The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) on Thursday announced that a lone bettor from Valenzuela City bagged the P128.3 million Grand Lotto 6/55 jackpot prize.


PCSO said that the solo lotto player who bought the ticket containing the right winning combination of 02-12-22-27-03-29 bagged the total jackpot prize of P128,397,144.80 in the Grand Lotto 6/55 drawn on Wednesday night, Sept. 23.
Meanwhile, PCSO said that a total of 43 lotto players who guessed five correct numbers got P100,000.00 each. A total of 1,653 players who got four correct numbers won P1,500.00 each and 23,419 who got correct three numbers also won P60.00 each.
For selling the winning ticket, PCSO said that the lotto agent gets an additional one percent (1%) of the jackpot prize or a maximum one million pesos as the agent’s prize commission.
PCSO reminded as provided in the TRAIN law, lotto winnings above P10,000.00 shall be subject to 20% final tax, thus the P128.3 million jackpot prize will be less than 20% when claimed by the jackpot winner.
In claiming the jackpot prize, PCSO reminded that the player must proceed to the PCSO main office in Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City for validation of the winning ticket and must present two valid government- issued Identification cards.
The Grand Lotto 6/55 game is drawn every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday and telecast live via PTV-4 at 9:00 pm simultaneously with other jackpot bearing and digit games.
