What do you mean --are they entitled to the winnings?
Someone, a Kano tourist or a Tibetan bloody Monk or an African tribesman can buy and play Lotto if they have the money. Who says a foreign player cant win? Or get the prize? How utterly ridiculous. If someone in the Philippines decides, ok Today I will buy a Lotto ticket and it wins, well --unless they are wanted criminals, illegal overstayers or something to that effect, why CANT they get the prize?
I am in the Philippines legally, have been cleared as a tourist or visitor or businessman --whatever. I am within my visa period. I have broken no laws. I bought a Lotto ticket and it wins. Why shouldnt I be allowed to collect?
Give me a brek will you. As to anyone saying you MUST be Filipino in citizenship to claim the prize, I have to agree with Grace. What a load of absolute rubbish. If you have the winning ticket--then YOU have the winning ticket. Troll, who tells you such rubbish and why are you so silly as to beleive it?.EVERYBODY WHO PLAYS LOTTO--when you buy your tickets have you EVER seena sign or been told by the Lotto seller, NO FOREIGNERS ALLOWED ?
No you have not because that is crap. Anyone in the PI , citizen or touris can buy and win and claim 1st prize. That anyone thinks other wise is screwed in the head.
Go on--go to the Lotto outlet now. Show me ANYWHERE it says foreigners cant claim ?
