    Gambling is very popular in Thai.
    However, people do betting as if there is nothing wrong with it...
    That's something should be changed.

    What kind of gambling are you talking about Tatoolover?

    On the topic of gambling, I have often wondered if those lottery tickets that are sold on the street by people that appear to be homeless are legit and if anyone ever wins.

    I am going to meet a lady in Thailand soon who is a teacher. My last business was a bookmakers ( betting shop ) in England. It was a proper business regulated by the authorities, but will I be seen as some kind of gangster and looked down on ?

    Apart from the lottery gambling is illegal in Thailand,however if you pay"police tax" then it is overlooked.My sister in law used to own a snooker hall in Samutprakarn and she used to have to pay"rakaa Tamruat" each month.The local police would call in and take their fee.

    Is that the one above the tax office that is now closed down for some reason? The sign and beer garden is still there.

    I though lottery is legal? Draw is on every 1st and 15th of the month and newspaper will report the results the next day... many stories that it is often rigged though... thats how the rich gets richer in Thailand.
