What is the Thai Lotto?

The Thai Lotto is an official national lottery in Thailand. It is run by the Government Lottery Office (GLO), which distributes funds to the country’s welfare, civil, and charity organizations.

Tickets for the Thai Lotto are available at a price of 160 baht, with a minimum purchase of one ticket. They are printed on special yellow paper. Several prize levels are available. Each ticket includes a schedule of prizes, ancillary information, and anti-counterfeiting features. However, you must be physically present in Thailand to claim any award.

You can buy tickets at authorized retailers, retail brokers, or wholesalers. If you win, you must present your passport, your ticket, and the winning number to the GLO office. You must then fill out a claim form. All winners must pay a stamp duty on their winnings. Depending on the size of the prize, it can be claimed by a local agent or paid out in cash.

To win the prize, you need to take part in the lottery, which is offered on the first and the 16th of each month. Prizes range from 1,000 baht to 40,000 baht. There are also jackpots. The largest prize is six million baht.

The prize amount must be claimed in two years from the date of the draw. To claim your prize, visit a Thai government lottery office. In Bangkok, there are three such offices. These offices print the tickets and also handle the printing jobs for other government agencies.

A special two-tone watermark is applied to the tickets, which is seen under ultra-violet light. Besides that, tickets are coated with chemicals that prevent stains. But, if there are stains on the tickets, drops of bleach will remove them.

There are only two forms of legal gambling in Thailand: horse racing and the Thai Lotto. Ticket prices are low, but the chances of winning are excellent. Although, you can buy the numbers on estimates, which are more expensive.

The Thai Lotto was first started by a European-styled lottery in 1868. This was the year that King Chulalongkorn’s birthday was celebrated. The lottery was drawn to raise funds for social and economic benefits, especially in the wake of world war I. Later, ลือลั่น สนั่นเมือง became a means to raise money for the Red Cross.

The lottery was discontinued for ten years in 1923, and later returned in 1934. That was the year when the Thai Lottery’s legislative framework was set in place. Today, the government distributes twenty million baht a year to the nation’s welfare and civil services.

Tickets for the Thai Lotto are sold by a network of 14,760 registered retail vendors. The Government Lottery Office sells the tickets to wholesalers, retailers, and brokers.

In the past, there were only two types of tickets. First, there was the Thai Charity Lottery, and second, the Thai Government Lottery. Both of these used to have “jackpot” prizes. The first was B22 million, and the second was B30 million. Previously, the winner had to get the right six digits in order to qualify for the jackpot.
