MANILA, Philippines — A lone bettor from Luzon won the P18. 6 million Megalotto 6/45 jackpot prize during Monday night’s draw, according to the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO).
The winner bought a ticket at a lotto outlet in Malibay, Pasay City and picked the combination 19-37-26-13-2-17.
The Luzon bettor, who has yet to claim the prize, will bag a total of P18, 599, 063.40.
Meanwhile, no one won the P270 million jackpot prize during Monday’s Grandlotto 6/55 draw with the winning combination of 17-52 -24 -26 -37 -45.
The jackpot prize for the Wednesday’ 6/55 draw is P295 million.
Last week, a 62-year-old farmer from Butuan City claimed his winnings amounting P28.5 million after hitting the jackpot in last month’s 6/49 draw.
The Butuan winner, who picked the numbers 01-38-37-12-47-09, plans to donate a portion of his winnings to the church, PCSO general manager Jose Ferdinand Rojas who handed him the check, said.
The bettor said he would also use the money to pay his debts and buy parcels of land for farming.
