Been here for nearly 3 years so far. My max has been $1000 (1 receipt)

My ex gf however managed to win NT$200.000 6 years ago…

Im wondering what is the most any of you have ever won on it? or if its just a load of sh*t and just a few smaller prizes get won?

10k, but I got taxed 22% so only actually picked up 7,800NT.

200 x 2

mine was 200 X 2 too.

if you are interested in an easy way to check your receipt btw, this may help:

$4000 in total from one batch of receipts, many moons ago. I’ve since given up bothering to go through them. My mother-in-law enjoys it though, I give her ours.

I won 5800NT a while ago.

I’m so bored this CNY that even though I could check this month’s numbers today, what will I do tomorrow?

Zero. I always give mine to charity.

But you don’t like to talk about it

I collected them years ago, and in one year of collecting only managed to win 200NT, after that I’ve decided its not worth the extra clutter and trouble collecting them, and I have since stopped collecting.

The chance of winning anything more than 200nt is so remote that it’s not even worth the trouble.

Obviously you don’t check them yourself. That’s what wives/girlfriends/SOs are for.

Minus 20,000NT if I count the hours I have spent looking at the numbers and multiply those hours by the average wage.

Me too. I used to collect them, but I always missed the announcement of the winning numbers; plus I couldn;t stand the clutter of the receipts. I drop them in those donation boxes.

Back when I taught English in Taiwan from 2001-2004, I won $1,500 once and $200 a couple times.

Currently in Taiwan visiting family here over CNY, just checked a bunch of receipts, nothing, wasted 30 minutes. I bill my divorce clients $150 USD per hour, so I guess I lost $75.00.

What a huge waste of time. I won 1,000 once and had to stand in line at the post office for 1/2 hour to get the money. Now, I just toss them. Not worth it. But I hear now that 7-11 can pay up to 1,000 but not sure.

I have done it twice.

Won 3 x $200 the first time, then 0 the second time (although the second time i had 5 times as many receipts).
