Lotto 6/42 System Bets – Ways to Increase the Odds 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 produces numerous combinations of your chosen numbers.

These are the options available if 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 produced in System 7 because a player who chooses this option would have to pick seven (7) numbers. In System 8, on the other hand, 28 combinations are produced because the player will have to select a total of eight (8) numbers out of the numbers 1 to 42.

In short, more and more number combinations are created as the marked numbers increase. This same rule applies to the rest of the remaining system bets.

With regard to System 5-Roll, you only select five (5) numbers and if your 5 numbers match the winning combination, you automatically win the jackpot. This is because in System 5R, the 5 numbers you have picked are automatically partnered with each of the remaining 37 digits in the bet card, creating a total of 37 combinations.

Note that your overall bet cost will be much higher in system bets because of the higher number of combinations you will place your bet on. The overall price of the ticket shall be PhP 20 multiplied by the number of combinations created.

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