Pornthida Chamnanwet, a native of Ubon Ratchathani province, filed her complaint at Phra Pradaeng Police Station about 10:30pm last night.

She said she and her husband Wijak Wannaprasit, 34, a native of Bangkok’s Thon Buri district, worked in the same factory.

They had cashed in a ticket for a three-digit prize with a lottery vendor on Nov 9. At the same time they bought two more government lottery tickets, one of which she picked.

The ticket she chose, 017223, won a B6mn first prize in the draw on Saturday.

They had recorded their win at Phra Pradaeng Police Station, had their photos taken with the ticket and also signed their names on it, Ms Pornthida said. Then they returned to their rented room on Soi Suk Sawat 64.

Overjoyed, they agreed to divide the prize equally between them and were planning how they would each spend their share, she said.

Yesterday evening, Ms Pornthida said, Mr Wijak told her she would have to make do with only B2mn. She asked why. Then they had argued.

Her husband told her to go to court, and walked out with the ticket, she said.

Ms Pornthida asked police to prevent her husband cashing in the ticket and said she would also ask the Government Lottery Office to block payment.
