Lotto 6/42 System Bets – Increase your Chances of Winning the Jackpot

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.

These are the choices available in case 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 created in System 7 because a player who selects 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 pick a total of eight (8) numbers out of the numbers 1 to 42.

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

With System 5-Roll, the bettor will only need to pick five (5) numbers. The remaining (unmarked) 37 numbers will be matched with the 5 selected numbers. This produces a total of 37 combinations.

Keep in mind that the higher the number of combinations, the higher the overall ticket cost will be. The total ticket cost is PhP 20 times the number of combinations generated.

Refer to the table below for more information on overall ticket cost per Philippine Lotto 6/42 system bet.
