A 69-year-old retired school teacher from Cavite province was added to the roster of the country’s instant millionaires after she bagged the P33-million Mega Lotto 6/45 draw of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO).
According to the office of Jose Ferdinand Rojas 2nd, PCSO vice chairman and general manager, the lone bettor chose the winning combination 04-05-13-16-30-39 from birth dates of family members.
Rojas said the bettor, who has been betting in lotto for 15 years, only put in P20 to win the jackpot prize.
The winner, he added, plans to donate to charity organizations, invest in business and help her siblings.
Rojas congratulated the winner as he handed the prize check to her at the national lottery main office in Mandaluyong City (Metro Manila) on Monday.
