The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office uses the following payout system in calculating 6/45 prizes.
Please be aware and familiar with the jackpot schema for Mega Lotto 6/45
-6 winning numbers: Initial Jackpot Prize of Php 16,000,000.00* -5 winning numbers: Second Prize (Up to Php 70,000.00)* -4 winning numbers: Third Prize (Up to Php 2,000.00)* -2 winning numbers: Fourth Prize (Php 20.00)
*PCSO determines the actual prizes based on total sales and number of winners for the current 6/45 draw (pari-mutuel). The TRAIN Law also requires PCSO to deduct 20% tax from Megalotto winnings above Php 10,000.00.
If no one wins the jackpot in a particular MegaLotto 6/45 draw, the prize amount is carried forward into the next MegaLotto 6/45 draw.
If there is more than one jackpot winner, the Jackpot prize will then be divided equally among all the winners.— PCSO
