You can now bet on P500 Million with just one click.
The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) started its test run of the new E-Lotto. It is a new online betting platform for Filipinos aged 18 and up in the Philippines and outside the country.
The web betting platform accepts Gcash as a top-up option for those interested in playing E-Lotto games.
According to PCSO General Manager Mel Robles, the E-Lotto could increase lottery sales after a significant drop down during the pandemic due to the lack of physical stores opening.
The E-Lotto platform is reported to be safe as the Pacific Online System Corporation assures future and existing users that the system is safe and secured. According to the POSC, the lotto system is equipped with a security program to protect player data from disclosure.
Moreover, PCSO raised the minimum jackpot prize for their “Handog Pakabog” Christmas special. Both Grand Lotto 6/55 and Ultra Lotto 5/58 will have a minimum jackpot of P500 Million.
Interested users or bettors can register through the PCSO Website. However, a government-issued ID and a phone number are needed to register.
There is also a mobile app available for Android ONLY as of today. The app is an .apk file and can be downloaded from the PCSO website.
