Lone bettor becomes instant multi-millionaire, bags more than P100-M of lotto pot-prize


A lone bettor suddenly became a bigtime multi-millionaire after he single-handedly hit the more than P100 million jackpot prize in the Megalotto 6/45 draw last Friday night, June 17, 2022.

According to Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), the total prize money hit by the bettor was P103,269,281.60.

The winning ticket was bought in Malabon, Metro Manila with the winning combination numbers of 10-12-02-27-03-18.

According to PCSO, the winner can claim his prize money at the PCSO main office in Mandaluyong City with his winning ticket and two identification cards.

However, if the winner does not claim his or her prizes within one year of the draw date, they will be forfeited under R.A. 1169. The selling agent will be paid a reward commission of 1% of the jackpot amount up to PHP 1 million.

According to TRAIN law, lotto prizes exceeding PHP10,000 are subject to a final tax of 20%. The jackpot will be deducted by 20% once the winner has claimed it.

Moreover, 122 others received ₱32,000.00 each for correctly guessing five of the six-digit winning combination; 5,268 bettors received ₱1,000.00 each for four of the six digits; and 64,507 bettors got ₱30.00 each for three of the six digits.

Meanwhile, no one won the P49,500,000.00 top prize in the Ultra Lotto 6/58 draw. The resulting numbers were 26-06-43-40-12-04.

On Saturday, June 18, will be the another Grand Lotto 6/55 ball with a prize pool breaches to P205 million.
