PCSO sets billion-peso lotto prize

Republika

The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) has more lotto games on deck. One of them has a guaranteed prize of P1 billion, while the other is a “birthday game”. The latter is a two-digit game that assures the bettor a chance of winning on their birthday.


PSCO vice chair and general manager Royina Garma said that the games are aimed to give the Filipino betting public new and exciting options. The lotto game, called “Win-A-Billion”, will be available thrice a week. Consolation prizes range from P100 million to P500 million. The jackpot prize of P1 billion is guaranteed.


Garma talked about these with the press during an impromptu briefing during turnover ceremonies of checks amounting to P49 million to the Commission on Higher Education and local government units (LGUs) of Metro Manila.


According to Garma, the PCSO is addressing legal concerns as they wait for the green light for the games.


A minimum bet of P99 is all that’s needed to join the Win-A-Billion game, she said.


The Birthday Panalo digit game, on the other hand, will offer a loyal player a chance to win on their birthday.


Everything is ready, Garma explained. “We’re just waiting for one more legal opinion from the GPPB (Government Procurement Policy Board) of the DBM (Department of Budget and Management). The legal issues are on how we procure the game. Hopefully, we will be able to get a favorable opinion from them.”
