Taiwan lottery to launch new game

Taiwan Lottery plans to launch a new game with a top prize of NT$15 million (US$510,300) on April 23, according to a report by CNA.

The game is called “Lottery Double Win” and tickets will cost $50 a bet. Players choose 12 out of 24 numbers. Individuals whose numbers match either “all” or “none” of the computer-generated numbers will hit the jackpot, the report said.  

The maximum payout is NT$15 million, so in cases where there are three or more winners, they will have to split the total prize amount of NT$45 million (US$1.5 million).  
According to an official from Taiwan Lottery, the design of the “Lottery Double Win” is similar to that of “Lotto 539,” which also costs NT$50 per ticket and picks winners every day from Monday through Saturday. However, with twice the amount of the top prize and the minimum prize payout of NT$100, the new game is expected to attract new customers.
