Manila, Philippines – A 22-year-old call center agent working in Pampanga won the P4.5-million jackpot in the Mega Lotto 6/45 draw last July 2.
The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) said the winner is a resident of Nueva Ecija and placed two “Lucky Pick” bets worth P20. One of them matched the winning combination 22-25-6-30-11-35.
PCSO General Manager Jose Ferdinand M. Rojas II said the winner is going to buy a passenger jeepney for his father, a house and lot for himself, and save the rest.
Rojas said the winner, a working student, started betting on the lotto four years ago.
“We at PCSO are glad because we are able to help the indigent patients not only in terms of their medical and health needs, but in their own little dreams as well through the lotto games,” said Rojas. (Edd K. Usman)
