Thai Rath went to investigate after an amusing online post from a female Thai teacher who said she felt she had won the lottery after giving up her addiction. 

 

Araya, 52, a mathematics teacher at Roi-Et Withayalai in Thailand's north east for 30 years said that three years after quitting playing the lottery she has built a house, has three rai of land and will soon be getting a Mercedes Benz. 

 

Her online post garnered much attention because she pictured herself surrounded by thousands of losing tickets from playing the lottery for three years. In that time Araya only won small prizes related to getting the last two or three digits right.

 

She said that she spent 30-40,000 baht a time, twice a month on the lottery.

 

She said that she got the money by doing after hours special tutoring. 

 

Now three years after quitting she recognises that she has finally "won the lottery".

A Math teacher who didnt understand the numbers !....555555

 

If she had won 3 million she would have only got around her 3 yr spend returned.

 

Never understood where all this Lottery money goes ? Same ticket price as UK, same size population (nearly) and yet the Top prize here is 6 mil and the Uk around 200 mil !! and we never hear of "good causes" being funded either. so where is it all going ???? ................or do we know the answer to that already....sshhhhh

 

 

The lottery website has all the details of what they do with the money.
