They all got just five of the six numbers required to win the biggest prize in Philippine lottery history, and will have to be content with taking home P158,760 each, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office said in a statement.
The winning combination for the 6/58 draw, in any order, was 12-16-46-03-38-36. The next draw is on Friday night, with betting stations closing at 8 pm.
Bettors both Filipino and foreigner, however, most likely breathed a sigh of relief. They get to recreate the serpentine lines at lotto outlets across the country and jack up the pot for the Ultra Lotto, which on Tuesday night stood at P1,026,264,340 (about US$18.94 million).
One lucky bettor, however, managed to win the P97-million jackpot in the Super Lotto 6/49 draw on the same night after picking the winning numbers 19-32-40-21-05-43.
The PCSO website says bettors who get five numbers in the 6/58 draw could win as much as P280,000, but the prize money could change based on total sales generated and the number of winners for the particular draw.
