How to Play PCSO Lotto 6/42

Before proceeding, keep in mind that you must be at least 18 years old to play.

To play the 6/42 Lotto game, follow these detailed instructions:

  1. Go to an authorized PCSO lottery outlet and look for the PCSO Lotto 6/42 play slip.
  2. Pick a combination of six (6) numbers from one (1) to Forty-Two (42) in each column of the play slip.
  3. If you cannot think of any number combination, choose Lucky Pick (LP) to have the terminal generate the numbers for you.
  4. You can also increase your chances of winning using the 6/42 Lotto System Play. With this option, you can select more than the usual six (6) numbers thus increasing your total number combinations.
  5. For multiple draws, mark the number of consecutive draws you want to join in the Draw panel.
  6. Pay the ticket price and get your generated ticket once done.
  7. Check the 6/42 Lotto Result right after the 9:00 pm live draw to know if you won a prize.

Each 6/42 Lotto combination costs PhP 20, inclusive of 20% Documentary Stamp Tax (DST).

Once done placing your bet, affix your signature at the back of your 6/42 Lotto ticket. Store it in a secure and dry place.

Do not iron, fold, wet or tamper with your PCSO Lotto 6/42 ticket. Tickets are heat-sensitive and they have to be machine-validated before you can claim your prize.

If the selected 6-number combination in your ticket matches the officially drawn 6-winning number combination you win the jackpot prize. However, if more than one player picks the same winning 6-number combination, the jackpot will be divided equally among the jackpot winners.

Lotto 6/42 System Plays – Learn How to Improve your Odds of Winning

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.

If you want to try system bets, 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.

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

The total number of combinations increases as the picked numbers increase. The same rule applies for System 9, System 10, System 11 and System 12.

With regard to System 5R, a player chooses only five (5) numbers and—for the sixth number—pairs these off with each of the remaining thirty-seven (37) numbers, generating a total of 37 six-number combinations.

Please note that the higher the number of combinations, the higher the overall bet cost will be. The overall ticket price is PhP 20 times the number of combinations created.

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