Tondo bettor wins P210M lotto jackpot

A lone bettor from Tondo, Manila bagged the P210 million jackpot of Grand Lotto 6/55 Monday draw.

According to the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), the lucky winner will claim the P210,795,849 jackpot for the winning combination  02-04-06-08-24-01.

The ticket, according to the agency, was purchased at a stall in Manuguit, Tondo, Manila.

Meanwhile, some 132 bettors will get P12,050 each as consolation prize for getting five correct numbers.

The government will automatically get a 20 percent tax from the jackpot under the TRAIN Law amounting to at least P42,039,169.92.

To claim the prize, the lucky bettor must go to PCSO’s main office in Mandaluyong City, and present two valid identification cards.

PCSO spokesperson Atty. Marissa Medrano urged the public to keep on patronizing the agency’s products since a portion of the agency’s revenue goes to charity.

Last May 12, over P140 million jackpot of Super Lotto 6/49 was won also by a lone bettor from Manila, while the more than P79 million jackpot of Ultra Lotto 6/58 was bagged by a bettor from Zambales.

PCSO said the winners of the Super Lotto 6/49 and the Ultra Lotto 6/58 jackpots claimed their winnings at the PCSO main office  in Mandaluyong City  last May 14.
