P142-million Super Lotto jackpot goes to lone bettor
MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – A lone bettor won the P142-million jackpot in the Super Lotto 6/49 draw on Sunday night, May 12.
The winning combination was 25-31-07-28-18-27, for a prize of P142,668,428.80 before taxes. The winner bought the lucky ticket from an outlet inside a mall in San Lazaro, Manila.
The Ultra Lotto 6/58 jackpot prize of P72,169,131.40 was also won by only one bettor, from Olongapo City, Zambales. The winning combination was 06-17-04-26-08-15.
Both winners from Manila and Zambales claimed their checks on Tuesday, May 14, according to the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO).
The winners are both males, with one a bachelor and the other a family man.
Sunday's jackpot is far from the biggest prize in lotto history. In October 2018, two people divided the P1.18-billion Ultra Lotto 6/58 prize after almost 8 months of no bettor winning.
Jackpot prizes can be claimed at the PCSO headquarters in Mandaluyong City. – Rappler.com
