MANILA, Philippines – A car mechanic from Las Piñas City has claimed half of the P60,254,730 lotto jackpot in Wednesday's 6/55 draw.

The lucky bettor claimed a total of P30,127,365 on Friday.

He said he had been placing a bet for 4 years, but the random numbers 29-30-14-28-07-25 were the lucky combination that won him the lotto jackpot prize.

He will split the jackpot prize of more than P60 million with another bettor.

Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) General Manager Atty. Jose Ferdinand Rojas II said the car mechanic plans to spend his winnings on a house and apartment.

The mechanic is single and plans to share his millions with his siblings and relatives, Rojas said. -- Report from Henry Atuelan,dzMM
