Two lucky bettors will share the P13 million jackpot prize of the Mega Lotto 6/45, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) said Wednesday.

During Monday night’s Draw (February 4), two bettors from Las Piñas, and Laguna won the Mega Lotto jackpot.

The winning combination was 23-12-05-06-17-29, with a total jackpot of P13, 301, 011.

The winning tickets, PCSO said, were purchased at outlets in Talon 5, Las Piñas City, and Los Baños, Laguna.

When the 20 percent TRAIN law tax is deducted from the jackpot prize, each of them will get a total of P5, 320, 404. 4.

The lucky bettors, as per the agency, must go to PCSO’s head office in Mandaluyong City to claim their cheques. Both of them should present two IDs.

The agency has urged the public to keep on patronizing PCSO products, saying a large portion of its revenue goes to charity.

Bettors may visit PCSO’s official website: www.pcso.gov.ph for winning combinations and updates.
