Before I end this article,  I think its better to let you know that I don't own any lotto outlet nor do I work for PCSO. The information that I'd relay was solely based on our effort in doing the researched on franchising lotto outlet which we initial plan to establish in Zamboanga City. So why did we not push through despite we got all the information we needed? The reason was that we were stucked on who can manage the lotto outlet as one of the criteria is the day to day remit of profit(all of the investor are all OFW, if only its monthly profit remit then its ok for one of our relatives can do it). And the other reason is that initially we thought our site is ideal but out of luck it did not pass the site criteria of PCSO.
