MANILA, Philippines -- Keep those fingers crossed. No one got the lucky numbers for the 6/45 Mega Lotto draw Friday night, possibly raising Monday night?s prize to between P116 million and P118 million.
The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office said it was expecting the previous P111-million jackpot to go up by P5 million to P7 million because of the expected frenzied betting for the coveted pot.
"We have an initial projection that the 6/45 Mega Lotto pot will reach at least P116 million to P118 million by the next draw date," PCSO spokesperson Dr. Larry Cedro told the Philippine Daily Inquirer in a text message Saturday.
Friday night's winning six number combination was 09-23-02-36-14-35, the key to the P111,384,077.40 jackpot.
PCSO's total sales for the 6/45 Mega Lotto was P50,677,200, he added.
