The Ultra Lotto 6/58 jackpot is expected to reach P164 million during Sunday night’s draw, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) said.
On Friday, PCSO General Manager Royina Marzan-Garma said nobody won the whopping jackpot. The winning combination was 55 – 18 – 01 – 16 – 52 – 03.
The agency said it had a total jackpot of P159, 481, 926.
Seven consolation prize winners, meantime, will get P205, 060 each as they fell a digit short from bagging the whopping jackpot.
PCSO said the consolation prizes of the four bettors will be subjected to 20 percent tax in accordance with the TRAIN Law.
To claim their checks, the agency said bettors must go to PCSO’s main office in Mandaluyong City, and present two IDs. Also, they should bring the winning tickets.
The PCSO general manager urged the public to patronize their products as a huge portion of the agency’s revenue goes to charity.
In addition, Garma said PCSO has started funding the Universal Health Care (UHC) this year.
