Receipt and Taiwan Lottery

Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

I have no idea how you could never win with 2000 receipts. You have a 5 in 1000 chance of winning 200NT. I agree though that it probably isn't worth it but maybe you get lucky.

Yeah, I always win 200, sometimes more - biggest haul 1400. You can check them while watchign TV or something. It's no big chore.
I have news. Good news from Notting Hill. The consignment of white gold for Mr Anderson has arrived.

Yeah, maybe it's just my luck. I do have notoriously bad luck.

Back in the states when I would go to Vegas with friends, I would lose everything I budgeted for gambling within in a couple of hours... I wasn't betting stupid or taking crazy risks, I would just literally not win even a single hand of blackjack,not hit a single number in roulette, not get anywhere in craps — never anything in any game at all. It's really quite impressive in a very sad way. But then I would have to spend the rest of the weekend standing around watching my friends play, to broke to go to a show or anything to keep myself entertained.

Since the receipt lottery doesn't involve purchasing tickets, I thought it was worth a shot to see if my luck would turn. Nope. Simple not in my stars. :aiyo:

Then give the whole shebang to someone else. They may strike gold.

My then gf in Taiwan always gets a few winners each two months. Many 200nt sometimes 1000nt and twice 4000nt (which needs to be taxed, the lower numbers not).
Savage - what a nice performance

After a year of collecting, I've finally won my first fapiao prize! $1000 tax-free, woohoo! :yay: Now, to redeem it… it's from a $40 7-11 purchase, with the short receipt. I'll give it a shot using my ARC, cross your fingers!

I had no problem with the short receipt at the post office. He just got me to write my name and ARC number on the back.
