Phayao villagers flock to worship auspicious jackfruit tree

Hoping to win the Thai Lottery Oct. 16, villagers in Phayao have been flocking to worship an auspicious jackfruit tree.

The tree, believed to be over 100-years-old and located in Moo 4 Ban Tun, Mueang Phayao is believed to be lucky due to its age and its apparent ability to pick lottery numbers.

Somehow, the tree has predicted 152, 159 and 150 as auspicious numbers for the next lottery draw.

Seven colorful ribbons have been tied to the tree to increase its auspicious nature and lottery number picking skills.
