ALL draws for lotto games were temporarily suspended on Sunday and Monday due to typhoon rolly, according to Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO).

“Please be informed that the draw activities scheduled for today, Nov. 1 until Nov. 2 are suspended. Likewise, resumption of draws will be on Nov. 3 after the conduct of systems check and other administrative activities,” PCSO general manager Royina Garma said .

However, selling of tickets in areas not affected by “Rolly” will continue as scheduled, Garma added.

Meanwhile, a lone bettor from Talisay City, Cebu won the P35.5 million jackpot prize in Grand Lotto 6/55 on Saturday.

The winning combination is 18-52-17-02-54-55.

Six bettors who hit five of the number combination will receive P100,000 each while 205 players who got four correct numbers won P1,500 each.

A bettor from Ormoc City, Leyte bagged the P48 million jackpot prize in Lotto 6/42 draw on Saturday.

The lucky bettor guessed the winning combination 26-27-40-21-01-41 while 21 bettors who got five of the correct numbers won P24,000 each.

Winners are advised to go to PCSO’s main office in Mandaluyong City and present their winning ticket and two ID cards.

The PCSO serves as the principal government agency for raising and providing funds for health programs, medical assistance and services, and charities of national character.
