Batangas bettor wins P102M lotto prize
MANILA, Philippines - A lucky player from Lipa City in Batangas won the more than P100-million jackpot of the 6/49 Super Lotto online lottery draw last Thursday, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) said.
PCSO general manager Jose Ferdinand Rojas II on Friday said the lone winner got the number combination 22-11-17-23-43-12 with a total jackpot of P102,947,800.
Rojas said 40 players won the second prize worth P56,000 each after they picked five digits of the six-digit winning number combination.
A 72-year-old retired female employee from Southern Leyte claimed last Thursday her share of the over P299-million jackpot of the 6/55 Grand Lotto online lottery draw last Sept. 12 also won by another player from Bataan.
Rojas said the retiree and the driver from Bataan both got the winning number combination 25-52-26-05-49-17 and they shared the jackpot worth P299,897,496.
The winner from Leyte went to PCSO central office at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) in Pasay City and collected her P149,948,748,00 prize.
The 52-year-old driver from Abucay, Bataan claimed his share of the jackpot last week.
This is the second biggest jackpot of the Grand Lotto since January when two players also for Southern Leyte and Tanay, Rizal split the more than P300-million jackpot.
Most of the lotto winners have picked the winning number combinations from the birth dates and ages of relatives.
