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 numerous combinations of your chosen numbers.

In case you want to try system bets, these are the options you can select 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 bettor who marks this option would have to pick seven (7) numbers. In System 8, on the other hand, 28 combinations are generated because the bettor will need to pick a total of eight (8) numbers out of the numbers 1 to 42.

With regard to System 5R, you only pick five (5) numbers and if your 5 numbers match the winning combination, you automatically win the jackpot.
