Tulfo: Lotto winners must show their faces, reveal their identity


MANILA, Philippines — To dispel doubts amid allegations that the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office’s (PCSO) games are easily manipulated, Senator Raffy Tulfo suggested on Thursday the need to unmask and “advertise” lotto winners.

“Kung pag-uusapan natin dito yung transparency, e dapat ipakita ang mukha ng mga nanalo. Para makita natin na totoo ang mga nanalo at hindi gawa gawa lamang,” said Tulfo in an interview over ANC.


(If we’re talking about transparency, we should show the faces of those who won. This is for us to see if there were real winners.)

Tulfo earlier probed the potential irregularities surrounding PCSO’s lotto games. Also, Tulfo grilled PCSO, leading its General Manager, Melquiades Robles, to admit that one viral photo of a lottery winner posted on the agency’s social media page was altered.

“I-advertise natin ang mga nanalo para matanggal na yung duda ng taumbayan. Hanggat hindi ginagawa ‘yan, nandoon pa rin ang pagdududa ng taumbayan at hindi ko sila masisisi,” said Tulfo.

In the same interview, the senator likewise emphasized the need to ensure the “security” of those who won. With this, he said there’s a need to study “to a certain degree” how the public can easily see who the winners were to dispel doubts about PCSO’s integrity.

Despite allegations that some of its games are manipulated, PCSO assured the public that its commitment to “a transparent, fair and authentic lottery games will never waver and is as strong as ever.”
