A 74-year-old cancer survivor claimed the lotto 6/42 jackpot prize of P50,796,013 at the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO )Main Office in Mandaluyong City recently.

The winner got the winning combination 26 -14 -11 -08 -07 -22 drawn last February 28.

The lucky winner is an avid patron of the lotto since 1998 and according to him, his winning set of numbers were from combinations of birthdates and birth months of family members.

“Napakatagal ko ng sumusubok sa lotto, simula 1998 ay tumataya na ako. Numero yan ng mga kaarawan at buwan ng kapanganakan namin pamilya. Iyang lumabas na numero ay isang taon ko ng inaalagaan,” the winner said.

“Napakalaki ng utang na loob ko sa PCSO dahil noon pa man ay nakakahingi na ako ng tulong sa aking pagpapagamot kasama na ang operasyon ko sa kidney noon 2017. Maraming-maraming salamat din sa Diyos dahil hindi ako pinabayaan. Ginawa mong kasangkapan ang PCSO para madugtungan ang buhay ko at para mapaganda ang buhay namin ng aking mga anak. Sadyang napakabuti mo Panginoon,” he added.

All prizes above 10,000 are subject to a 20% final tax under the Tax Reform Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) law.

PCSO reminds the public that all winning tickets should be claimed within one year from the conducted draw date, otherwise, it will be forfeited to form part of the PCSO Charity Fund in accordance with the PCSO Charter (RA 1169).
