The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) said Ultra Lotto’s winning combination during Tuesday night’s draw was 12-47-09-06-20-35.

It had a total jackpot of P 111, 451, 917. 60. However, PCSO said no one was lucky enough to correctly guess all the six digits.

Meanwhile, their P106, 160 consolation prize will still be subjected to 20 percent tax as mandated by TRAIN Law.

Nobody was also lucky enough to bag the P47.4-million jackpot of Super Lotto 6/49. Its winning combination was 15-44-21-09-13-30.

There were 11 consolation prize winners during Tuesday night’s Super Lotto draw. Each of them, according to PCSO, will take home P56, 120.

To claim their consolation prizes, the bettors must go to PCSO’s main office in Mandaluyong City and present two IDs so they could get a cheque. They should also bring their tickets.

Royina Garma, PCSO general manager, urged the public to keep on patronizing the products of the agency, saying people in dire need of help will surely benefit from PCSO’s charity programs.
