The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes office or PCSO has released the official requirements for applying and getting a Philippine Lotto franchise outlet.
We've given the step by step procedure below just in case you want to know how to apply for a lotto outlet franchise today.
First, the applicant should fill-up the On-Line Lottery Application Form available in the PCSO office. The form will have as attachments the sketch or location map of the proposed lotto outlet site, and a photo of the building of the proposed lotto outlet site.
The applicant must then wait for PCSO to conduct inspection and technical evaluation of the proposed outlet site.
The applicant will then be informed of the evaluation result after a few days, to a week. If approved, the applicant will need to pass more requirements as listed in the approval letter to be sent by PCSO.
After submission, PCSO shall notify the applicant if the communication facilities needed for the lotto outlet is already available for installation.
Upon receipt of that letter, the applicant must now initiate the fabrication of the lotto franchise booth, and wait for the PCSO terminal installation.
