Remember when Vietnam… any mention of…referred to the war?
Now they’re Americanizing the lottery.
Vietnam’s first ever self-select lottery opened recently with a minimum jackpot of VND12 billion, or $535,000 in US dollars in Ho Chi Minh City.
The computerized lottery “Mega 6/45” was introduced with that record jackpot eight times the highest prize in traditional Vietnamese lotteries.
The new lottery project is a cooperative effort between Vietnam’s state-run lottery company Vietlott and an indirect subsidiary of Malaysia-based firm Berjaya Corp Bhd (BCorp).
