Receipt Lottery FAQs

1. Who can participate in this receipt lottery scheme?

Anyone can participate, even foreigners as long as their visa is valid. Foreign winners must bring their ARC for prizes over $NT1,000.

2. Why does Taiwan have a receipt lottery?

In an effort to get merchants to keep things on the books, the government created the uniform invoice lottery system to encourage consumers to collect their sales invoices, as part of the MOF’s efforts to prevent tax evasion by retailers. Having customers demand their receipt after each transaction would force merchants to record their accounts for tax purposes.

3. How to claim a prize after I’ve won?

Winners can only claim prize money within three months of the initial draw.

Prize wins of NT$200: For prizes of NT$200, you can claim them at any 7-11.

Prize wins over NT$1000 to NT$10,000: For prizes wins worth from NT$1,000 to NT$10,000, you can claim them at any post office.

Prize wins over NT$10,000: For any prize wins that are over NT$10,000, including the NT$10 million (The Special Prize), or the NT$2 million (The Grand Prize), these prize amounts are only able to be collected from The Taiwan Cooperative Bank.

If a winner has any questions about claiming the prize money, you are able to call the Ministry of Finance Service Line: (02)2396-1651.

Don’t forget to fill out the prize claiming form at the back of the receipt.

How to fill out the back of your receipt: If you haven’t got anyone to help you do it, here’s an example of what you’ll need to fill in using a receipt from 7-Eleven. Most receipts require the same seven pieces of info to be written on the back, although sometimes the order changes around:
