(SDN) — Congratulations!
A super lucky bettor in Pagadian City, Zamboanga del Sur, won last night Grand Lotto 6/55’s whopping Php298.77-million jackpot.
In a message to reporters covering the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), Corporate and Planning Department OIC-Manager Agnes Salgarino Ibera said the lone winner guessed correctly the winning combination in the 6/55 draw on Saturday, March 27, 2021.
Here’s the winning numbers that carried the huge jackpot — 38-35-11-22-39-47.
Ibera said 18 punters nearly shared the jackpot as they got five of the winning numbers. Each of them will get Php100,000.
Each four correct numbers, she added, is worth Php1,500 which will go to 827 bettors or bets. A total of 18,751 bets will get Php60 each for three correct numbers.
In the companion draw, nobody won the Php60.89 million jackpot carried by Lotto 6/42 — 38-25-32-09-10-04.
Thirty-six bets are entitled to receive Php24,000 each for five correct numbers; 1,615 will get Php800 each for four correct numbers.
Meanwhile, here’s where parts of the lotto revenue go to sustain the charity agency’s assistance:
The PCSO Charter mandates that for every peso revenue from its gaming operations 55 percent goes to Prize Fund, 30 percent to Charity Fund, and 15 percent allocated for Operating Fund.
It’s lotteries include, among others, Lotto, Keno, Instant Sweepstakes, Small Town Lottery (STL), Digit games, ScratchIt Cards, etc.
The PCSO is currently headed by Chairman Anselmo Simeon P. Pinili and Vice Chairperson and General Manager Royina M. Garma. (✓)
