The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office Launch E-Lotto Test Phase

Listen to this news articleLISTEN TO THIS ARTICLE:

The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) has begun the one-year trial of its E-Lotto digital betting platform that would enable Filipinos worldwide to participate in the daily lotto draws held locally without needing to place their bets at physical locations.

According to the PCSO, the platform offers an enhanced and more convenient way of playing lotto draws and could lead to an increase in the number of Filipinos playing the numbers game from the current count of 2 million bettors per day to around 4 million.

PCSO officials also projected that the E-Lotto system would increase the agency's lotto game revenue from the P55.3bn it has generated from traditional lotto games this year to P70 billion by 2024.

E-Lotto is a significant milestone for PCSO as we embrace the digital era and cater to the evolving needs of our players. With E-Lotto, players can now conveniently place bets, choose their lucky numbers, and win exciting cash prizes from the comfort of their own homes.

Registration Process

The e-lotto digital platform is currently accessible through the site - elotto.pcso.gov.ph via internet browsers. However, the agency has announced that it will launch apps for the platform on iOS and Android in a few weeks. While registering, bettors will need to submit their mobile numbers, where they will receive a one-time password to continue their registration on the site.

Bettors will also be required to choose a personal identification number and complete a know-your-customer (KYC) process where they will need to submit a selfie and a scanned government ID showing they’re over 18 years old.

After successfully registering, the bettor can connect their GCash account to the E-Lotto wallet. In the future, the platform’s cashier section will be extended to other popular payment methods, except credit cards, due to restrictions.

In a bid to encourage the public to try the new digital Lotto system, the agency has increased the jackpot for both the Grand Lotto 6/55 and Ultra Lotto 6/58 games to P500 million each, totalling P1 billion.
