“I will continue doing my job as a lifeguard. I love my job and I am happy with it.”

32 year old Nara Nalack, Patong lifeguard, has won first prize in the bi-weekly national lottery, receiving a prize of 30 million baht.

The Thai lottery is announced twice each month (the 1st and 16th of each month). The first prize ticket wins 6 million baht.

Mr Nara went to the Patong Police Station with the set of five lottery tickets number 109767 to record his prize winnings.

Mr Nara says, “I don’t usually buy lottery tickets. This time I met the lottery seller that I have known for a long time. I didn’t have any numbers in my mind. I thought 767 is a nice number. So I bought this set. This is the first time that I bought many lottery tickets at one time. Normally I buyt only one ticket not in a set.”

“I was very surprised that I won the first prize. I will give money to my father, for my two children’s education, to fix my house and for my family expenses.”

“I will continue doing my job as a lifeguard. I love my job and I am happy with it. I can take care of tourists’ safety. I became a lifeguard after the tsunami in 2004. ”
