What is the Thai Lotto?

thai lotto

The thai lotto is a lottery that takes place in thailand. It is run by the government and a private company known as GLO (Government Lottery Office). The Government Lottery Office prints and distributes tickets to wholesalers who then sell them to local retailers. The lottery is played by millions of people in thailand and is very popular. It is a good way to win big money and improve one’s life.

The ticket price is 80 baht, and foreigners can play as well as Thais. However, in the past, many brokers and retail venues would add a percentage on top to generate income. This resulted in the prices of the lottery tickets going up significantly. The government has since cracked down on this practice. Now retail venues can buy the tickets directly from the GLO and the maximum price is set at 80 baht.

Lottery tickets are printed on special yellow, thin, and smooth paper with a two-tone watermark of a mythical Thailand bird, Wayupak. They also feature two types of silk thread – one can be seen with the naked eye, and the other will only show up under ultraviolet light. The paper is also coated with chemicals. A drop of bleach will cause the paper to stain, while those without the chemical will not show any stains.

To prevent counterfeiting, the GLO uses a special security system. Each ticket has a six-digit number and a special watermark of the mythical bird Wayupak. In addition, the paper is coated with a special chemical. A drop of bleach will cause the paper on the winning ticket to stain, while those with no chemical will not show any stains. This is to ensure the ticket is authentic and that no one else has purchased a winner’s ticket.

Many people have tried to use different strategies to increase their chances of winning a prize. They have interpreted their dreams, prayed to banana trees, and even used candles drippings in holy water to predict their lucky numbers. Some have even visited fortune tellers for help. However, winning a prize is still mostly a matter of luck and determination.

Whenever you purchase a thai lotto ticket, you can check the results on the official website of the GLO. The results will be available shortly after the drawing. If you have a winning ticket, visit one of the GLO offices and present your passport. You will then be issued a cheque.

The winner must claim his or her prize within two years of the draw date. A withholding tax is then deducted from the prize money. In addition, the winner must submit a tax return form.

The prize money is based on the number of balls that match the winning numbers. In the past, there was a bonus prize of 22 million baht, but this was eliminated by the military government in August 2015. In addition to the top prize, there are other prizes for matching three, four, or five digits.
