A resident from Khao Chamao district in Rayong province hit the jackpot, winning the first prize in the Thai government lottery. The 50 year old Rayong resident, Chai Chet, claimed his fortune of 6 million baht after dreaming of his late grandfather.

The Thai government lottery’s results were announced yesterday, with the winning number for the first prize being 557990. The three-digit prefix was 346 and 412, while the three-digit suffix was 778 and 961. The two-digit suffix was 14.

Following the Thai lottery announcement, one Facebook user posted a picture with a message.

“Hello, the first prize is in Khao Chamao. Congratulations to my big brother. He won 6 million.”

The picture showed him holding the winning lottery ticket number 557990 for the draw yesterday.

When asked how he got the number, Chai Chet revealed that he dreamt of his grandfather, who passed away six years ago. The 90 year old’s age was then used to buy a single lottery ticket. He bought the Thai government lottery ticket at the Pattana intersection in Khao Chamao district, Rayong province, which turned out to be the first prize number 557990 in yesterday’s draw.

With the money he won, he plans to let his mother make merit for his late grandfather. He also intends to build a house for his family, maintain his farm, and continue driving a school van as before, reported Sanook.

A 61 year old construction worker hailing from a village in Subsomotod, Beung Sam Pan District, Phetchabun province secured a remarkable 12 million baht in a lottery by heeding the guidance of a dream. She bought the winning tickets based on a dream and intends to allocate the winnings for the educational expenses of her five grandchildren. Read more HERE.

The term lucky hardly does justice to the anonymous Thai citizen who acquired 19 winning tickets in Thailand’s national lottery, raking in a total of 114 million baht (US$3.3 million). Read more HERE.
