rate. Of course it would be extra nice if I had a few million to draw on :o However, I do use mine a lot when overseas, and it's good for EFTPOS transactions as well.
