Lottery buyers bet on trapped soccer players

LOTTERY tickets ending with 13 were sold out in just one hour today (July 1, 2018) in the southern Thai province of Trang as news about 13 young soccer players trapped in a cave in the northern province of Chiang Rai continued to dominate front-page headlines, reported.

“I went to all lottery selling stalls and vendors in town but the tickets ending with 13 were sold out,” a lottery buyer said.

Underground lottery traders also refused to accept bets ending with 13 or 31.

“I was disappointed,” another buyer said. “I pray for the soccer players everyday.”
