On February 11, 2020, the PCSO 6D Lotto game was drawn for the entire Philippines. For several years 6D Lotto is an exclusive game for Luzon players. However, PCSO General Manager Royina M. Garma stated that “it (6D Lotto) should also be enjoyed by the players in Visayas and Mindanao and to raise additional revenues. The 6D Lotto game is a favorite among PCSO’s games mainly due to the nine (9) chances of winning with just one (1) combination”.
Aside from the First Prize minimum guaranteed amount of P150,000.00, a player can win P40.00 matching either the first 2 or last 2 digits of the winning combination, P400.00 matching the first 3 or last 3 digits, P4,000.00 matching the first 4 or last 4 digits and P40,000.00 if they match the first 5 or last 5 digits of the winning combination in exact order as consolation prize. The First Prize snowballs as long as the winning combination remains un-matched by any 6D Lotto player. The 6D Lotto is drawn every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 9 in the evening and aired live over People’s Television Channel 4 simulcast through PCSO’s Facebook and YouTube accounts.
How to Play the 6D Lotto
In a play slip, select one (1) number from 0 to 9 in each of the 6 columns in any panel. Or simply tell the lotto teller your numbers and how much you want to play. You can also go for the Lucky Pick (LP), if you do not have any numbers in mind.
Ticket cost may vary based on the play amount marked. Mark the desired play amount on the AMT column. Minimum play amount is PHP 12.00 per 6 number combination but you may play more than Php12.00 per combination.
To play the same numbers for consecutive draws, just mark the number of draws you want to play in the DRAW panel. You can play 2 up to 6 consecutive draws.
If an error is made, mark the “VOID” box to indicate that the board is cancelled.
FIRST PRIZE amount starts at PHP 150,000.00 and if there is no FIRST PRIZE winner for a given draw, the FIRST PRIZE pool amount will be carried forward to the next draw.
If there is more than one (1) FIRST PRIZE winner, the pool amount shall be divided among such winners in proportion to their bets. Each FIRST PRIZE winner is guaranteed to win PHP 150,000.00 for each bet of PHP 12.00.
