Is tonight’s the night for a lucky punter to win the whopping Ultra Lotto 6/58 jackpot, which the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes (PCSO) said may climb to Php900 million?

Morning of Friday, October 5, Florante “Bong” Solmerin, spokesman for the Office of General Manager Alexander F. Balutan, told Radio DZXL the jackpot may reach Php900 million for the October 25 draw.
This after the Tuesday, October 2, draw did not yield a winner of the Php849,578,320 jackpot carried by the combination 30-41-53-04-02-54.
Will the Ultra Lotto continue to elude bettors and reach P1-billion jackpot?
Solmerin also said that under the PCSO Charter, even if the current jackpot reaches Php1 billion or Php2 billion, there is no limit to the prize money as long there is no winner.
So far, he said, Ultra Lotto has already generated Php3 billion sales from the current jakcpot.

When he returned to the U.S. he paid around Php230 million tax to the American government.
Journalist and businessman Miguel Ongpin, a former Night Editor at Manila Bulletin told SDN — Scitech and Digital Newss he was surprised to learn that Ultra Lotto’s prize money Thursday evening will break the historic Php740 million in 2010.
Ongpin was one of the thousands across the country who tried their luck in the draw.

The PCSO lotto draw is being shown every night at 9 p.m. on the government’s People’s Television (PTV) 4.
Ultra Lotto 6/58 for its Tuesday, September 25, draw may yet climb to an estimated Php727-million jackpot, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) said today, Monday.
The projected bonanza from 6/58 is approaching the historic Grand Lotto 6/55 amounting to P741-million pot money drawn on November 29, 2010, which a 60-year-old “Balikbayan” from New York, United States, won and claimed two weeks later.
Dr. Larry Cedro, PCSO assistant general manager for Charity Sector, shared this information in a text message to SDN — Scitech and Digital News.
He said the projected jackpot of Ultra Lotto for the September 25 draw was pegged at Php727 million.
Cedro spoke to DZMM radio morning of Monday, saying winners of PCSO lotteries have a year from the date of the draw to claim their winnings.
Requirements for claiming prize
The PCSO official said advised bettors to immediately sign their tickets at the back and that in claiming a jackpot the winner must present two government-issued IDs.
“Make it a habit that once you bought a (lotto) ticket make sure you signed it at the back.
“We will give the winner one year to claim. Just remember this (lotto ticket) is a thermal paper, so it is a bit sensitive to temperature. So, once you validated that you won, get in touch right away with the PCSO,” said Cedro.
On winners’ security
“(The) security of the winner(s) is part of the PCSO (policy). We assure all our countrymen that we maintain absolute confidentiality. We do not disclose details. You may have noticed that the PCSO only announced where the ticket was purchased as part of the (policy) to protect the identity of the winner,” said Cedro.
He recalled that the winner of the Php741-million jackpot in 2010 bought his Lucky Pick ticket at a duty free shop in Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) in Subic, Zambales.
The winner only visited the country (and got lucky). He added the Grand Lotto winner received all the Php740 million prize without deduction, which he remitted to the U.S. when he returned from his Philippine vacation.
20 percent deduction because of TRAIN Law
Cedro also explained that because of the implementation of the TRAIN Law, PCSO prizes such as the lotto jackpot are now subject to a 20 percent deduction.
He added that the price of lotto tickets also increased from Php20 to Php24 because of the increase in the Documentary Stamp Tax from 10 to 20 percent.
