  2. Always observe one (1) meter physical distance from one another.
  3. Use your own ball pen.

Megalotto 6/45 System Plays – How to Improve the Odds of Winning

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

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

With regard to System 5-Roll, the bettor will only need to select five (5) numbers. The remaining (unmarked) 40 numbers will be paired with the 5 marked numbers. This generates a total of 40 combinations.

Please 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.

Refer to the table below for more information on overall ticket cost for every 6/45 Megalotto system play.
