It's a little known fact that one of the greatest boxers in the world, Philippino flyweight Manny Pacquiao, owns a lottery outlet.

It is supported and run by the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, which is a charity arm of the government's funding department. The PCSO reinvests its profits back to the public through its healthcare and welfare system.
