One of the most queued place/booth is a Lottery booth. Seeing this, I become interested in putting up my own Lotto outlet. I made a research about it and here is what I found.
First, the hearsays and misconceptions:
• You need half a million pesos to become an agent.
You don’t have to raised this much. I think as little as P50,000.00 would do (depends on location, however. In Metro Manila and urban cities the minimum cost could be P100K). The P500K was an optional bond, you may put a bond, that way you will not be paying a sort-of annual insurance and this bond will also earn interest. You can get back your bond when you decided not be an agent anymore or opted to pay for the annual insurance premium.
• There is no more available slot.
This misconceptions or heard-on-somebody else information was on the internet 2 to 3 years ago, but if you look how every now and then new outlets are being built, you would know that that was not true.
• You need to have connection or bribe PCSO employee/officer to get one.
A friend of mine got an approval without bribing anyone.
