ALL lottery tickets ending with “50” have been sold out for the July 1, 2017 draw in the northeastern Thai province of Khon Kaen, as buyers believe former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra, who turns 50 this year, will bring them good luck.
“I drove around the city all day, looking for lotteries ending with 50, but all to no avail,” 29-year-old Thongchai Montri told INN News today (June 28).
The next lottery draw will be on July 15, and locals are betting on numbers “58,” “85,” “68” and “86”. In addition to government lotteries, underground lotteries run by “influential people” are also popular among lottery bettors.
