Taipei, Dec. 2 (CNA) Thirteen receipts issued by stores in Taiwan had the winning number for the special prize of NT$10 million (US$360,572) in the September-October uniform invoice lottery, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) announced Thursday.

The winning number for the NT$10 million special prize was 14872301, according to the MOF.

Among the 13 winning receipts, the lowest purchase was NT$8 (US$0.28) for a highlighter pen from a stationery store in Pingtung County, the ministry said.

Two other winning receipts for the NT$10 million special prize were also for purchases of less than NT$100, including a NT$30 beverage bought from a supermarket in Taichung, and a NT$60 parking fee spent at the Big City shopping center in Hsinchu.

The others were for a wide range of purchases valued between NT$102 and NT$2,571.

The ministry announced there were 16 winners of the grand prize of NT$2 million, which came with the number 37250799 in the September-October uniform invoice lottery, including one who spent just NT$1 on a coupon made through the online shopping platform Shopee.

Meanwhile, the winning numbers for the NT$200,000 first prize were 71086085, 53645821 and 46626911.

Invoices that match the last seven digits of the first-prize numbers win NT$40,000, and those with invoices that match the last six digits win NT$10,000.

Invoices with the last five, four and three digits of the first-prize numbers win NT$4,000, NT$1,000 and NT$200, respectively.

An additional prize of NT$200 goes to holders of invoices ending with the three-digit combination 916.

Prize draws for receipts are held in part to encourage consumers to ask for receipts, which forces retailers to record their sales and prevents them under reporting their revenue to the tax authorities.
