Nearly P100 million was won by a lone bettor from Sta. Cruz, Manila after Tuesday (October 9) night's draw.

Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) said the bettor bagged a total of P97, 384, 918.

Alexander Balutan, PCSO general manager, said the winning combination of Super Lotto 6/49 jackpot was 19-32-40-21-05-43.

On the other hand, nobody won the whopping Ultra Lotto jackpot last Tuesday's draw.

The Ultra Lotto winning combination was 12-16-46-03-38-36. The current jackpot has a total of P 1, 026, 264, 340.

Balutan urged people to keep on patronizing their games, saying a huge portion of PCSO's revenue goes to charity. He said many Filipinos in dire need are being helped by the agency.

“PCSO would like to thank the millions of lotto players nationwide for patronizing PCSO lotto games and other PCSO products. With the public’s support of our products, PCSO is able to constantly provide charity services to our ‘kababayans’ nationwide,” he said.

Lotto draws are televised live on PTV 4 at 9 p.m.
