Hi just tonight, the lotto jackpot reached 239 million. This only means that a lot of Filipinos want to be multi millionaires. Anyway at times I do bet in the lotto hoping for some good luck. But unfortunately I have not won big. I have won maybe 20 pesos but that's about it. How about you? how is your luck in this game of chance?

I thought it was only 230 million for this day draw how come its now 239 million? Does it mean still nobody won the jackpot prize of 230 million now it gets even bigger with 239 million pesos? Wow a huge amount of money. No wonder why people keeps on betting. It's too tempting but I don't have luck with that. Congrats to whoever will win that amount. It will defenitely change his/her life..

I'm not sure if someone won already. When I turned on the TV they were just showing some portions and if I'm not mistaken they said 239 million.

Hi, fellow Filipino. I have to say that I don't bet regularly. In fact, I missed the last 3 draws including the draw last Sunday for the local 6/49 Superlotto game; simply because I lack the funds to place my bet. If my memory serves me right, the greatest amount I ever won was 800 pesos or about 16 dollars and this was more than 3 years ago. But if given the chance to win even just a portion of it; say 50 million pesos, I do have several plans lined up for it already. Foremost, my spouse and I would settle all our outstanding monetary obligations with several individuals, credit card companies, pawnshops, and other loan agencies. This would total to approximately 135 thousand pesos, more or less. Next in line would be the segregation of about 5 million pesos for our only child's future education. She's turning 4 this year and she's about to start schooling. This amount includes her daily transportation fares and allowances for meals, aside from the tuition fees and miscellaneous expenses, until she graduates. Of course, a portion of the total winnings will be donated to charities; I guess 5 million pesos will suffice. Then, my husband and I are going to allot about 3 million for the purchase of a parcel of land together with the expenses for building our own house. We will also give 2 million each to my parents and my parents-in-law. I also dream to buy a few hectares of land for the plantation of various fruits and vegetables; and budget for this might reach 3 million. My spouse and I are both interested in putting up our own business so I think we'll finally realize our dream not only for ourselves, but more so for our daughter's future. I guess we're going to enter the food industry and/or the rental business which may cost us a total of 5 million, inclusive of business taxes and licenses. And in either business, we plan to employ the less fortunate ones like the out-of-school youths and unemployed fellowmen, together with people below the poverty line. This way, we could uplift them from their present condition in life and bring hope for their future. About 10 million will be allotted for our (me & my spouse's) prime years. This includes the medical expenses of our parents. Aside from this, I personally plan to have a savings and loan association or cooperative, where anybody could be a member regardless of financial status in life. They may avail of loan facilities, where they will be charged a maximum of 5 percent interest per annum. Oh, I feel great just imagining that I could make a positive difference in my own life, as well as in other people's conditions.

No i don't go betting to any lotto and i am not either taking my chance on this kind of game because it is a game of chance. I don't depend my future on this kind of matter and if anything i do that would not Glorify God, i would not do it. Sorry if i sound weird to you but for me this is simply a gamble. Even if you say you win this money, it would be the start of losing your peace of mind. I am really sure that whoever wins this big amount of money will change his/her life but will take his life away from God. What would a man profit, if he gains the whole world and yet loses his soul.

So I heard the news! 239MPhp! Gosh, that's like quarter half fortune of Beyonce! Lol I was a gambler when I was a kid. My mom had a resto when at that time and her crew always put a bet in Lotto. So I got influenced by them as a kid, you know, you follow the old ones. What a good way huh? Lol It was only 10 bucks per bet, I don't know now though. But wow! With that big amount of money, I could put up my own biggie company. Live my entire life like a queen. But come to think of it, winning the Lotto game with 42 numbers is just a way, way big probability. Very little chances of winning. I guess, it's really a matter of luck. And I'm not really good at gambling and luck. I wish I were though (with luck). Lol But whoever wins the jackpot, I surely hope he/she'll use the money wisely and in great use.

Hello zenki08! I have watched the news today and I was really shocked by the jackpot prize. I am pretty sure many are falling in line now to bet. But honestly, I am not into that and I never tried to bet. I don't think I have that much luck either.

I won once but only PHP800 and it was when I bought the ticket for the first time. Beginners luck maybe. I withdraw some cash in my atm and I realized the amount of my remaining cash was all 7's which is a very weird coincidence. So I just got this inkling that I should and pick some numbers based on my atm receipt number. So I made a quick 6 numbers combination from my receipt and I got all 4 correct! :) Unfortunate though I lost that receipt :(

Around 8pm fast last night, my wife was calling my cellphone only to ask if i bought a lotto ticket, jokingly i said, no because its to late and the file of people is a kilometer long, i visited a lot of outlet and its the same, well anyway its waiting for you so dont forget to buy next time. Yah, thats how people are getting crazy to win that much, and winning none so far.LOL

Yeah the only winning I have in here is balik taya or three numbers match, but beyond that none so far but it is so tempting to bet when the jackpot prize can rose from this level. This is the highest I guess in this year so I guess its better to make this bet from time to time, but not always like a habit.

230 millions? My goodness! My father used to bet in the lotto but he never won so at some point he gave up. I only bet( or betted) once but I have no idea if I won something because I didn't follow the show and never knew the results. I doubt I won something anyway. Luck doesn't run in our family.lol
