    Lottery Experiment

    So my Wife is all chuffed today because she won the lottery. She chose number 7 for 2,000 baht and 785 came up.

    I win 4000฿

    ---how much did you pay?

    I buy number 7
    2000฿

    ---so you win 2,000?

    4000

    ---so 6000

    Because I not pay yet
    I got money 4000฿
    I buy your number 20฿
    Lol


    Well, I can't argue with that logic... So I told her that for 2,000 baht I could buy 65 South Korean Lottery tickets at 1,000 WON a piece (31 baht).

    Average 1st prize winning amount 62,604,273 baht
    The highest prize money 1,251,642,147 baht

    So I went on the hunt for a lotto outlet and figured as I'm working tomorrow and not out on the lash tonight i've probably saved myself about 10k baht so I bought 100 tickets which charged my Thai account, including ATM fee, 3,373 baht.

    I reckon I will win more than she did.

    And I'm entitled to claim it too. One illegal Thai worker who won it simply paid the fine and took the rest home. Lotto’s “Korean Dream” : The DONG-A ILBO

    Wish me luck.
    Lang may yer lum reek...

    First place Match 6 numbers 1 / 8,145,060 Of the total winnings, 75%

    2nd place Match 5 numbers + bonus number match 1 / 1,357,510 Of the total winnings, 12.5%

    Third place Match 5 numbers 1 / 35,724 Of the total winnings, 12.5%

    Fourth Match 4 numbers 1/733 $ 50

    5th Match 3 numbers 1/45 5,000 won

    So I should expect at least 10,00 won. 307 baht. I'll beat that.

    For a minute there I thought you were going to suggest a Teakdoor lottery syndicate.

    She wins, looks like I'm going to work tomorrow.

    I got 5 winning tickets of 3 numbers and a return of 25%, 25,000 won or 769 baht.

    100 goes though, must be my turn soon!

    My missus is really into this. She has lots of cunning plans. These in the past have included the number of leaves on a particular plant, the exact minute i get back from work and numbers she dreams of. A recent one was putting slips of paper with numbers on under her pillow, to see which were out in the morning. Nada. Not even close.

    The latest cunning plan is to get one of the cats to pick the winning number. Only one of the four cats will play along, and the little shit is coming up blank.

    If the little fucker does not up his game he may well be in a krapow one night.

    We were talking about the underground lottery a couple of weeks back, and how the people who take peoples numbers are basically gambling themselves but with odds in their favour, assuming they sell enough variations. Basically they need to make more than they have to pay out.

    Then I found out there was a guy in Trang I think, uncle of a friend of a friend kinda thing that was selling lotto. There was a funeral on the go and everyone there put on the deceased's bike number and it came in leaving the guy in 5 million debt. Apparently he has accepted his responsibility on this and is still paying it off.

    Funny you should mention the cat choosing the lottery numbers Gert asked our cat for some lottery numbers as well. I think our winning ticket numbers might have been the cats numbers, because she got 1kg of fish brought for her today.
