The Thai lottery is the official national lottery that is administered by the Government Lottery Office. It is drawn on the first and sixteenth of every month. It is one of only two forms of legalised gambling in the country. The other is horse racing, which takes place in Bangkok. In addition to the lottery, there are other forms of gambling in Thailand. While there are few people who have actually won a prize, many people enjoy the chance to try their luck.

Thai lottery tickets have six-digit numbers printed on them. They are printed on special yellow paper that is coated with chemicals. They are also made of silk thread. One thread is visible to the naked eye and the other can only be seen under ultraviolet light. Unlike most other lottery tickets, if you try to wash them with bleach, they will be stained.

To claim a prize, lottery winners must fill out a claim form. They must provide their Thai ID card or passport in addition to their winning ticket. In addition, winners must pay a stamp duty on their winnings. The stamp duty is 0.5% for government lottery prizes and 1% for charitable lotteries.

There are many different lottery vendors in Thailand. Each vendor is assigned a certain territory. For example, the lottery vendor in Chinatown is responsible for selling lottery tickets in that area. Vendors must be at least 20 years old in order to sell lottery tickets. In Thailand, there are more than 35,000 lottery vendors registered. About 15,000 of these are in Bangkok and the rest are located in the provinces. Each vendor is required to carry a copy of their ID card and some locals do not feel comfortable buying lottery tickets from sub-vendors.

The proceeds of the lottery are split into several sectors. The first is prize money, which accounts for about 60% of the total revenue. The second is the cost of sales. The third is administrative costs. Those three sectors, combined, make up the remaining 20%. Thai lottery officials also distribute the rest to street vendors.

The top lottery prize in Thailand, 18 million baht, was won by a Buddhist monk two years ago. The monk purchased the tickets to help a local vendor during a pandemic. In 2014, the monk purchased three lottery tickets and won 18 million baht (US$500,000). Although he had no intentions of winning, the prize money will help the monk to improve the lives of other people.

The Thai lottery draws take place twice a month. These draws are broadcast live on TV. There are two types of lottery tickets available: the Thai Charity Lottery (TCL) and the Thai Government Lottery (TGL). The first prize is three million baht, while the second prize is two million baht. The lottery also has numerous other prizes to choose from.
