Lottery in Taiwan - Teaching English in Taiwan

A few years back the government in Taiwan decide to proactively restrict “off the books” purchasing and buying. They did this by implementing a lotto system that placed lotto numbers are on each receipt that you receive from a registered store.

Every time you get a receipt there is a number on the bottom of it. This is your lotto number. Each receipt that you get has a unique eight-digit number stamped on it. On the 25th of every odd month they announce four winning numbers. You then check your receipt numbers from the previous two months.

When are Numbers Drawn

  • January and February
    • Winning numbers are announced on March 25
    • Prizes can be collected between 4/4 and 7/4
  • March and April
    • Winning numbers are announced on April 25
    • Prizes can be collected between 6/4 and 9/4
  • May and June
    • Winning numbers are announced on July 25
    • Prizes can be collected between 8/4 and 11/4
  • July and August
    • Winning numbers are announced on September 25
    • Prizes can be collected between 10/5 and 1/5

  • November and December
    • Winning numbers are announced on January 25

The amount you win is based on how many of the numbers on your receipt sequentially match the regular prize numbers.

  • Last three numbers, in the same order, you win NT$200
  • Last four numbers, in the same order, you win NT$1000
  • Last five numbers in the same order, you win NT$4,000
  • Last six numbers in the same order, you win NT$10,000
  • Last seven numbers in the same order, you win NT$40,000
  • If you match all eight numbers in the same order, you win NT$200,000

All told, it is not a bad deal considering you are receiving a ‘free’ lottery ticket every time you purchase an item. However, you will find that when faced with the task of checking two months worth of receipts your motivation will quickly dissipate. But don’t let this discourage you, the possibility of riches lie within every receipt!
