PCSO Lotto 6/42 System Bets – Learn How to Increase your Chances of Winning the Jackpot

You can increase your chances of winning the jackpot through 6/42 Lotto System Bets. This advanced option allows you to pick more than the usual six (6) numbers and generates several combinations of your chosen numbers.

These are the options available if you want to play system bets- 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 generated in System 7 because a player who chooses this option would have to mark seven (7) numbers. In System 8, on the other hand, 28 combinations are generated because the player will have to pick a total of eight (8) numbers out of the numbers 1 to 42.

The more numbers picked, the higher the number of combinations created. Same rule applies in System 9, System 10, System 11 and in System 12.

With regard to System 5R, the player selects five (5) numbers instead of six. These 5 numbers are automatically matched with the remaining thirty-seven (37) numbers, producing 37 six-number combinations in all.
