Each Super Red Envelope costs NT$2,000, according to Taiwan Lottery.

In addition to the seven NT$20 million top prizes, Taiwan Lottery said, the Super Red Envelope scratch card also provides 10-second prizes of NT$2 million plus a Benz Mercedes GLA180 sports utility vehicle (SUV) 2023 edition and 850 third prizes valued at NT$1 million each.

Speaking with reporters, Taiwan Lottery board member and spokesperson Huang Chih-yi said that in celebration of the Year of the Rabbit, the number of prizes offered by the Super Red Envelope scratch cards will surpass 5.89 million, with an aggregate jackpot of NT$12.7 billion, smashing the former record.
