Navigating the Wins: A Comprehensive Guide to Claiming Your STL Prize

The thrill of matching the winning numbers in an STL (Sweepstakes Lotto) game offered by the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) is undeniable. But the real excitement kicks in when it’s time to claim your prize! This in-depth guide equips you with all the essential information and step-by-step processes to ensure a smooth claim for your STL winnings, whether it’s for STL Pares (two-digit), STL Swertres (three-digit), or STL Lotto (four-digit).

Understanding the STL Prize Claiming Process:

The prize claiming process for STL varies depending on the amount you’ve won and the specific game you played. Here’s a breakdown of the two main scenarios:

  • Prizes Up to ₱10,000: These smaller prizes can be conveniently claimed at any authorized PCSO Lotto outlet. This applies to all STL game variations (Pares, Swertres, and Lotto).
  • Prizes Over ₱10,000: For larger prizes, the claiming process differs based on the STL game you played:
    • STL Pares & Swertres: You’ll need to visit a designated PCSO Branch Office.
    • STL Lotto: You can claim your prize at either a PCSO Branch Office or the PCSO Main Office in Mandaluyong City.

Claiming at Authorized PCSO Lotto Outlets (₱10,000 and Below):
