Cebu, Philippines - Tickets to the nearly P97 million jackpot MegaLotto 6/45 draw on Friday were bought here in Cebu.
The winner bought a ticket to the lotto outlet near the Bayfront Hotel in Cebu and actually got the correct combination of 40-36-27-03-23-20. The jackpot price is P96,952,481.80. But not all the prizes will go to the winner as it will take 20 percent tax or P19 million. All lottery wins exceeding P10 mil will be taxed at 20 percent.
The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office said it also hit 31 digits and won P40,190 each.
It didn't win the P49.5 million Ultra Lotto 6/58 jackpot that day with a combined 34-44-13-30-29-54. The Mega Lotto runs daily Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; while the Ultra Lotto is on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
