A lone bettor from Misamis Occidental won the Lotto prize of P5,940,000 during the draw last Saturday night, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) said.
Lotto 6/42’s winning combination was 12-21-03-05-15-20, with a total jackpot of P5, 940, 000.
The winning lotto ticket was purchased at an outlet in Oroquieta City, Misamis Occidental.
Twenty percent tax will be deducted from the jackpot prize in accordance with the TRAIN LAW.
Alexander Balutan, PCSO general manager, said 2019 is a lucky year for lotto bettors.
“2019 is indeed a lucky year for our lotto clients,” citing consecutive winners produced by the agency.
In January this year, PCSO has produced a total of nine millionaires.
