The total jackpot of P227,359,058.40 of Ultra Lotto 6/58 of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) remains up for grabs while 15 bettors won over P120, 000 each after getting five digits of the winning combination during Sunday night’s draw.
The winning combination of Grand Lotto was 17 – 54 – 22 – 11 – 45 – 26. Each of the 15 consolation prize winners will get P121, 580 each, the PCSO said
TheSuper Lotto 6/49 with P15.8-million jackpot also yielded no winner. Its winning combination was 29 – 07 – 03 – 25 – 46 – 10.
There were 26 consolation prize winners for the Mega Lotto, and each of them will take home P23, 890 each, the agency said.
Because of the TRAIN Law, PCSO said a 20 percent tax will be automatically deducted from the consolation prizes.
To claim their consolation prizes, the bettors must go to PCSO’s main office in Mandaluyong City, and present two IDs so they could get their checks. They should also bring their winning tickets with them.
PCSO General Manager Royina Marzan-Garma urged the public to keep on buying their products, and think of it as giving money to charity with a chance of becoming a millionaire.
She said the PCSO has started funding the government’s Universal Health Care program this year. (Jel Santos)
