Lotto jackpotAs of this writing, the 6/55 Grand Lotto jackpot is almost P630M, more than half a billion pesos. The biggest stake in the history of lottery in the Phils. and I believe even in Asia. As the pot climbs up, people are lining up, braving the heat and the rain just to place their bets. Dreaming that the pot will give them the life they want. The lotto fever has hit both the rich and the poor, ¬†even know politicians are taking chances, well it’s quite a big pot to be taken for granted.

Why is it so hard to get the right combination?

The odds of winning the Grand Lotto are one in over 28 million combinations or 28,989,675. Meaning, if you hit the jackpot, you must be really lucky. According to my son, “You have more chances of getting by a lighting than winning the lottery jackpot.” Talk about sarcasm. As for me, I guess I have more chances to lose weight than being a multi-millionaire. LOL!

This Saturday will be the 85th draw of the Grand Lotto 6/55. Will you be the lucky one?
