Asian lottery is a popular form of gambling in Asia. It is similar to lotto games found in other parts of the world, but there are some unique features that are common to Asian lottery.
Generally speaking, there is a cultural belief that karma and lucky numbers can affect your luck in life, so people across Asia play lottery games to give their karma a chance to show up in the form of financial windfalls. Fortunately, some Asian lotteries offer jackpot prizes that can be very large.
Japan’s Loto 6 is one of the best lotteries in Asia that offers some of the biggest jackpots on the market. The lottery has two draws each week and has a minimum guaranteed jackpot of 200 million yen ($1.8 million) and a maximum jackpot cap of 600 million yen.
Thailand’s national lottery, the slaakkinaebng, is drawn twice per month on the first and sixteenth. Tickets are sold to national wholesalers who sell them on to a network of retail vendors.
While many Asian lottery players are based in cities, there are also some regional lotteries that are still quite popular. There is a general belief that playing a local lottery game is a sign of belonging to the community, so Asians will often play their local lottery games on a regular basis.
A Chinese man won 220 million yuan on a regional lottery last weekend, but instead of telling his family about his win, he decided to hide it from them. He wore a yellow costume that covered his face and body to conceal his identity when he collected his check.
