Largest Lottery Payout in History of China Worries Officials
The country of China has been back and forth in their stance concerning the lottery in the past 100 years, and at least one person is happy the country is currently running one.
An unidentified man who lives in one of the poorest provinces in China picked up 20 tickets for the "Double Colour Ball", on Tuesday. He later found out that he was the winner of $14 million.
While most were glad for the man and his winnings, some were concerned over the potential for more crime and other problems relating to the lottery.
China has had a problem over the past few years when it comes to illegal lottery schemes and crimes that were related to the lottery.
In a statement on The Welfare Lottery's official website, they warned future customers, "The centre's officials were glad to hear of such surprising news, but they would also like to remind lottery ticket buyers that it is a recreation the state offers the people."
Farmers in Gansu only make an average of a little over 2,000 yuan a year.
