[quote=“ac13”]Do only the long receipts with lottery info on the back count? I saw short receipts without lottery info also with an 8 digit no…
And do only receipts purchased within the relevant 2 months qualify?
Only the receipts purchased within the relevant 2 months qualify.
The new short receipts are also eligible. However, this was my most recent experience with the new short receipts:
I went into a 7-11 to redeem my winning ticket from May-June by purchasing $200 worth of items. In the past, there were no problems with the long reciepts–simply print my info on the back, including my ARC number.
However, the clerk informed me that with the new short tickets, the clerk MUST scan the barcode on a Taiwanese ID to enter the winner’s information into the system. Although ARCs have a barcode, apparently they don’t contain the information that is required (the manager of the 7-11 confirmed this). So, the clerk ended up using his own ID to process my transaction.
So, if you’re redeeming a short receipt to purchase items/add to an icash card, instead of getting cash at the post office, it’s more of a hassle.
If someone else has had a different experience (which wouldn’t surprise me), I’d love to hear it.
