Super Lotto 6/49

MANILA, Philippines – A retired soldier from Nueva Ecija has claimed the jackpot of the 6/49 Super Lotto Jan. 11 draw, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) announced yesterday.

Jose Ferdinand Rojas II, PCSO acting chairman, said the lone winner picked the winning digit 06-13-19-31-34-38 with a jackpot of P160,083,688.

Rojas said the soldier, 50, availed himself of the early retirement program of the Armed Forces of the Philippines to devote his time to his family. The winner, who has been a lotto bettor since the online lottery game began in 1995, is married and has a child.

Rojas said the player bet P40 for two lucky pick tickets.

The third lotto millionaire for this year plans to buy a house and lot, invest in a business and share his winnings to his siblings and parents.
