Golden Lions Films' 1995 pre-Christmas presentation, Salamat sa Lotto, Linggo-Linggo Doble-Pasko!, was released in theaters on November 30 that year. The husband-and-wife tandem of Donna Villa and Carlo J. Caparas produced and directed this production.
Salamat sa Lotto, Linggo-Linggo Doble-Pasko! (Thanks to Lotto, Every Week It's Double-Christmas!) promotes the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office's (PCSO) original Lotto 6/42 lottery game. It features how ordinary persons' lives were changed by the windfall brought about by their wins in the lottery.
EZ2 Lotto, Suertres Lotto, Mega Lotto 6/45, Super Lotto 6/49, and Grand Lotto 6/55 are among the variants of the number lottery game that have been added to the original game.
The ensemble cast of the film is led by Eddie Garcia, Tessie Tomas, Gina Alajar, Maggie de la Riva, Jinggoy Estrada, Boots Anson-Roa, Tonton Gutierrez, and Dawn Zulueta. Joel Torre portrays the role of then-PCSO Chairman Manuel L. Morato, who also appears in the film.
Tonight at 9:00 p.m., the winning combinations for the 6/42 and 6/49 games will be drawn. If you are at least 18 years of age, you might want to take your pick at the nearest betting station before 8:00 p.m., the cutoff time for betting. Who knows? You might be lucky enough to experience the "double Christmas."
