A bettor from Bulacan province bagged the P48-million jackpot prize on Sunday night’s draw of the Super Lotto 6/49, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office said Monday.
The bettor guessed the winning combination 26-24-07-12-01-09. The lucky ticket was purchased in San Jose Del Monte City, Bulacan.
Meanwhile, 34 other bettors who guessed five correct numbers won second prize and will receive P50,000 each while 1,528 bettors will receive P1,200 for guessing four correct numbers and 17,634 bettors won P50 each for guessing three right combinations.
To claim the check, the PCSO advised the bettor to go to its main office in Mandaluyong City, present two IDs, and bring the winning ticket.
The 6/49 Super Lotto is drawn every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday.
Earlier, PCSO said the selling of tickets for the lotto and all other digit games was suspended in Metro Manila from Aug. 6 to 20 during the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).
In an advisory, the PCSO, however, said the selling of tickets will continue in the other regions that are not under ECQ, and that the draws will continue to be held at the PCSO Main Office in Mandaluyong City.
The PCSO urged the public to keep on patronizing the PCSO games to generate more funds for health programs, medical assistance and services, and charities.
