MOF Taxation Agency official Chang Cheng-kun said 12 invoice lottery tickets for the NT$10 million prize of January-February were released in March, however, only seven have been claimed.

Chang said the redeemed percentage for the January-February NT$10 million prize is less than 60 percent - lower than the average 74 percent. The deadline to collect January-February prizes is July 5.

Chang urged the winners not to let the prize money slip through their fingers as the unclaimed lottery money will otherwise be returned to the National Treasury Administration.

Since the MOF established the NT$10 million prize in 2011, Chang said 143 winning invoice lottery tickets have been issued over the past two years, with 106 already having been redeemed. He added that on average 10 invoice lottery tickets for the NT$10 million prize are allocated every period.

Chang said the winner must deduct 20 percent for income tax and 0.4 percent for stamp duty, with taxation taking NT$2.04 million of the NT$10 million, leaving the winner with NT$7.96 million.

As for the winners of the NT$10 million prize in January-February, the MOF said the invoices were generated through purchases of a NT$65 cup-noodle in a convenience store in Kaohsiung City, a NT$100 purchase of cigarettes in Taichung City, a NT$115 purchase of food and drink at a convenience store in Taoyuan County, a NT$200 purchase from Market Taiwan and a NT$300 purchase of gas at a gas station in Taitung County.

The March-April invoice lottery winning numbers were announced by the MOF yesterday. The winning numbers for the NT$10 million prize are 13393774, while the winning digits for the NT$2 million prize are 25894576. Winners, who must present suitable identification and the invoice, can claim their prizes at post offices between June 6 and September 5.
