The Government Lottery Office (GLO) is toying with the idea of a new online lottery system that will allow the jackpot to roll over to a maximum of 400 million baht.
Director of the GLO Chalongrat Nark-arthit has said that the proposal is likely to be submitted to their board in September before going to the cabinet for approval.
The new lottery system will be modelled on foreign lottery systems where if the jackpot is not won then it can roll over and prize amounts could then reach as high as 400 million baht for the eventual winner.
The current GLO law is being amended so that the prize amount can be rolled over for two successive draws.
The director also said that the new system would help divert people away from underground lotteries and gambling and in doing so provide more money to the state.
He also said that a new type of ticket will be issued for the September 1st draw which will be priced at 80 baht.
