A majority of people who buy lottery tickets believe the draw is fixed, according to the conclusions of a Nida Poll revealed on Wednesday. 

The pollsters at the National Institution of Development Administration (Nida) surveyed 1,256 people throughout Thailand about their lottery-purchasing behaviour and for their views on whether the national lottery is rigged or not.

They reported that 50.24% of respondents thought the winning numbers were fixed because the same "doubles" and "triples" (for example 22 and 222) are frequently the winning numbers, but others thought differently, saying that the live broadcast of the lottery draw showed its transparency.
