Taiwan Receipt Lottery

Ever wonder what the numerical code at the top of receipts in Taiwan is used for? These numbers are for a lottery run by the government, and you have a free entry!

Known in Chinese as 統一發票, the bi-monthly lottery was created to encourage legal tax reporting by giving consumers an incentive to purchase at stores that legally report sales taxes. Every two months, sets of numbers are randomly drawn that correspond to the eight numbers printed along the top of a legal receipt.

The receipt lottery is open to everyone in Taiwan, including foreigners, and can be easily exchanged for prize money at a nearby post office with proof of identification (for amounts up to 10,000). Larger winnings can be redeemed at Taiwan Cooperative Bank. Winning tickets of lower denominations from convenience store purchases can also be immediately redeemed at that shop. Make sure the winning receipt has been stamped by the shop the original purchase was made from.

It's common practice for people in Taiwan to save all receipts from daily purchases and later check if any receipts have won. It's a free lottery, might as well see if you've won.

I have so many receipts...what's the fastest way to check? First check if the last 3 digits are a match, then work backwards.
