The winning numbers came from a chapel, and to the chapel part of the winnings will go.

A national government employee working in Manila took home on Friday more than P72 million in winnings from the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office headquarters in Pasay City.

The 51-year-old father of two was the lone winner of the Superlotto 6/49 draw on July 31.

When he went to pick up the check for P72,709,153.20 at PCSO on Friday morning, he told officials that the winning combination he bet on—02-28-10-07-38-08—“came from a chapel” under construction in his home province.

PCSO media coordinator Joseph Muego said the man was probably referring to the building permit number of the chapel.
