A 50-year-old laborer from Cavite hammered his way to the millionaire’s list as he claimed the jackpot prize of Php46,011,957.80 for the Megalotto 6/45 drawn last April 22, 2024.

The newly minted millionaire, a loyal lotto player for over twenty years, picked the winning numbers 33-17-40-09-42-20, drawing inspiration from his family
members’ birthdays.
