Thai Lottery

The Thai national lottery operates twice a month, on the 1st and 16th. It's broadcast on live TV and always gets high ratings.

In the Thai lottery there are two different money-pools which differ in the amount of the top prize. In the first the top prize is two million baht. In the second the top prize is three million baht for six matching digits. The second also funds community projects.

The cost of the tickets is 80 baht per ticket. You might wonder why you receive two tickets while paying only for one. The price for one ticket is 80 Baht but one ticket consists of two 'halves', so the winner will always win double (see the examples below).

There are nine different prize classes; there are consolation prizes for those whose number is just a single digit higher or lower than that of the top prize. There are also 2000 baht or 1000 baht prizes for those who match the first three, the final three or two digits.

If you've been lucky and won the lottery, you can collect your winnings (up to 20,000 baht) at the local lottery agent. The agent will deduct the tax and a 0.5% fee (bonus) for themselves, about 1.5%. For prizes of more than 20,000 baht, you have to go to a branch of the Thai government to collect the winnings by cheque. The location of the offices where you can do this can be ascertained by ringing 02-345-1466.

"Ten "guests" unaffiliated with the lottery attend each drawing to act as official witnesses. Drawings are held at GLO headquarters on the first and sixteenth of every month. Should either of these dates fall on a holiday, the draw is postponed to the next day. All drawings are televised from 15:00 to 16:00 on the day of the draw." More info about the Thai lottery can be found on Wikipedia
