Mega Lotto 6/45 System Bets – Ways to Improve your Chances of Winning the Jackpot

You can improve your chances of winning the jackpot through 6/45 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 in case 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 marks seven (7) numbers which produces a total of seven (7) combinations. In System 8, the player chooses eight (8) numbers, generating a total of 28 combinations.

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

In the case of System 5-Roll, you only pick 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 marked are automatically matched with each of the remaining 40 digits in the playing card, producing a total of 40 combinations.

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