MANILA, Philippines - The jackpot prize in the 6/55 Grand Lotto online game is expected to hit P134 million in Wednesday’s draw.

Nobody won the jackpot during last Monday’s draw, the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) said yesterday.

However, Jose Ferdinand Rojas II, PCSO general manager, said at least 13 lucky players won the second prize of P150,000 each after getting five digits of the winning combination 37-05-36-22-02-03 for the jackpot of P126,095,540.40.

Ticket sales almost doubled from the average of P25 million to P45 million for last Monday’s draw.

This is the fourth time since January that the jackpot of the Grand Lotto breached the P100-million mark.
