A lone bettor from Batangas bagged the P5.94 million jackpot prize in Saturday night’s Lotto 6/42 draw.
In an advisory Sunday, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) said the lucky bettor guessed the winning combination of 08-15-11-23-36-33.
The ticket was purchased in Taal, Batangas.
The bettor can claim the check at the PCSO main office in Mandaluyong City upon presentation of the winning ticket and two identification cards.
Lotto winnings of over P10,000 shall be subject to a 20-percent tax under the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion law. Prizes not claimed within a year shall be forfeited.
This is the third straight day and the fourth time this month that a sole bettor bagged the jackpot prize of the government’s lottery games.
A bettor in Malabon became an instant millionaire after guessing the right six-digit combination of the Mega Lotto 6/45 draw on June 17, winning the P103-million jackpot, while another bettor from Cavite bagged the P9.4-million jackpot of the Lotto 6/42 draw on June 16.
Last June 9, a lone bettor from Las Piñas City got the P12.9-million jackpot of the Lotto 6/42 draw.
The PCSO urged the public to patronize its games to generate more funds for health programs, medical assistance and services, and charities.
