MANILA — Isn’t he lucky?

A 29-year-old jobless man won the P82.3 million jackpot prize in the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office’s Super Lotto 6/49 draw last August 16.

The lone winner from Zambales province bagged the P82,316,564.00 after placing a P60 bet. He has been into betting for three straight years.

His winning numbers  05-09-11-14-22-29  were derived from the birth dates of his family members.

Claiming his prize at the PCSO main office in Mandaluyong City on Wednesday, the married winner told PCSO  vice chair and General Manager Jose Ferdinand Rojas II, that he would invest in a business and buy a house and lot.

The rest of the prize money, he said, would be spent and saved for his only child’s future.
