The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) announced on Saturday that the winning combination was 33-27-18-42-03-23 and that the bettor will receive PHP83,757,220.

The ticket was purchased in Santa Rosa City, Laguna.

With the winning ticket and two identification cards, the bettor can claim the check at the PCSO main office in Mandaluyong City.

Meanwhile, 53 others received PHP32,000 each for correctly guessing five of the six-digit winning combination; 2,982 bettors received PHP1,000 each for four of the six digits; and 35,812 bettors received PHP30 each for three of the six digits.

On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, the Mega Lotto 6/45 is drawn.

This is the third time this month that a single bettor has won the jackpot, with the others taking home PHP5.9 million in the 6/42 draw.

A bettor from Urdaneta City, Pangasinan, won on December 4, while a bettor from Dasmarias City, Cavite, won two days earlier.

The lotto jackpot was won by eight bettors in November, three of whom were from the National Capital Region.

Lotto winnings of more than PHP10,000 are subject to a 20% final tax, according to the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion law.

PCSO General Manager Royina Garma has repeatedly urged the public to continue supporting their games because a large portion of the revenue is donated to charitable organizations.

The PCSO is the primary government agency in charge of raising and distributing funds for health programs, medical assistance and services, and charitable organizations.
