National Lotto 6/42 System Plays – Learn How to Improve the Chances of Winning

You can improve 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 numerous combinations of your chosen numbers.

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

In System 7, a player picks seven (7) numbers which generates a total of seven (7) combinations. With System 8, on the other hand, the bettor marks a total of eight (8) numbers producing a total of 28 combinations.

In short, more and more number combinations are generated 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 have to mark five (5) numbers instead of the regular six-number combination. The remaining unmarked numbers in the play slip (37 in all) will be partnered with the 5 numbers you selected, thus producing 37 six-number combinations in all.

Remember that your overall ticket cost will be much higher in system plays because of the higher number of combinations you will bet on. The total ticket cost shall be PhP 20 times the number of combinations generated.
