Daily, many Filipinos are hopeful of winning any of the major lotto games of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO). Each has a multi-million jackpot prize. PCSO has 5 major lotto games: 6/58 Ultra Lotto, 6/55 Grand Lotto, 6/49 Super Lotto, 6/45 Mega Lotto, & 6/42 Lotto. They have different draws.

One of the biggest jackpots won was more than PHP 1 billion. This was with the 6/58 Ultra Lotto game. There were several draws with no winners and the jackpot just kept growing to the megalithic size of PHP 1 billion. 

The country saw one of the longest lines queuing up to every PCSO retail outlet and it was the biggest news around. All walks of life trooped down the PCSO-authorized vendors with some celebrities, and popular personalities being spotted in the queue. Finally, on the 14th of October 2018, two winners were able to match the winning number combination. 

The two bettors’ identities were kept confidential by the PCSO and each got PHP 472 million. One of the winners — who hailed from Samar — gave away “balato” to the city hall employees and the tricycle drivers in his town.
