Philippine Lotto 6/42 System Plays – Ways to Increase your Odds of Winning the Jackpot

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 several combinations of your chosen numbers.

These are the choices 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 player chooses seven (7) numbers which produces a total of seven (7) combinations. In System 8, the bettor picks eight (8) numbers, generating a total of 28 combinations.

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

In the case of System 5R, the bettor will only need to pick five (5) numbers. The remaining (unselected) 37 numbers will be matched with the 5 chosen numbers. This creates a total of 37 combinations.

Please remember that the higher the number of combinations, the higher the total bet cost will be. The overall cost of the ticket is PhP 20 times the number of combinations generated.

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