    Still 100 to 120 depending on location/vendor.

    A pal in K Phet who had long experience explained that falangs never got paid big payouts,Ibve never done a lottery,marriage excepted ,anyone who is rational can see the injustice in even a non profit scheme.

    Its not the waste of trivial sums tho these can add up ve seen folks in France and Oz spend fortunes on scratch cards pokies and weekly draws Keno etc but waht a desperate hope that instead of making your own luck or accepting your fate some ticket will mediqate yor existence.

    Of course despite the law the Thais esp Chinese love a flutter.

    One benefit of these mugs is an excellent buffet at Treasury Casino in Brisbane and even the most modest town in Oz has an RSL or soldiers club with chepaa food and beverage thanks to the mugs
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    Lotteries are just another tax on the poor and stupid.

    Akin to numerous surtaxes that most don't recognize as being so.

    Consumption taxes.

    An article from the Bangkok Post that explains the situation with lottery ticket pricing:
