Taipei, May 23 (CNA) Seven large prizes in the receipt lottery for January-February have not yet been claimed, including three for NT$10 million (US$337,082) each, according to the Ministry of Finance (MOF), which manages the lottery.

The three unclaimed NT$10 million receipts were among 11 special prizes drawn for the first two months of the year, and they carried the number 18927486, the ministry said Monday.

The three NT$10 million prize-winning uniform invoices, as they are formally called, were all issued in Kaohsiung, including one for a NT$76 food purchase at MLD shopping mall in the city's Qianzhen District, the ministry said.

The other two were issued in Sanmin and Gangshan districts, for NT$139 at a 7-Eleven convenience store and NT$7,616 at a fashion store, respectively, the MOF said.

Meanwhile, four of the 12 grand prizes of NT$2 million each were also unclaimed as of Monday, the ministry said, adding that the winning number on those receipts was 82050976.

They were issued for NT$110 purchase at an ice cream store in Pingtung County, NT$273 spent in the App Store, and NT$65 for cigarettes and NT$125 for food at two 7-Eleven convenience stores in Tainan, respectively, according to the ministry.

Holders of the winning receipt numbers are urged to claim their prizes before the July 5 deadline, the MOF said.

The uniform invoice lottery is drawn every two months, offering prizes ranging from millions of Taiwan dollars to NT$200, based on the eight-digit numbers on the receipts.

The MOF, which manages the lottery, said the goal is to give consumers an incentive to ask for the receipts so that retailers cannot avoid paying taxes on their revenues.
