New LotteryPosted by Stuart at 11:38 AM on June 27, 2003
(I've never found a good use for the BLINK tag, but this is about as good a reason as any, isn't it? Now, back to the original post...)
When I lived in San Francisco, I bought at least one lottery ticket every week. Sure, the chances of me winning millions of dollars with my $1 "bet" were close to zero, they still weren't zero. So I played and dreamed.
I have seen a lottery here in Thailand, but I am not sure how it works. Also, I have been told that it is an "underground, illegal" lottery. (Some things in Thailand are supposedly illegal, but you see them out in the open. It is a matter of which laws are being enforced and which aren't.)
But now the government is sponsoring a new legal underground lottery. Doesn't "underground" mean illegal? I'm not quite sure of the logic, but apparently, starting on July 17, we will all be able to buy lottery tickets at 600 post offices around Thailand.
And yes, I just might find myself blowing a few baht there.
Thanks for the explanation, A.
In any case, perhaps you are right in that Math teachers (like me) should know better than to waste their money on lotteries. But then again, any math teacher also knows that any chance of winning, however small, is still a chance of winning.
OK, THIS IS GETTING RIDICULOUS! :P What's up with all these Indian and Pakistani people asking me for lottery numbers?
I do NOT have any information about the Thai lottery. I do NOT know what numbers you should pick. I do NOT know what the winning numbers were, are or will be.
I am not the Oracle at Delphi. Please! hehe.
Sigh. Silly isn't it? I'm afraid I'm going to have to turn off the comments on this one. Thanks for playing. ;)
To win a lottery in Thailand, you have to have the correct seven numbers to get money from the first, second, third, fourth and the fifth prize. But there're still a chance to win the last three numbers and the last two numbers too.
For an underground lottery, it's still illegal. But the one that the goverment sponsoring may be acceptable from Thai people. This"underground" doesn't mean illegal I think. But it may mean the way how the underground lotteryworks. I don't know much about it. But it would increase the chance to win! 'cos it's like they buy only last 3 and 2 numbers and also get money if they buy the switching numbers too.
people who love Math know that it's very hard to win a lottery BUT Thai Math teachers still love to buy it.
