Hello Kitty supports gambling29 October, 2010 by Chad
During his last trip to Taiwan, I asked KT to bring me back some scratch and win cards on the logic that a winning ticket meant that I could afford to travel over to collect my prize. Much to my surprise, he returned with a couple of these Hello Kitty lottery tickets!
This is an actual Sanrio licensed product (or at least it claims to be). Sanrio stand is that they will not offer their characters for anything deemed inappropriate but I guess Hello Kitty supports gambling.
As you can see from the photo above I actually ended up winning $200. Unfortunately $200 in New Taiwan Dollars is only approximately SGD$8. The prize didn’t cover the TWD$300 cost for both tickets, let alone a flight. Notice Hello Kitty mocking me in the picture.
