National Lotto 6/42 System Bets – How to Increase your 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 creates 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).

With System 7, a bettor picks seven (7) numbers which creates a total of seven (7) combinations. In System 8, the bettor chooses eight (8) numbers, producing a total of 28 combinations.

The more numbers picked, the higher the number of combinations produced. Same rule applies in System 9, System 10, System 11 and in System 12.

In the case of 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 5-Roll, the 5 numbers you have selected are automatically partnered with each of the remaining 37 digits in the bet slip, producing a total of 37 six-number combinations.

Remember that the higher the number of combinations, the higher the total ticket cost will be. The overall ticket cost is PhP 20 times the number of combinations produced.
