GAMBLING IN TAIPEI
AFTER PILING A MASS OF NTD, WHAT BETTER WAY TO ENJOY YOURSELF THAN FUNDING YOUR LOCAL BAMBOO UNION CHAPTER THROUGH SLOT MACHINES?
Gambling outside of the yellow sign government establishments in Taiwan is illegal. While unenforced and prevalent, the illegal gambling facilities are indeed mafia-owned and run so just know you're directly funding organized crime by going. At least with prostitution you can directly fund/help the disenfranchised women who service you...
🎲 WAYS TO GAMBLE IN TAIPEI
The Receipt Lottery
Each business that pays taxes generates lottery numbers on their receipts that are drawn every other month for prizes up to $10,000,000 NTD ($340K USD).
So keep all of your receipts and you just might take the easiest route possible to becoming a Taipei Dragon! Check your numbers simply by googling 'Taiwan receipt lottery.'
Government Scratchcards, Sports Betting, and Lottery Tickets
Gambling is perfectly okay if the government profits from it, right? You see there's a big difference between giving money to the government and giving money to organized crime. Government exploits EVERYONE. The mafia only exploits those they can reach. So make the right choice and fund mass exploitation today!
Mafia Gambling Dens
These places are tricky and often hard to spot. What they tell you when you go in is that the games are 'just for fun' and the tokens you buy are non-refundable.
However this is not true. If you win you simply give the cashier your tokens and then wait out back for somebody to hand you an envelop of cash.
Claw Machines/Night Market Games
Most night markets have a pretty big selection of fun little games you can play for small prizes. Our personal favorite is Chinese Pinball. You put in $10 NTD and can wager a reward based on how many pinballs you bet. If your ball hits the right slot you win more balls and get to keep playing!
