A 29-year-old jobless woman from Pangasinan bagged the P44.2 million jackpot of the 6/45 Mega Lotto draw of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) held late last month.
The lucky bettor claimed her prize only early this month.
She got her winning combination from Lucky Pick (computer generated) last April 29, the same day she hit the jackpot.
The winner said she plans to use her prize to buy a house and save some for her child’s future needs.
PCSO General Manager Jose Ferdinand Rojas 2nd said he learned that the woman has been living with her husband, a jeepney driver, for almost four years and she intends to also use some of her prize for their wedding.
Rojas turned over the prize check to the winner on May 6, at the main office of the national lottery agency in Mandaluyong City (Metro Manila).
