MANILA – For the second straight day, another bettor became an instant millionaire after winning the PHP29 million jackpot of the Super Lotto 6/49 draw on Sunday night.
In an advisory on Monday, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) said the lucky bettor guessed the winning combination of 36-29-35-16-03-17 with a jackpot of PHP29,073,809.
The ticket was purchased in Marikina City.
The bettor can claim his/her cheque at PCSO's main office in Mandaluyong City and present the winning ticket and two identification cards.
As provided under the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion law, Lotto winnings of more than PHP10,000 shall be subject to a 20-percent tax.
