A BETTOR from Valenzuela City bagged the more than PHP5.9-million jackpot prize of the 6/42 Lotto draw on Saturday night, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) announced Sunday.
The bettor guessed the winning combination 26-05-42-32-15-19 and will take home PHPP5,940,000.
It marked the fourth time this month that a lone bettor became an instant millionaire.
A Leyte bettor similarly bagged PHP5.94 million in Thursday’s 6/42; one from Barotac Nuevo, Iloilo pocketed PHP35 million from the Mega Lotto 6/45 on Wednesday; and the 6/42 draw on Oct. 23 also turned a Parañaque City bettor into a millionaire with P32.9 million.
To claim the check, the bettor must go to the PCSO main office in Mandaluyong City and present the winning ticket and two identification cards.
Twenty-five other bettors guessed five numbers and won P24,000 each while 1,348 bettors got P800 each for getting four numbers.
A total of 19,540 bettors won P20 each for guessing three right digits.
