Yesterday was Thailand’s bi-monthly lottery draw and this time there were 4 winners, that we know of. One was a 40 year old mahout (elephant handler) who lives in Pattaya who won 12 million baht. Nipon Sa-Ngam works as an elephant mahout and is originally from Buriram. He purchased 2 lottery tickets earlier this week. His winning ticket had the numbers… 873286. He headed straight down to Nongprue police to report the evidence to his local police station.

Whilst some lottery players come up with all sorts of elaborate and superstitious ways of selecting their lottery numbers, Nipon says he used numbers from a license number plate to help select his winning combination. Nipon told The Pattaya News he will continue to work as a mahout but will invest the money to help his son through his schooling and pay off debts.

There were 3 other winners of yesterday’s lottery draw.

The first person was a woman, Mukda Buka Champa, who lives in the Sawang District, Ubon Ratchathani in Thailand’s north east. Her winning ticket won her 6 million baht.

Another winner was a man (name and address withheld) who won 2 first prizes, valued at a total of 12 million baht, also from Ubon Ratchathani. He was less inclined to provide much information compared to the usual happy winners but begrudgingly posed for a photo anyway.

And then last night, Wisat Asa, a citizen of Dong Khrang, in Roi Et Province, also in the north east, rocked into Dong Khrang police station advising police he had won the 1st prize as well. Wisat told police that before he bought the ticket he had second thoughts and wanted to buy his number online as his usual lucky number wasn’t for sale, but he ended up purchasing on from the local vendor and won 12 million baht. What does it take to get this man to smile?!

Buying beef online? Is it real beef or faux beef? Almost all of the samples of ‘beef” ordered online, or taken as samples from schools in Bangkok and Prachinburi province, were found to be fake. The Halal Science Centre at Chulalongkorn University did the checks and was astonished to find that much of the beef bought online was actually cheaper cuts of pork. The pork can be marinated in ox blood to take on the appearance of beef. Harmful bacteria was also detected in portions of the samples checked by the University team. The actual percentage of the beef checked that […]

State schools told not to fully re-open until the CCSA gives permission | The Thaiger

The Office of Basic Education Commission has ordered public schools to wait for a formal approval from the CCSA (Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration) before re-establishing their full timetable. Since schools reopened at the start of July, schools with large classes of students have been required to split upinto two groups, operating on an odd/even basis with half the class on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and the other half on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. In another arrangement one group of students studied for five days in a row, while the others stayed at home and studied online. Then swap over the […]

Thailand’s Supreme Court has sentenced former PM Thaksin Shinawatra to 5 years in prison after finding him guilty of illegally owning shares in phone companies with government concessions, as well as conflict of interest, for changing concession fees and excise taxes to benefit his family’s company, Shin Corp. The court heard that Thaksin held a majority of shares, through proxies, in Shin Corp, which was granted a concession by the state, thus violating the Constitution. The case was suspended after Thaksin fled the country in 2006, but was revived after the proclamation of an organic law that allowed the court […]
