How to Play 6/45 Mega Lotto
Before continuing, keep in mind that you need to be at least 18 years old to play.
These are the detailed steps when playing 6/45 Mega Lotto:
- Go to any lotto outlet authorized by PCSO and look for the Mega Lotto 6/45 bet card.
- Pick your 6/45 number combination by marking six (6) out of numbers 1 to 45.
- Mark the Lucky Pick (LP) option in case you have no combination in mind. This option instructs the system to automatically choose the number combination for you.
- You can also increase your odds of winning through the 6/45 Lotto System Play. With this option, you can choose more than the usual six (6) numbers thus increasing your total number combinations.
- For multiple draws, mark the number of consecutive draws you want to join in the Draw panel.
- Pay the corresponding ticket price to the cashier and get your generated ticket.
- After the draw, access the 6/45 Lotto Result to know if you won the prize.
Each Lotto 6/45 number combination costs PhP 20, inclusive of 20% Documentary Stamp Tax (DST).
Once done placing your bet, affix your signature at the back of the Megalotto 6/45 ticket. Keep it in a safe and dry place.
Do not tamper with, wet, fold or iron your Megalotto 6/45 ticket. Tickets are heat-sensitive and they have to be machine-validated before you can claim your prize.
To win the Jackpot, you must match all 6 numbers. The Initial Jackpot Prize (IJP) for Megalotto 6/45 is 8,910,000.00 (net of agent’s prize commission). If no one wins the jackpot in a particular MegaLotto 6/45 draw, the prize amount is carried forward into the next MegaLotto 6/45 draw. If there is more than one jackpot winner, the Jackpot prize will then be divided equally among all the winners.
New PCSO Guidelines to be Observed when Playing Lotto 6/45
During this time of pandemic, PCSO requires 6/45 Lotto bettors to abide by the regulations below when transacting in all lotto outlets nationwide.
- Wear your face mask at all times. No Facemask-No Betting scheme shall be carried out at all outlets nationwide.
- Follow social distancing at all times while in the outlet.
- Use your own pen to lessen the risk of catching the virus.
- Put the bet slips and money in the tray provided by the lotto outlet to eliminate physical contact.
- Sanitize your hands before and after betting. Alcohol or hand sanitizers are available in the betting area.
- Avoid littering and put away used playing card or non-winning tickets in the trash bins.
Megalotto System Plays – Ways to Improve the Odds of Winning
You can increase 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 multiple 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 produced in System 7 because a bettor who chooses this option would have to mark seven (7) numbers. In System 8, on the other hand, 28 combinations are generated because the bettor will have to choose a total of eight (8) numbers out of the numbers 1 to 45.
To sum up, more and more number combinations are produced as the picked numbers increase. This same rule applies to the rest of the remaining system plays.
With System 5R, you only need to choose five (5) numbers instead of the regular six-number combination. The remaining unselected numbers in the bet slip (40 in all) will be partnered with the 5 numbers you marked, thus creating 40 six-number combinations in all.
Remember that the higher the number of combinations, the higher the overall bet cost will be. The total cost of the ticket is PhP 20 times the number of combinations produced.
