Many others let fate decide and choose a ticket at random from the one million numbers available.
Yet many people believe the odds of playing the Thai lottery are not favourable and without the old “jackpot” prizes, the maximum major prize to be won with one pair of lucky tickets bought for B80 is limited to B6 million, less taxes. (See Q&A ‘One in a million: All you need to know about winning the Thai Lottery’, click here.)
The Government Lottery Office (GLO) this week is likely to receive a proposal from Tanawat Polwichai, a GLO official who recently headed an investigation into the operations of the lottery, to print more books of tickets. (See story here.)
However, the effect of printing more books of tickets will increase the opportunity for people to win bigger prizes, but will not increase the actual chance of winning.
To this, The Phuket News asks readers, “Is the Thai lottery worth playing?”
Responses available are:
- No, the chances of winning any of the prizes are too small.
- No, the prizes are not big enough and without a “jackpot” it’s not worth entering
- Yes, the tickets are cheap and the main prizes are large enough.
- Yes, if you believe in your luck. Luck is all it takes to win any lottery.
