Pakistani Prize Bonds: Poor Man’s Vegas

via jang.com.pk

If one walks in streets of downtown Rawalpindi at night, he can easily spot two or three people sitting under the streetlight, calculating from which number the first prize or second prize starts in the next draw. Zero is the house of five, two is the house of seven, nine is the house of four. Three is the house of eight and six sits in the house of one. There are such minute calculations that a novice can hardly understand. It is not necessary that you place your bet on the whole six digit number of a prize bond. The betting starts from a single digit and then goes right through to the six-figure mark. Akraa, Tandola, Bata, PC and Jalwa PC are some of the most sought after items in the prize bond market.
