MANILA, Philippines - A 44-year-old jobless woman claimed yesterday the P87,697,688.40 jackpot prize in last Thursday’s 6/49 Super Lotto draw.

Her six-digit winning combination was 06-49-32-03-48-14.

Jose Ferdinand Rojas, Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) general manager, said the winner, a single parent, bought P100 worth of tickets.

“The winner has been a lotto fan since 1996,” he said.

Rojas said the winning ticket was bought from a lotto outlet along Roces Avenue in Quezon City.

The winner plans to buy a house and lot, send her sick mother to hospital and pay her debts, he added.

Other details about the winner were kept confidential for security reasons. Last month, a 55-year-old public school teacher from Cabanatuan City won the P136,855,753.20 jackpot prize in the 6/55 draw.
