6/45 Megalotto System Plays – How 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 generates numerous combinations of your chosen numbers.
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 marks eight (8) numbers, producing a total of 28 combinations.
In short, more and more number combinations are produced as the selected numbers increase. This same rule applies to the rest of the remaining system plays.
With regard to System 5R, 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 5R, the 5 numbers you have chosen are automatically matched with each of the remaining 40 digits in the bet slip, creating a total of 40 six-number combinations.
Please remember that your total bet cost will be much higher in system bets due to the higher number of combinations you will bet on. The overall price of the ticket shall be PhP 20 times the number of combinations produced.
