When claiming the check, the bettor must go to PCSO’s main office in Mandaluyong City and present the winning ticket and two identification cards.
The PCSO has been urging the public to patronize its games so the office can generate funds to be used in providing assistance to Filipinos who are in need. PCSO has various initiatives such as health programs and medical assistance or services, among others.
Among PCSO’s key programs is the Medical Access Program designed to augment the medical needs of Filipinos nationwide – particularly hospital confinement, chemotherapy, dialysis, and post-transplant medicines.
