About PCSO and Lotto

The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office or PCSO is the charity arm of the Philippine government, providing funding for essential health and welfare activities. The PCSO’s primary earnings come from the public’s payment to enter sweepstakes or lotto draws sponsored by the agency.

Its Charter allows the PCSO to allot 30% of its net sales to the Charity Fund, while 55% is allotted to prizes, and the remaining 15% to operations.

Starting with just two beneficiaries – the Philippine Tuberculosis Society and Hospicio de San Jose – the PCSO now has a long list of beneficiaries that include the Red Cross, Blood Bank, National Mental Hospital, Boys’ Town in Marikina, Missionaries of Charity in Cebu, Golden Acres, Tala Leprosarium, Commission on Family Life in Laoag City, Bacolod Boys’ Home in Negros Occidental, Dominican Missionaries’ Stela Maris Nursery, Leprosarium in Zamboanga City, Daughter of Mary, Mother of the Church in Naga City, nutrition centers, rural health clinics, government hospitals, and many others — totaling more than 8,000 beneficiaries at present.

Franchise Fee

How much is the franchise fee to own a PCSO lotto outlet? None, because there is NO franchise fee needed to operate your own lotto stand!

PCSO got its franchise from the Philippine Congress and those interested to operate their own outlets are called “lotto agents.” That doesn’t mean, though, that as lotto agents you won’t have to shell out money.

Approved lotto agents must pay P10,000 as installation fee which goes to the telecommunications carrier and a processing fee of P1,700 which goes to PCSO.

The agent also has to post a cash bond of P500,000 or pay a surety bond of P5,795.37 annually.

The fees include the bet slips and thermal rolls that will be provided regularly to the lotto agent.

How much do PCSO lotto outlets earn?

Lotto agents earn 5% commission per sale.

But the PCSO also requires lotto agents to reach a certain sales quota per month in order for the outlet to continue operating. In Metro Manila, the quota is said to be P300,000 to P600,000 every month depending on the location.

How to Apply to Become a Lotto Agent 

1. The prospective lotto agent must be Filipino and at least 21 years old. Submit a letter of intent with a location map and photos of your proposed PCSO lotto outlet.

2. PCSO will then inspect the proposed location and evaluate potential sales and communication facilities. The site must have significant foot traffic, not prone to flooding, at least 100 meters away from schools, churches, and other lotto outlets, and at least 5 meters away from pawnshops.

4. The applicant pays the processing and installation fee. The surety bond is paid to a PCSO-accredited insurance firm.

5. Training to operate the lotto terminal is then provided to the outlet staff. The one-day training covers basic operations, validation, and selling and fraud prevention, among others.

6. Proceed to PCSO’s main office in Mandaluyong City for outlet provisions. Applicants outside the National Capital Region must pass requirements at their respective provincial district offices.

7. Sign the contract with the PCSO.

    Sir/Madam, how much po income o ilan percent sa lotto franchise? 300k lang ba ang cash bond? wala na iba babayaran pagkatapos ng payment sa cash bond? o kailangan pa ba ng additional fund sa outlet pra maka start ng operations? at refundable ba yung cash bond in case ayaw muna ituloy yung business? thanks.

    1. Maria Teresa Arias says:

      Sir/Mam nagbibigay pa po ba kayo ng franchise dito sa san pablo laguna

    2. Ghemar Seguia says:

      Cash Bond – are security deposits while you are operating the business. Kung wala kang pera, Surety Bond (Titulo ng Lupa) pwedi.. again its a bond… means when you stop the operation, it will be returned to you.
      Income or percentage – basahin nyo po sa taas.
      Addional payment? meron – basahin nyo sa taas.

      Bago po mag comment, sana mag basa muna.. Anjan na po lahat sa taas.

    Sir/Madam
    Refundable ba surety bond or cash bond?
    salamat!

    1. Ghemar Seguia says:

      CASH BOND or SURETY BOND – Parang piyansa po iyan. Para makalabas ang preso, mag deposit ka ng CASH na 300k… kung wala kang pera, pwedi po SURETY BOND (Titulo ng Lupa), pero mas mataas po ang halaga dapat 700k and market value… pag tumakas ang preso at hindo na mag pakita, yung pyansa po (BOND) kukunin ng gobyerto… pag tapos na ang kaso at kulong man or acquitted ang akusado, ibabalik na po ang CASH bond or SURETY Bond…

      In short, habang nag ooperate po kayu ng lotto, ang cash bond nyo po ay nasa pcso, pagn ag sara na kayu, ibabalik na po ng pcso ang cash bond nyo.

  9. Ghemar Seguia says:

    MY CORRECTION TO THE ABOVE STATEMENTS… The Surety Bond for PCSO LOTTO FRANCHISE can be acquired by paying more or less P6,000 annually to the surety bond providers.

  10. FRANCIS M says:

    HELLO PO.. PAG NAG NAI-REMIT NA PO SA PCSO MONTHLY NA KITA, ITATAX PA BA YUNG 5% COMMISSION MO OR WALA NA? AND MAGKANO PO ANG AMUSEMENT TAX NGAYON.. SALAMAT PO

  11. Hermie Sison says:
