A strange incident .. an imaginary number of "lottery" winners in the Philippines

In a strange incident of its kind that caused a sensation in the Philippines, 433 people won the jackpot in the lottery, amounting to 4 million dollars.

This is the largest number of people who have ever won a major lottery prize in the Philippines, according to local media.

The winning combination of numbers last weekend was a series of numbers that were all multiples of nine.

The Philippine Senate minority leader, Coco Pimentel, called for an investigation into the "suspicious" findings. In the lottery, participants choose 6 numbers (between numbers 1 and 55) to win the jackpot, and all 6 player numbers must match those officially announced.

"These lotteries are licensed by the Republic of the Philippines, so we need to maintain the integrity of these slot games," Pimentel said while calling for an investigation into the unusual lottery result.

On Sunday, the director general of the Philippine Charity Lottery Office, Melquiades Robles, sought to reassure the public, saying that "the withdrawal of winning numbers cannot be manipulated."
