An Ubon Ratchathani woman has won six million baht in the lottery but has mixed feelings about her win.

Her German husband is seriously ill with kidney disease.

Chonthida was at her local police station in Phiboon Mangsaharn district where she showed her ticket and reported her win before she goes to collect, reports Thairath.

She told police there that her husband had given her 300 baht and said to go and buy lottery tickets for her birthday which falls on this coming Friday.

She decided to get pairs of tickets with the final numbers of 57 and 75. Her winning pair of tickets in the government lottery was number 145157.

“I don’t know whether to be happy or sad,” she told police.

She used the Thai word “thukkhalap” that refers to gaining a windfall by suffering.

Thairath said they had tried to contact the woman but had been unable to.
