At least two winners luckily picked the lucky numbers for the Ultra Lotto 6/58 jackpot prize worth P1,180,622,508.
The winners came from the provinces of Legazpi City in Albay and Borongan in Eastern Samar. They are all self-picked numbers which mean they did not use the “lucky pick” system of betting wherein the machine will randomly decide the numbers.
This was posted on the Facebook page of PTV television network.
This brings us to wonder if two unknown people are really connected. There is some connection between two strangers that different people can each do similar things at the same time such as this, betting similar self-picked numbers.
Both of the winners will each get P472,249,003.20 because of the 20-percent tax mandated by the new TRAIN law.
