A RIZAL bettor from Rizal won the P12.5-million jackpot of the Lotto 6/42 draw on Saturday night.

In an advisory on Sunday, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) said the bettor guessed the winning combination 18-34-33-39-11-36 for P12,537,017.

The ticket was purchased in Taytay.

The bettor can claim the check at the PCSO main office in Mandaluyong City upon presentation of the winning ticket and two identification cards.

Lotto winnings of more than P10,000 shall be subject to a 20-percent tax under the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion law.

Meanwhile, seven others won P24,000 each for guessing five out of the six winning digits; 643 will get P800 each for four correct digits; and 11,342 will settle for P20 each for three digits.

The 6/42 Lotto is drawn every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

Prizes not claimed within a year shall be forfeited.

This is the second time this month that a sole bettor bagged the jackpot prize of the government’s lottery games.

On March 2, a bettor who bought his ticket in Cavite bagged the P8.9-million jackpot prize of the Mega Lotto 6/45 draw.
