A bettor from the province of Iloilo became the latest millionaire from the government's lottery games, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

In an advisory Friday, Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) general manager Melquiades Robles said the bettor's winning combination of 36-07-19-26-08-01 of the Lotto 6/42 draw on Thursday night, carried a total jackpot prize of PHP44,070,179.40.

The ticket was purchased in Iloilo City.

Lotto winnings of more than PHP10,000 shall be subject to a 20-percent tax under the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion law.

Prizes not claimed within a year will be forfeited.

Both then will be drawn later via live telecast on PTV at 9 p.m., which can also be accessed through the official Facebook and YouTube accounts of PCSO.

For only PHP20 per ticket, anyone can have the chance to become an instant millionaire as the PCSO urges the public to patronize their games as a large chunk of revenues goes to charity programs.
