Intrigued by this sudden fascination, a journalist investigated and discovered that residents had flocked to seek the elusive lucky numbers.

Among them, 45 year old Thiprada Namprasert, residing at house number 157, 11th ward, Nong Chang, Bueng Sam Phan District, Phetchabun, revealed that the lucky turtle was found by her nephew on the roadside.

Initially mistaken for a rock due to its dark colour, it was picked up and identified as a headless, legless turtle. The shell was dark with a golden-yellow underside.

On hearing that it was a rare tortoise shell, she brought it home, buoyed by the belief that anyone who finds it or has it wander into their home is bound to receive good luck.

This was the first time Thiprada had seen a tortoise shell. Not wanting to miss the opportunity, she dusted it with powder in search of lucky numbers.

She found the number 104 visible and believed that she would win the lottery again, having dreamt of six turtles and subsequently winning a two-digit lottery prize in the previous draw. With this full-fledged lucky turtle encounter, she was confident of another win reported Sanook.
