Lotto 6/42 System Bets – How to Improve your Odds of Winning the Jackpot

6/42 Lotto System Bets allow players to pick more than the typical six (6) numbers per draw, thereby increasing their chances of winning the jackpot.

The system bets available in 6/42 Lotto are System 7, System 8, System 9, System 10, System 11, System 12 and System 5-Roll (System 5R).

A total of seven (7) combinations are produced in System 7 because a player who picks this option would have to select seven (7) numbers. In System 8, on the other hand, 28 combinations are created because the bettor will have to mark a total of eight (8) numbers out of the numbers 1 to 42.

In short, more and more number combinations are created as the picked numbers increase. This same rule applies to the rest of the remaining system plays.

In the case of System 5R, you only select five (5) numbers and if your 5 numbers match the winning combination, you automatically win the jackpot. This is because in System 5-Roll, the 5 numbers you have selected are automatically paired with each of the remaining 37 digits in the play slip, producing a total of 37 combinations.

Please note that your overall bet cost will be much higher in system plays because of the higher number of combinations you will place your bet on. The overall price of the ticket shall be PhP 20 times the number of combinations produced.
