Pampanga bettor wins P41-M Mega lotto jackpot

By Justine Rich Talusan

A FIRST time bettor from Pampanga won the Mega lotto 6/45 jackpot of P41,256,521.60 on June 2, 2023 draw with the winning combination 25-15-05-11-09-03.

The female winner said she had never played any lotto games before and just gave it a shot on a whim.

She firmly believes that if one’s luck is destined, God will make it happen.

The Pampangueña claimed her prize on June 8 and expressed her happiness that she can now improve her family’s living conditions and start a business that will serve as a stable source of income.

It took her four times to confirm that she had the winning combination, and when it finally sank in, it made her emotional.

Pursuant to Republic Act 1169, winners have one year from the draw date to redeem their prizes at the PCSO’s main office at Sun Plaza Building, Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City. 

Otherwise, it will result in forfeiture and will form part of the PCSO Charity Fund. Prizes exceeding P10,000 are subject to 20% final tax in accordance with the Tax Reform Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law.
