A bettor from Batangas has claimed the more than P69-million jackpot prize in the Mega Lotto 6/45 draw of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO).
The PCSO assistant general manager for Gaming Sector, Conrado Zabella, said the winner is a 55-year-old businessman from the province.
The winner got the winning combination 07-09-12-20-21-25 through Lucky Pick.
Zabella said the winner has been betting in lotto for 10 years.
The winner, he added, plans to put additional capital to his existing business, help his poor relatives and finance the education of out-of-school children.
“The PCSO always wishes lotto winners to spend their winnings wisely, invest in good businesses, save some in the banks, for their children’s education and future,” Zabella said.
He added that the PCSO wishes the winners to also give a part of the jackpot to charity.
The winner received his prize check at the charity agency main office in Mandaluyong City (Metro Manila) on Tuesday.
