Thai woman won 6 million THB


The seven figure grand prize that lottery tickets promise draws a large amount of the Thai population. Lottery is such a huge part of Thai culture that we have an established set of beliefs and methods to obtain winning lotto numbers; the number one tactic being dream interpretation. 

In the case of Mrs. Tithiya Bantaohome, a hawker lady next to Jom Sri Pittayakarn School in Udon Thani, she won ฿6,000,000 (~USD191,938) after deciphering codes from her son’s dream.

Lottery in Thailand: 


Lottery numbers from a dream


In March, Mrs. Bantaohome’s son’s best friend, unfortunately, passed away. The lottery winner’s son reportedly told her that his late friend visited him in a dream wearing the same shirt he wore on the day of his demise – the shirt had the numbers “1970” on it. 

The deceased also allegedly asked her son, “Why are you still struggling? why aren’t you rich yet?” prior to throwing a sack of rice loaded with cash towards his friend.

After her son conveyed his dream to her, Mrs. Bantaohome bought a lotto ticket with the numbers ‘472270’. Little did she expect, she would be announced the winner of the first place reward on 1st April 2021, reported by Khaosod

Thankfully, this was no April Fool’s joke.
