EVEN President Rodrigo Duterte has joined the lotto craze, his top aide said yesterday.

Special Assistant to the President Bong Go said the President placed his bet for the Ultra Lotto 6/58 game as the jackpot reached P849 million.

Go bared that the President used 18 combinations for the draw and two more combinations for the 6-58 lotto draw.

He said that in case the President wins, he will donate part of the prize to the Malasakit Centers. Duterte has been patronizing the lotto for the last five years, Go said.

Duterte’s daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, also has placed a bet for the lotto draw.

The lotto prize money is the biggest in recent history, followed only by the highest Grand Lotto 6/55 jackpot P741 million won by an overseas Filipino worker in 2010.
