Lucky bettor from Luzon wins P741-M Grand Lotto jackpot

MANILA, Philippines?The losing spell in the Grand Lotto 6/55 ended on Monday night when an extremely lucky bettor from Luzon bagged the P741-million jackpot by betting on the winning combination 11-16-42-47-31-37.

Lottery gods must have smiled on Monday night because someone beat the 1-in-29 million odds, a feat that had proved elusive for at least six months since this streak began.

The jackpot at P741 million was the biggest in the country?s history.

Liza Gabuyo, PCSO assistant general manager, said the bettor picked the combination, standing to win the pot tax free.

It took 86 draws before a bettor won the jackpot.

The previous biggest jackpot was posted in February 2009, when the pot for the 6/49 Super Lotto game reached P347 million. Two lucky bettors picked the same combination to split the top prize.
