Lotto 6/45 System Bets – Increase your Chances 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 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).

With System 7, a player picks seven (7) numbers which creates a total of seven (7) combinations. In System 8, the player picks eight (8) numbers, generating a total of 28 combinations.

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.

...

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

Please note that the higher the number of combinations, the higher the overall bet cost will be. The total ticket price is PhP 20 multiplied by the number of combinations created.
