Megalotto System Bets – Learn How to Increase the Odds 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 generates several combinations of your chosen numbers.

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

A total of seven (7) combinations are generated in System 7 because a bettor who picks this option would need to pick seven (7) numbers. In System 8, on the other hand, 28 combinations are created because the bettor will have to mark a total of eight (8) numbers out of the numbers 1 to 45.

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 mark 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 picked are automatically paired with each of the remaining 40 digits in the bet slip, generating a total of 40 six-number combinations.

Please note that your overall ticket cost will be much higher in system bets because of the higher number of combinations you will place your bet on. The total ticket cost shall be PhP 20 multiplied by the number of combinations produced.
