Ticket vendors seek to bypass middlemen

- +

A group of disabled lottery ticket vendors is calling on the junta to directly allocate them a quota of tickets to help them remain in business. 

It comes after the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) announced a cap on the retail price of lottery tickets at 80 baht, effective from today, as part of its efforts to clamp down on rampant overpricing.

According to the vendors, it is impossible to sell lottery tickets at 80 baht each because they are forced to buy the tickets from middlemen at 94 baht apiece.
