    Why do Chinese lottery winners wear such silly costumes? Like every single country in the entire world, China is pretty poor (relatively-speaking). They also have a dearth of police protection. So, when people win a lot of money, most would prefer to keep it low-key to avoid thieves. However, since they have to be on camera win they win to do free publicity for the lottery, it’s not unusual to see Chinese lottery winners wearing outfits that imply they got their giant checks by trick-or-treating. We dug up twenty of the best Chinese costumes from lottery winners:

    1. Sam Reeves says:

      I’m pleased to see even the Transformers and Spiderman have equal rights to win the lottery as normal human beings do. China is surely learning right from wrong.

      How nice it is that China’s national animal the Panda, has also won several times, although I’m now concerned that some form of lottery ‘fixing’ might be involved.
