A while back, a major government operated lottery system here in Canada was in the middle of a scandal. This is not about that. This is about 2 enterprising bank workers in China who were “borrowing” money from their employer to play a lottery. Their logic was simple. Borrow money, buy tickets, win the big one, pay back borrowed money.

After spending about $7.2 million and still not winning “the big one”, they finally gave up and ran away.

Unfortunately, they were both caught. If convicted of all charges, they will be executed.
