Woman Nearly Won Ultra Lotto 6/58 Jackpot Of Php1 Billion But She Bet On The Wrong Game

So close, yet so far...

The Ultra Lotto 6/58 Jackpot is now at Php1 billion, as it reaches a high never seen before. The lottery has been unclaimed since Feb, 16 this year. One woman came so close to taking home everything. But alas, she came so close, yet… so far.

May Crisolo shared on her Facebook the unfortunate turn of events when her aunt got the winning 6 numbers for the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office’s (PCSO) Ultra Lotto 6/58. Sadly, this lady bet on the wrong lotto game.

May wrote “It’s like money that became stone” in Filipino.

May told Coconuts Manila through a Facebook message that her aunt Marivic Reynon called her niece and couldn’t stop crying. After she saw the picture, everything became clear.
 
Marivic had placed her bet on Oct, 4 at the SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City for the Super Lotto 6/49 game. The winning numbers were 36-30-01-09-06-22 and would have netted a prize of Php90 million. She got 01, 30 and 36 spot on. And it probably felt bad when she saw she missed out on the other three numbers. She managed to win Php270 for her correct guesses.
 
However, she must have felt even worse when she realised that the numbers on her ticket, 01-12-27-30-36-49, was the winning combination for the Ultra Lotto 6/58. The numbers were drawn in this order: 01-30-27-36-49-12.
 

Too many lottos?

It’s understandable why she may have gotten confused, since there are four different lotteries to enter – Grand Lotto 6/55, Super Lotto 6/49, Mega Lotto 6/45, and Lotto 6/42. 

As of writing, May’s Facebook post has 6.7k likes and over 16.5k shares.

The comments were sympathetic to Marivic falling short of her original target.

Eunice Cabusas Capuli commented that, “This hurts way more than a breakup”.
