2 more win PCSO on-line lottery

MANILA, Philippines - Two more on-line lottery aficionados have joined the millionaires' club after winning P16 million and P14,381,452 in Super Lotto 6/49 and Mega Lotto 6/45 draws of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) on April 3 and 4, respectively, bringing the winners this year to 37.

Of the four major PCSO lotteries, Grand Lotto 6/55; Super Lotto; Mega Lotto; and Regular Lott 6/42, Mega Lotto is still the easiest to be won with 20 jackpot winners from Jan. 1 to April 4, 2011. Grand Lotto has three winners, Super Lotto with nine, and Regular Lotto producing 4.

Lawyer Jose Ferdinand Rojas II said the two jackpot winners on April 3 and 4 bought their lucky tickets in Sta. Maria, Pangasinan (6/49) and in Muntinlupa City (6/45).

He said the winning numbers are 31-22-09-26-06-08 for Super Lotto and 17-33-37-29-12-22 for Mega Lotto.

"We in the PCSO are very glad that our lotto games continue to help a number of Filipinos realize their dream when they get lucky and win in lotteries. Through the bettors' bets the PCSO is also able to fund its medical and health programs for sick indigent countrymen," said Rojas, concurrent manager of Publicity and Public Relations Department (PCSO-PPRD).

He reiterated that out of every peso bet 55 centavos are going to the Prize Fund, 30 centavos for Charity Fund, and only 15 centavos are channeled to PCSO's Operating Fund.

Lawyer Lauro Patiag, manager of Internal Audit Department (PCSO-IAD), earlier noted from his personal analysis that PCSO's lotto games has about two to three million loyal patrons who are mostly likely to place bets every day during the draws. (Edd K. Usman)
