Two women who were members of a three person syndicate that won the National Lottery in April said that their friend took all of the 30 million baht winnings.

The two ladies said they were due to receive 12 million and six million baht each as part of their respective shares in the syndicate, reported Sanook.

Rewadee Hakaew and Wilaiporn Ratanatisoi went with a representative of a victim of crimes’ group to the Crime Suppression Division yesterday.

Rewadee told the police that on march 28th she bought five pairs of tickets with the number 066720 using her own money. She signed two of them on the back as her share and gave all of them to friend Sudarat (no surname supplied) to look after.

On April 1st the numbers came up in the first prize and won a total of 30 million baht. Rewadee said that she contacted Sudarat for her 12 million baht share but was told that she never bought them.

Similarly Wilaiporn was treated in the same way when she claimed 6 million baht for the one pair share of the syndicate that she said was hers.

Today the claimants and Atchariya Ruangratanaphong of the victims of crime group are to contact the national lottery office to further investigate the matter.
