Lottery Prizes
Thailand 2016, lottery in Thailand will be drawn twice of each month, 1st and 16th; between those periods, you'll easily see a lot of sellers carrying lottery ticket trays around the town and keen to sell a lottery ticket to you. Most lottery sellers will be a middle until low class people in Thailand who move from various provincial areas to Bangkok for finding work to do and lottery ticket sellers are what they choose. The lottery ticket price is now 80 baht ($2.2), which has been reduced from 100 - 120 baht since overthrowing by Junta (Prayut Chan-o-cha). But shortly afterwards, the price was increased to the same as before (100 baht). If the lottery can be grouped by the same number, the price of each ticket can be up to 120 baht or more. If you are lucky enough to win the first prize, you'll get 6 million baht ($167,000), but usually Thais will hope to just last 2 digits (from all 6 digits) and the prize is 2,000 baht ($56).
 
Besides the huge prize which was quite hard to win, something interesting hidden under the ticket tray. It's some kind of traditional painting; such as a flower, animal, portrait of the past king, etc. But so pity, no one cares about these art pictures. Buyers do care just winning the lottery and daydream how to spend money after getting the prize. Also sellers do care just how they will sell out before their lottery tickets become worthless papers.
 
Not surprised if those art pictures will be completely ignored because they aren't the objective of the lottery and who cares what pictures will be, if they're still able to sell or buy a chance. Well, that's not totally true actually, many unexpected things waiting to be found, seen, and felt except winning or money. Though since I made this project I have never won from the tickets I bought, but with those discovered pictures; I think I have already got the prizes.
