The PSCO Lottery Draw is a Philippine television game show produced by the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO). It airs daily (except Christmas, New Year, and Maundy Thursday to Easter Sunday) on the People’s Television Network (PTV) since March 8, 1995, and involves the PCSO workforce consisting of more than 2,000 employees. The program consists of a drawing of both parimutuel and fixed payout lottery games, sweepstakes games, and since November 15, 2017, it added the centralized draws of the Small Town Lottery for the provinces that do not conduct their own local STL draws.

Before every draw, the day begins with the airing of a clip in which the blowing machines, called “Mega Gems”, and the balls used in each game are inspected to ensure that everything is fair and nothing is concealed in ted of a neutral set of people not connected with the PCSO. The Mega Gem loads the balls from the loading bays to the draw chamber, after which the blower starts to mix the balls. In the number lottery games (excluding the Power Lotto), the machine draws six numbers one-by-one and is inserted into the inner left loading bay. In machines used in the 2D Lotto and the digit lottery games, each number/digit in the combination is drawn from its own chamber.
Once a ball is drawn, it is locked into place by slats placed over the pipe leading from the drawing chamber. Once the necessary number of balls has been picked, the Mega Gem is turned off. The PCSO Lottery Draw currently hosts a total of nine games, each with its own combinations and mechanics of play.
- Lotto 6/42 is the flagship lotto draw, first introduced on March 8, 1995. The game was initially introduced in Luzon, with a separate game for “VisMin” (Visayas and Mindanao) geographical regions as a single unit. The two draws were later combined into a nationwide one in November 9, 2004. As the name states, a six-number combination is chosen from a lot of numbers from 1 to 42. To win a prize, at least three of one’s chosen numbers must match with those of the six winning numbers. The odds of getting all six winning numbers, and thus the jackpot, are 1 in 5,245,786. Draws are held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
- Mega Lotto 6/45 was introduced on May 17, 1997, and a more improved version of the 6/42 draw and is also introduced as a nationwide one. As the name states, a six-number combination is chosen from a lot of numbers from 1 to 45. As with 6/42, at least three of one’s chosen numbers must appear among the six winning numbers to win a prize. The odds of getting all six winning numbers are much larger at 1 in 8,145,060. Draws are held on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
- Super Lotto 6/49 was introduced on July 16, 2000, and increases odds and makes winning more difficult than the previous two, this time with a lot of numbers ranging from 1 to 49. Draw mechanics are the same. The odds of winning are now higher at 1 in 13,983,816. Draws are held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.
