For the third consecutive draw, a lone bettor, this time from Batangas province, has become a millionaire overnight after winning the P29.7-million jackpot of the Grand Lotto 6/55 on Saturday.
The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) advisory Sunday said the bettor guessed the winning combination of 03-44-10-13-23-11.
The ticket was bought in Ibaan town.
The prize can be claimed at PCSO’s main office in Mandaluyong City upon presentation of the winning ticket and two identification cards or other documents.
The Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion law imposes a 20-percent tax on lotto winnings of more than P10,000.
The Grand Lotto 6/55 is drawn every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.
It was the sixth time this month that the jackpot was hit by a lone bettor while another was shared by two bettors.
The PCSO is urging the public to patronize its games to generate more funds for health programs, medical assistance and services, and charities
