One winner bagged the jackpot prize of over P111 million in the Grand Lotto 6/55 draw on Monday.

The combination 55-50-06-45-12-40 won for the Grand Lotto 6/55 bettor P111,039,686.

There was no winner in Monday's other major lotto draw, the Megalotto 6/45.

The combination 32-39-26-21-37-06 would have won for a bettor P8,910,000.

The last time a bettor hit the Grand Lotto 6/55 jackpot was on July 12.

The winner won P29,700,000 with the combination 19-32-25-12-17-36.

The lone winner of the P29.7-million Grand Lotto 6/55 jackpot prize on Wednesday, July 12, bought the winning ticket in Pagsanjan, Laguna.

According to the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, the ticket with the winning combination 19-32-25-12-17-36 was bought at the Pagsanjan Public Market in Barangay Biñan in Pagsanjan, Laguna.

Another winner won the Grand Lotto 6/55 jackpot seven days earlier on July 5.

The winner at that time won P58,983,172.20 with the combination 05-01-27-26-44-11.

The PCSO said the winner of the Grand Lotto 6/55 jackpot prize on July 5 bought the winning ticket at a lotto outlet in Asinan in Bugallon, Pangasinan.

The PCSO has shared some dos and don’ts in claiming the jackpot prize.

Interviewed on GMA Integrated News’ Unang Hirit, PCSO senior marketing specialist Romi Sison said jackpot winners should go to the PCSO main office in Mandaluyong with the winning ticket and two valid IDs to claim the prize.

If the winning ticket is lost, Sison said the prize cannot be claimed.

The validity of a winning ticket only lasts up to one year, according to Sison.

She reminded bettors to keep tickets pristine as winning tickets should pass a validating machine. If the ticket got wet, crumpled, or defaced, the machine will not be able to read the number combination and serial number, and thus the winner will not be able to claim the prize.

Sison also advised bettors should immediately sign their ticket upon purchase. Only the person who signed the winning ticket can claim the prize.

In case the winner is unable to claim the prize due to health reasons, his or her representative should present a special power of attorney to claim the prize.

Asked if the PCSO assists winners in terms of financial management, Sison said winners undergo orientation on the best options for handling their money right after claiming the prize.

“Kapag nag-claim po sila ng premyo, pinagsasabihan po sila kung ano po kung saan magandang dalhin ang pera, kung ano po ang dapat gawin,” she said.

(When they claim the prize, they will be advised where to invest their money and what to do with it.) —NB, GMA Integrated News
