Cat predicts lottery numbers
They say there are no shortcuts to success; however, winning the lottery can surely give you a leg up. A large portion of Thais try their luck in the Thai Government Lottery every day – it’s such a big part of the culture that there are famed sites that many travel to in hopes of “seeing” the winning numbers.
There are also professional and famed lottery number predictors. Recently, there’s been a new addition to the list – Jao Tone, or “Lord Tone”, a cat from a small town in Ang Thong who frequently helps locals foresee winning lottery numbers. Due to his success rate, lottery enthusiasts from all over the country now make the trip to the Wiset Chai Chan district.
A beloved cat among locals
Jao Tone is a black and white cat that is often spotted near the Wat Mai Khok Moringa temple in Wiset Chai Chan. Locals believe that by coming to the temple to make merits, Jao Tone will bless them with his lottery predictions by sitting close to a vehicle whose registration plates contain the winning numbers.

According to Naewna, Jao Tone’s most recent prediction came in the form of a motorcycle: the kitty was spotted resting on a bike’s seat, which caused locals to quickly publicise the registration numbers for other lottery enthusiasts.

Jao Toon attracts such a large number of people to the temple that the committee has elected to sell tote bags of the lucky cat for ฿99 (~USD3.29).
The cat’s predictions are so accurate that even renowned lottery forecaster, Jae Fong, mentioned Jao Tone’s abilities on her page.
