Frequently Asked Questions about 3D Lotto – Everything you Need to Know about 3D Lotto

How to win a prize in 3D Lotto?

You win a prize by playing 3D Lotto in either Straight (Standard) Play or Rambolito Play.

In Straight Play, you choose three (3) digits, one for each column consisting of digits 0 to 9.

If your number combination matches the 3D winning numbers in exact order, you win PhP 4,500.

The Straight/Standard Play is the default play unless you select Rambolito option in the bet slip.

In Rambolito Play, you still receive a prize regardless if your marked number combination does not match the winning numbers in exact order. The downside is, the prizes in Rambolito Play are much less than in the Straight Play.

With Rambolito, you play either Rambolito 6 if your marked combination has no repeating digits, or Rambolito 3 if your selected number combination has one repeating digit.

If your combination matches the 3D results in any order, you win either PhP 1,500 (Rambolito 3) or PhP 750 (Rambolito 6).

3D Lotto tickets, once generated, can no longer be changed. Hence, bettors are advised to check their tickets before leaving the lotto outlet. Players are responsible for checking the information printed on their 3D Lotto tickets.

How much do I win if I match all the 3D winning numbers but NOT in exact order?

You win either PhP 1,500 or PhP 750 but only if you selected the Rambolito option.

You do not win anything in Straight or Standard Play in case your 3D number combination does not match the winning numbers in exact order.

What is Documentary Stamps Tax?

DST or Documentary Stamp Tax is a 20% tax imposed on PCSO lotto ticket prices by the government by virtue of the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion Act (TRAIN Law).

PCSO commenced adding 20% DST on the prices of its tickets when the law took effect in 2018. As a result, 2D (EZ2), 3D (Swertres), 4D and 6D Lotto ticket prices went up from PhP 10 to PhP 12 while the 6/42, 6/45, 6/49, 6/55 and 6/58 Lotto tickets rose from PhP 20 to PhP 24.

Will there be any 3D Lotto draw during Holy Week?

PCSO regularly suspends its lotto draws during major holidays such as December 25 (Christmas), January 1 (New Year), Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Black Saturday, and Easter Sunday. In other special holidays such as December 24 (Christmas Eve) and December 31 (New Year’s Eve), PCSO modifies its draw schedule in such a manner that all draws are finished early in the day.
