PCSO Lotto 6/42 System Bets – Ways to Increase the Odds of Winning

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 creates numerous combinations of your chosen numbers.

In case you want to try system plays, these are the options you can select from- System 5-Roll (System 5R), System 7, System 8, System 9, System 10, System 11 and System 12.

In System 7, a player chooses seven (7) numbers which produces a total of seven (7) combinations. With System 8, on the other hand, the player picks a total of eight (8) numbers generating a total of 28 combinations.

To sum it up, more and more number combinations are produced as the picked numbers increase. This same rule applies to the rest of the remaining system bets.

In the case of System 5R, you only pick 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 picked are automatically partnered with each of the remaining 37 digits in the play slip, producing a total of 37 combinations.

Remember that the higher the number of combinations, the higher the total bet cost will be. The total cost of the ticket is PhP 20 times the number of combinations generated.

The following table indicates the number of combination as well as the corresponding ticket cost for every system bet.
