Taipei, Dec. 9 (CNA) The winner of the Super Lotto NT$611.45 million (US$21.06 million) jackpot in September has donated NT$70 million to charity, the largest amount given to charity by a winner since 2015, Taiwan Lottery Corp. said Wednesday.

The Taitung County resident, who hit the Super Lotto jackpot on September 17, took home NT$488 million after taxes and has donated 14 percent to charity, said Taiwan Lottery Corp. General Manager Tsai Kuo-chi (蔡國基).

From that amount, NT$10 million was given to the Nantou-based Pu-li Christian Long-Term Care Home of Rehoboth Welfare Foundation (利伯河基金會基督仁愛之家) because a family member had received assistance from the foundation and the winner wished to give back, according to Tsai.

The winner donated another NT$60 million to the CTBC Charity Foundation, which will use the money to help underprivileged families and children nationwide, Tsai said.   [FULL  STORY]
