TWO lotto aficionados will share the P1.18-billion Ultra Lotto 6/58 prize, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) announced.
PCSO General Manager Alexander Balutan said the winning combination was 40-50-37-25-01-45 and they were bought from the following outlets: Lucky Circle Corp. in SM City Tahao Road, Legazpi City, Albay. Bet type: Self pick, system 9; and Ma. Myra C. Locando, Limbauan St., Bgy. H, Borongan, Eastern Samar. Bet type: Self pick, standard.
The jackpot for the Sunday draw reaching P1,180,622,508, was the biggest in Lotto history in the country.
The Ultra Lotto 6/58 jackpot, based on PCSO draw results, has been up for grabs since Feb. 18, 2018 with a starting jackpot of P49.5 million, until the prize blew up to more than P1.18 billion, the highest in PCSO history.
This is the second time this year that two people won the Ultra Lotto 6/58 prize. Last February 16, two bettors shared the P331-million prize.
Ultra Lotto draws are held every Tuesday, Friday, and Sunday. To join, one must select 6 numbers from 1 to 58 or play Lucky.
Balutan has advised the two lucky winners to use their money wisely and productively.
Aside from the two jackpot winners, 100 bettors will each get P169,930 for picking five winning combinations correctly.
Balutan reminded all lucky winners to keep their tickets, sign it, as whoever holds the winning ticket is the winner.
