Online Takarakuji (Lottery)

The service to purchase Takarakuji online started on 24 October 2018.

The Takarakuji counter is opened from 9 am to 5:40 pm on weekdays only at designated kiosks and Mizuho Bank; therefore, it was difficult for me to purchase Takarakuji.

Today, I can purchase Takarakuji online via official website or apps for 24/7 throughout a year.

I can not select lucky number ticket but if I don’t buy it, I cannot win.

I bought three sets (1 set for 10 tickets) of Summer Jumbo (1st prize JPY 500 million or USD 5 million) and two sets of Summer Mini (JPY 10 million or USD 0.1 million).

The winner number was announced on 21 August 2020 and I regret to know that I didn’t win.

I only won complementary prize which is one ticket worth of value for each set.

I spent a total of JPY 15,000 (USD 150) and won only JPY 1,500 (USD 15). Boo hoo

One of benefits of online purchasing is saving me from going to the counter to cash it.

If I win – hopefully, one day – the system will automatically remit the amount in the registered bank account when the amount is greater than JPY 10,000 (USD 100) or I can request for remittance.

In addition, I can get points from each purchasing amount and I can use the points to purchase Takarakuji tickets.

I plan to buy Halloween Jumbo (winning prize for JPY 300 million or USD 3 million) and Halloween Mini (winning prize for JPY 10 million or USD 0.1 million) which are scheduled to be sold on 23 September 2020.

Hopefully I can hit a jackpot one day.
