The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) made the announcement that the housewife is the sole winner of over P401-million prize. Her winning numbers were 02-18-49-07-19-47.
The lucky winner claimed the cheque for her prize at the PCSO Mandaluyong office on July 25, 2022.
The 34-year-old housewife revealed that she had a “lucky pick” that cost her only P20. But it took her 6 years of betting before her luck struck.
“Sabi po ng asawa ko try ko raw po tumaya ng isa lang na lucky pick para maiba naman. Kung suwerte ka talaga mananalo ka,” she said.
While they were filled with excitement after learning that they won the big prize, they were also filled with fear. It took them 2 weeks before they finally decided to claim their prize because they were worried for their safety.
“Mas nauna po yung kaba at takot ko po kesa sa tuwa dahil naisip ko yung kaligtasan namin mag-asawa kaya po inabot ng 2 weeks bago kami nag-desisyon na kuhanin ang napanalunan naming premyo. For our safety na din po,” she explained.
The instant multi-millionaire was grateful to the PCSO for transforming their lives for the better. She admitted she had doubts but when she finally received her cheque, she thanked the Lord for the blessing.
She said, “Kagaya ng ilan, dati hindi po ako naniniwala sa lotto, pero nandito na po ako sa PCSO ngayon kumukubra at hawak ko na ang tseke ng napanalunan ko.”
“Thank God, sa dami ng mananaya isa po ako sa pinagpala. Kaya para sa mga mananaya ng lotto huwag po kayong susukong tumaya,” the winner added.
With her prize, the housewife plans to open a business in Iloilo, donate to the Church and other charitable institutions, and help those in need.
“Bilang pasasalamat po sa Diyos dahil sa biyayang ipinagkaloob niya, magbibigay po ako sa aming simbahan at mag-donate din po ako sa mga charity centers and foundations na tumutulong sa mga kapos-palad,” she revealed.
