Panama Lottery

Lottery is quite popular here in rural Panama. In front of every super is a ticket sales and twice a week people gather around their radios to listen for the winning numbers.  

It is common for family and friends to join in a card game and wait for the winning numbers.  

These little radios are all over rural Panama. It is great entertainment to watch and hear the scratchy voice in Spanish on the little radio,  and wait and visit during the drawing. Here is the only radio in the house. Typical and fun.  

The winnings are smaller than the states, but there are many winners. I remember when lotto was new and everyone would watch the drawing on tv with the ball machine. A little different, and a fun excuse to gather and visit with friends. I love this place!
