Receipt lottery prizes are raised to promote cloud receipts

2021-04-18 13:00

The Taiwanese Government raises the receipt lottery in order to encourage people to ask for cloud receipts.  

According to GAMBLING INSIDER, in Taiwan, cloud receipts amounted for 31.6% of all electronic receipts last year, according to the Ministry of Finance (MOF).  

The Ministry wants this figure to rise to 38% by the end of this year and feels this can be achieved by persuading lottery players.   

The MOF aims to do this by increasing the number of prizes for the July-August lottery and will make it exclusive to only cloud receipt holders. 

It will increase the number of NT$500 ($17.24) prizes and also introduce a brand-new NT$800 prize.

GAMBLING INSIDER mentions, the Ministry amended the Uniform Invoice Award Regulations to increase prizes. The changes are set to begin as soon as the March-April lottery takes place. 

In late February, the Ministry announced its desire to increase prizes and that these would only be available to those who hold cloud receipts.  

The number of winners for the NT$1m prize will also double from 15 to 30, while winners for the NT$2,000 prize will rise by 1,000; bringing the total to 16,000. 

The increase of winners for the NT$500 is set to be made next; the prize is given out 600,000 times on a regular basis.
