Like every country a lottery is there for a bit of entertainment for the masses or for the desperate ones !!

Things have changed now but in the 2010 Lottery Ticket vendors would operate on the street.

Tickets are sold by vendors who sit on the street and sell by drive through customers.  Often in a wooden box with chicken netting on the top.

2012 saw changes to bringing modern Lottery to Vietnam when the Minister of Finance approved Vietnam Lottery as a limited liability company.

Vietlott is a state owned enterprise, which was designed to reduce the operation of illegal lotteries in Vietnam.  Proceeds from the lottery are not only given back in the form of prizes but also put into the States Budget.
