A 47-YEAR-OLD hog raiser from Ibaan, Batangas, claimed the jackpot prize of P29,700,000 for the Grand Lotto 6/55 drawn on January 21, 2023.

The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), on Monday, said the new millionaire claimed his price with the winning combination 03-44-10-13-23-11 at the PCSO Main Office in Shaw Blvd., Mandaluyong City recently.

For most of his life, the Batangueño hog raiser shared that he has been a diligent lotto player for almost ten years. He hopes to turn his misfortunes around that is why he never ceased to patronize the PCSO Lotto games.

“Nakakapagod po, umikot na ang buhay ko sa pagbababuyan. Mahirap, mabaho. Kung hindi sisipagan walang pambiling pagkain. Pinangarap ko talagang yumaman para magbago naman ang aking pamumuhay. Maraming salamat po sa Panginoon at dininig po ang aking panalangin,” he said.

He revealed that his combination came from the system’s “lucky pick,” and he was very grateful upon learning that the combination came out.

“Bale ‘pag ako po ay nataya ng lotto eh ako po ay may alagang dalawang kombinasyon tapos kasunod po neto ay lucky pick na. Sa tagal ko po inaalagaan ang aking numero ay nakakagulat po na ang tumama pa ay yung lucky pick. Nakita ko po sa isang post sa social media na ang tumama daw ay taga-Ibaan, kaya tsinek ko ang aking tickets. Napaiyak po ako sa tuwa ng makita ko na iyong numero ko ang lumabas. Maraming salamat PCSO sa pagbibigay ng pagkakataon sa amin na kami’y maging milyonaryo,” he gratefully said.

As a father of three, he added that he will utilize his winnings in preparing for the future of his children. “Gagamitin ko po ang aking napanalunan para sa kinabukasan ng aking pamilya.

Maglalaan po ako para sa educational plans ng aking mga anak at mamumuhunan sa pagnenegosyo,” the emotional millionaire said.

The lottery winner made an appeal to the gaming public to continue patronizing the PCSO games.

“Sa mga kagaya ko po na tumatangkilik sa lotto, tuloy-tuloy lang po tayo. Malay ninyo kayo na po ang susunod. Kung hindi man po pinalad, nakatulong naman po tayo sa mga kababayan nating nangangailangan,” he added.

Under the Tax Reform Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law, prizes above 10,000 are subject to 20% final tax.

All winnings should be within one year from the date of the draw. Otherwise, the same would be forfeited as part of the charity fund according to the PCSO Charter (Republic Act No. 1169).

Lotto results and other details of the PCSO games, products, and services can be viewed on the PCSO Official Website, PCSO Facebook page, and PCSO GOV Channel on YouTube.

For security reasons, the PCSO withholds the identity of the winners.
