I'm searching for a trivia about the Philippines when I discover this news. It happened in 1992. I'm only 10 years old and I'm not aware of this news only now. Pepsi made a mistake to mark a lot of bottle caps with 349 number combination and the winning prize is 1 million. It's for their number fever promo. Close to half a million people got the number 349 combination. Now instead of increasing their money they will lose a lot of money for this case. You can read more about it in this news:
It is already final. The 349 case is closed.The Supreme Court has ruled that Pepsi-Cola could no longer be compelled to pay prizes to the thousands of people, who are holders of the controversial bottle caps with 349 markings and the lower courts nationwid

That is a grave mistake because that made everyone a winner which should not have been the case.
