Will you strike lucky this week?

As of writing (Sep, 19), The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) 6/58 Ultra Lotto sweepstake jackpot prize is at its all-time high since it was started in February 2015.

There have been 89 draws since the last winner in Feb, 16. The last winnings of PHP 332 million were shared between two lucky people. But the Ultra Lotto is now at PHP 650,886,268.00, the highest ever recorded in the lottery’s competition.

The winning combination from the last night’s draw was 04-35-50-08-47-44. As of yet, no winners have come forward to claim the prize.

The jackpots in PSCO’s other 4 lotteries are much lower compared to Ultra Lotto’s.

Grand Lotto 6/55: Php 33,617,236.00
Super Lotto 6/49: Php 38,562,504.00
Mega Lotto 6/45: Php 9,725,107.00
Lotto 6/42: Php 19,073,835.00

PSCO’s newest scheme is lucrative. The jackpot prize starts at PHP50 million and continues to grow when people place bets. It continues to snowball when there are no winners, as the prize money accumulates.

The winning numbers for Ultra Lotto 6/58 are announced on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. Since the first package of the tax reform law, PSCO increased the cost of a single Ultra Lotto 6/58 ticket on July, 8 from PHP20 to PHP24.

Picking the winning numbers is a one in 15 million chance.

But that won’t stop people from trying their luck, as Ultra Lotto’s prize pool continues to reach dizzying heights. It is the second highest lottery amount after the Grand Lotto reached PHP 741.2 million. This was claimed by a winner in November 2000.

Research has shown that the top 6 numbers chosen most often are 6 (12.8%), 13, 15, 22 (all joint at 12.6%), 8 (12.3%) and 34 (12.3%).

Lotto winners have a full year to claim any prizes before the unclaimed money goes back into the pot.

The next draw will be on Sep, 21.
