Verdict on Lost Lotteries

Lost Lotteries is a crime comedy following a group of hard-working but underachieving Thais. They have had their winning lottery ticket stolen by a mafia boss who is unaware there is a winning ticket in the selection. The group look to steal it back to give themselves a better life, one they believe they deserve.

While the movie does bring real-life issues to the table, it doesn’t hold back on bringing the comedy along the way. It shows how certain communities are forgotten about in society and taken advantage of by others. Seeing the plan come together is like most comedy heist movies. It hits the funny moments while maintaining the serious nature of what is going on.

Where to Watch: Lost Lotteries is available on Netflix now.

Final Thoughts Lost Lotteries is a fun little heist movie, getting the comedy down well.
