The lottery is one of only two forms of legal gambling in Thailand, and it’s played by over 19 million people; that’s almost 28% of the country’s population. It’s a revenue generator for organizers, a source of entertainment for the public, and a potential economic stimulus. Winners can inject their winnings back into the community, and the anticipation of a lottery win has been known to shift consumer behavior.

Tickets are available in pairs, priced at 80 baht per ticket, and include several anti-counterfeiting features. They are pre-printed, and the front side contains the schedule of prizes and supplementary information. The back of each ticket includes a queue number, and all winners must present the winning tickets along with their Thai ID card or passport (for foreigners). Winnings are subject to a 0.5% stamp duty on government lottery winnings and 1% on charitable lottery winnings.

In addition to the first prize, a bonus prize was previously available for those who correctly matched five of the six digits in a draw. However, this prize was eliminated by the military government after 1 August 2015. The Draw Chairman randomly selects a colored ball to determine the order of lesser prize draws: yellow for second prize, pink for third prize, green for fourth prize, and blue for fifth prize. The results are then announced. The last drawn digit will also announce the +-1 special prize numbers.
