Samui Taxi driver wins 30 million baht lottery

Recommended Posts

My neighbor has been friends with this guy for years and said he has had a million people come out off the woodwork since he won.

He is going to build his parents a house and give money to his kids seemingly. Also his wife left him a few months ago for another guy , bet she's happy now !!:laugh:

Fifteen x 2 = 30

He bought 5 tickets all with the same number. one ticket has 2 parts to it both same number. One part off it is worth 3 million so if if you have one whole ticket you can win 6 million. He had 5 whole tickets , hence 30 million.

You can buy single tickets, books off 5 and books of 10.

I thought the maximum pay out is around 2 Million?

So he bought 10 + tickets with the same number?

.....and if you read the link that you have so kindly provided you will find out about the 30 million baht bonus prize.

It was a bit of a rhetorical question. But you are quite wrong anyway. Sometimes it is better not to try and be a smart arse ;-). Bonus prize eliminated by military government after 1 Aug 2015.

Thank you for your explanation, I'm just wondering what the odds are of someone buying 5 jackpot winning tickets?

just as bad as the odds off him having one winning ticket !! Thais usually but multiples a lot .

But the odds compared to payout are some off the worst available but it keeps the dream alive for the average poor person !! 9 years I have done it for and not won 1 bht !!!

Good luck to this bloke! I do this lottery too but would be extremely worried if we ever won. Would it be possible to fly to bkk & get the wife to claim there even if the ticket was purchased here?

 

I'd still play my home lottery if Camelot were a little more user friendly re Brits abroad.

For the UK lottery you must be 'physically located in the UK or Isle of Man'. You would need to fly back to the UK to claim.

The lotter use agents to purchase the tickets in the countries and they will collect it if you don't wish to travel to collect it or cant due to restrictions.

Any winnings I have had were sent straight to my bank .
