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.

Meanwhile, the jackpot prize for the Megalotto 6/45 has reached PHP220 million Friday, after nobody got the winning combination of 07-05-02-25-41-15 on Wednesday night.

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.
