Taipei, Sept. 18 (CNA) A single winner hit the jackpot of Taiwan's Super Lotto in Thursday's draw and will take home prize money totaling NT$611.45 million (US$21.06 million).

The winning numbers for Thursday's Super Lotto are: 09, 26, 27, 28, 32, 37, with a special number of 02.

The first prize was sold in Taitung County, a first for the southeastern county since 2014, according to Taiwan Lottery Co.

A woman surnamed Lin (林), who spoke on behalf of the lottery store that sold the winning ticket, said the biggest prize won by the store's customers in the past five years was only NT$100,000 before Thursday's draw.

The Super Lotto jackpot came after 14 consecutive biweekly draws without a winner, and followed the record first prize of NT$3.124 billion on July 27.
