(SDN) — Holy Cow!

Some guys were born lucky. Perhaps, super lucky.

Take for example a punter in Iloilo City, Iloilo, in the Visayas. He or she holds the ticket that captured Grand Lotto 6/55’s Php401-million jackpot in the draw on Saturday, July 9, 2022.

The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) through Corporate and Planning Department Assistant General Manager (AGM) Agnes Salgarino Ibera announced Grand Lotto’s surrendering its whopping jackpot to the lone bettor.

She said the Saturday night draw of 6/55 yielded the winning combination of 02-18-49-07-19-47 which carried a total prize amounting to Php401,186,804.80 after months of no winner in its thrice weekly drawing.

Saturday night’s lucky streak started with Lotto 6/42 which surrendered its Php5.9-million jackpot to a lucky punter in Naic, Cavite, who correctly guessed the winning numbers such as 27-18-26-13-02-03.

AGM Ibera said the PCSO traced the 6/55 and 6/42 winning tickets to Iloilo City and Naic, respectively.

If you are wondering where a portion of Lotto revenue is going, wonder no more. It goes to PCSO’s charity programs, projects, and services, including the Medical Access Program (MAP), among others.

Two days earlier, on July 7, the charity agency produced two instant millionaires. Bettors in San Jose, Occidental, Mindoro, and Tanay, Rizal, jointly and at the same time won Lotto 6/42’s over Php34.8-million jackpot.

They will share equally the prize money.The two lucky punters both correctly guessed the winning combination, which is 09-10-42-08-13-41, which offered a total of Php34,838,186.80.

The four latest PCSO jackpot winners will join the unofficial Lotto Instant Millionaires Club number over 2,000.

In the 6/55 draw, 71 tickets matched five of the winning numbers, giving them a consolation prize worth Php100,000 each.

Winners of PCSO lottery games have a year to claim their prizes from the time of the draw. If not claim, the prizes will be forfeited and reverts to the charity agency’s coffers.

The PCSO allocates 55 centavos from each peso of revenue to its Prize Fund; 30 centavos to Charity Fund; and 15 centavos for Operating Fund. (✓)
