Lotto 6/45 System Bets – Learn How to Increase the Odds of Winning the Jackpot

6/45 Lotto System Bets allow players to pick more than the usual six (6) numbers per draw, thereby increasing their chances of winning the jackpot.

The system bets available in 6/45 Lotto are System 7, System 8, System 9, System 10, System 11, System 12 and System 5-Roll (System 5R).

With System 7, a bettor marks seven (7) numbers which generates a total of seven (7) combinations. In System 8, the bettor picks eight (8) numbers, creating a total of 28 combinations.

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.

In the case of System 5-Roll, you only choose 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 picked are automatically combined with each of the remaining 40 digits in the bet card, producing a total of 40 combinations.

Please note that the higher the number of combinations, the higher the overall bet cost will be. The total cost of the ticket is PhP 20 multiplied by the number of combinations produced.
