The NT$3 billion (US$96.5 million) Super Lotto jackpot that opened on April 23,
scooped up by a single ticket, turned out to have been won by a group of four office employees in central Taiwan, reports our Chinese language sister paper China Times.
The lucky winners are colleagues at a privately-owned company in Taichung who collectively spent NT$300 (US$9.80) buying three sets of numbers. One of the tickets hit the biggest prize in Taiwan’s lottery history, said Huang Chih-I, general manager of the Taiwan Lottery Company.
The huge jackpot in the bi-weekly lottery had accumulated as 29 draws had passed with no winning 7-number combination in the 15 weeks running up to April 23. [FULL STORY]
