Former OFW wins Grand Lotto taking home over P298 million
GRAND LOTTO – A former Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) is the sole winner of more than P298 million jackpot prize in the 6/55 draw on March 27, 2021.
According to the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO), the bettor took home a total of P298,773,641.20 with the winning combinations 38-35-11-22-39-47.
“It took the winner almost three weeks to claim the jackpot prize due to the onset of the Holy Week simultaneous with the declaration of Metro Manila and nearby provinces to be put under Enhanced Community Quarantine by the IATF,” PCSO said.
The bettor was a former OFW and is now working as a government employee.
The lucky winner was able to bet on the lottery when he went to Pagadian City, Zamboanga Del Sur for a “short job-related trip.”
The winner plans to share the prize with his siblings and also donate to the church.
He will also provide assistance to those affected by the pandemic.
