|Sarai wasn’t like the other go-go dancers. They knew that the equivalent of a few thousand pounds a year would be enough to take care of their whole family, but Sarai wasn’t there just to send money home every month. She had discovered that selling tickets for the illegal Thai Lottery is more dangerous than she could ever have imagined, and she owed a great deal of money.
Thai Lottery is the story of the lengths a girl will go to when a debt becomes a matter of life and death, and of the westerners who have bought their own tickets to a more personal lottery. Coming to Thailand they are looking for something missing from their lives. Some may be lucky, most will have to wait for another day but for a few the result will be utter despair.
