A man from Thailand claims that he has used ChatGPT to generate numbers that helped him win the lottery. Patthawikorn Boonrin recently went viral after sharing details on TikTok, of how he used the AI chatbot developed by OpenAI to generate numbers that he in turn used to play the lottery and win. His strategy includes inputting some hypothetical questions as well as some prior winning numbers as a ChatGPT query, according to Mashable.
The winning numbers for Boonrin’s draw were 57, 27, 29, and 99, and he won 2,000 Thai Baht (US$59). While the prize was not large, he told a local publication that he has used this strategy to generate lottery numbers in the past. He added that ChatGPT told him not to get “too obsessed” with the method, noting that winning the lottery was a matter of luck, and also suggested that he should go out and get some exercise.
