National Lotto 6/42 System Plays – Improve your 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 several combinations of your chosen numbers.
In case you want to try system bets, these are the options you can choose 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 produced in System 7 because a player who marks this option would need to pick seven (7) numbers. In System 8, on the other hand, 28 combinations are produced because the player will need to select a total of eight (8) numbers out of the numbers 1 to 42.
The overall number of combinations increases as the selected numbers increase. The same rule applies for System 9, System 10, System 11 and System 12.
With regard to System 5R, a player marks 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.
Remember that your total ticket cost will be much higher in system plays because of the higher number of combinations you will place your bet on. The overall cost of the ticket shall be PhP 20 times the number of combinations generated.
