In a statement issued earlier, PCSO reminded winners to secure their tickets and write their names and signature on the back.

Winners must also ensure that their tickets are not wrinkled, folded, or even have a single tear on them.

“The bar code must not be damaged, as it is an essential component of the ticket for validation,” PCSO said. “The lotto terminal should be able to read the bar code,” it added.

PCSO noted that under the Tax Reform Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law, a 20 percent tax will automatically be deducted from the jackpot prize.

Under the PCSO charter, winnings should be claimed within one year from the date of the draw. Otherwise, the same would be forfeited to form part of the PCSO Charity Fund.

With the public’s continuous support, PCSO can provide charity services to individuals and institutions in need of financial and medical assistance.
