Taipei, July 30 (CNA) A lone buyer of Taiwan Lottery in Kaohsiung, southern Taiwan, has won a historic high prize money of NT$1.56 billion (US$52.07 million) Monday.

The winning number -- 03, 10, 18, 24, 29, 37 and 7 -- was sold by a betting shop in Xinxing District, Kaohsiung City.

The top prize accumulated to that high an amount after it failed to produce a winner for 32 consecutive issues.

A winner usually has to pay 20 percent in tax.
