25th May 2023 – (Taipei) Two customers in Taiwan have won the NT$10 million (US$324,380) Special Prize in the latest edition of the Taiwan receipt lottery. One customer, who spent just NT$46 (US$1.49) at Hi-Life in Pingtung County, won the top prize, while another customer spent NT$62 on bread at a 7-Eleven in Nantou County’s Xinyi Township to win the Special Prize. FamilyMart also reported that two of their customers won the top prize.

The Taiwan receipt lottery is a bi-monthly lottery that encourages consumers to ask for receipts and report tax evasion. Customers who make purchases at designated stores and restaurants are eligible to participate in the lottery by entering the receipt’s serial number in a drawing. The lottery also offers other prizes, including cash prizes, cars, and consumer goods.

On Thursday (25th May), the Ministry of Finance (MOF) announced the winning numbers for the most recent round of the Taiwan receipt lottery. Hi-Life reported that one customer won the Special Prize by purchasing a bottle of soy milk and two tea eggs at a branch in Pingtung County’s Hengchun Township. The luckiest FamilyMart shopper spent NT$84 on an unspecified item at a branch in Taitung County’s Luye Township.
