Mega Lotto System Bets – How to Improve the Odds of Winning the Jackpot

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

The available system plays in 6/45 Lotto are 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 generated in System 7 because a player who picks this option would need to mark seven (7) numbers. In System 8, on the other hand, 28 combinations are generated because the player will have to mark a total of eight (8) numbers out of the numbers 1 to 45.

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

With regard to System 5R, the player chooses five (5) numbers instead of six. These 5 numbers are automatically combined with the remaining forty (40) numbers, generating 40 six-number combinations in all.

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

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