Vietnam has just allowed the lottery operate July this year. The partnership between Malaysia’s Berjaya Corporation and Vietlott operated the 6/45 lottery game without a jackpot winner – as in ever since they started in July!
This caused the initial prize of just VND 12b (US$536,000) to snowball to a huge VND 92b or US$4.1 million in 39 draws. A farmer finally from Tra Vinh province broke through to bag the huge jackpot last Sunday. The lucky man will bring home about $3.7 million after taxes. This win is expected to boost ticket sales in a big way.
