Invoices that match the last seven digits of the first-prize numbers will earn the holders NT$40,000, and those with numbers that match the last six digits will win NT$10,000.
Other prizes are NT$4,000 for invoices with the last five digits of the first-prize numbers, NT$1,000 for invoices with the last four digits, and NT$200 for those with the last three digits.

The MOF said two receipts issued by convenience stores had the winning number for the special prize of NT$10 million in the latest uniform invoice lottery draw.
The two winning receipts for that special prize were for purchases of NT$150 or less — one for coffee and other beverages that cost NT$148 at a 7-Eleven convenience store in Miaoli, and the other for the purchase of a NT$150 game time card at a Hi-Life convenience store in Kaohsiung, the ministry said.
Meanwhile, one of the receipts for the grand prize of NT$2 million was issued at a FamilyMart in Miaoli for an NT$89 purchase of food and beverages, while the other was for NT$536 worth of groceries bought at a PX Mart supermarket, according to the MOF.
The September-October lottery prizes can be claimed between Dec. 6, 2021 and March 7, 2022, the MOF said, on announcing the winning numbers for the two-month period.
Prizes of NT$1,000 and under can be collected at 7-Eleven, FamilyMart, OK Mart, Hi-Life, Pxmart, and Simple Mart convenience stores.
For prizes up to NT$40,000, the invoices can be redeemed at credit cooperatives across the country, while First Commercial Bank, Chang Hwa Bank, and the Agricultural Bank of Taiwan Corporation can cash all prizes, including those over NT$200,000.
The uniform invoice lottery, which is drawn every two months, was created to encourage consumers to collect their sales receipts, as part of the MOF’s efforts to prevent tax evasion by retailers.
