How to Play Mega Lotto 6/45

Before proceeding further, please remember that PCSO only allows persons 18 years old and above to play.

These are the complete steps when playing Mega Lotto 6/45:

  1. Go to a lotto outlet authorized by PCSO near you and look for the Mega Lotto 6/45 play card.
  2. Mark six (6) digits that will comprise your 6/45 Lotto combination. You can select from numbers 1 to 45.
  3. If you cannot think of any number combination, mark Lucky Pick (LP) to let the terminal generate the number combination for you.
  4. You can also raise your chances of winning using the 6/45 Lotto System Play. With this option, you can pick more than the usual six (6) numbers thus increasing your total number combinations.
  5. If you want to join multiple draws, mark the number of consecutive draws in the Draw section.
  6. Give your play slip and payment to the cashier and get your generated ticket once printed.
  7. After the draw, access the 6/45 Lotto Result to verify if you won the prize.

Each Megalotto 6/45 combination costs PhP 20. If you played any of the System Bets, the total bet amount would vary from PhP 140 to PhP 18,480, depending on the total number of combinations generated. The ticket price includes a 20% Documentary Stamp Tax (DST).

Once done placing your bet, affix your signature at the back of the Mega Lotto ticket. Store it in a safe and dry place.

Your 6/45 Lotto ticket needs to be machine-validated before you can claim your prize. Hence, do not tamper with, wet, fold or iron your ticket.

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 Protocols to be Observed when Playing Lotto 6/45

During this time of pandemic, PCSO requires 6/45 Lotto bettors to observe the rules below when transacting in all lotto outlets in the country.

  1. Always wear your face mask. Players with no face mask will not be allowed to place 6/45 Lotto bets.
  2. Always observe one (1) meter physical distance from one another.
  3. Bring your own pen when placing bets.
  4. Use the money tray to reduce physical contact.
  5. Apply alcohols or sanitizers before leaving the outlet.
  6. Avoid littering and put away used bet slip or old tickets in the trash cans.

Megalotto System Plays – Improve the Chances of Winning

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 produces several combinations of your chosen numbers.

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.

In System 7, a player selects seven (7) numbers which generates a total of seven (7) combinations. With System 8, on the other hand, the bettor selects a total of eight (8) numbers creating a total of 28 combinations.

In essence, more and more number combinations are created as the selected numbers increase. This same rule applies to the rest of the remaining system plays.

In System 5-Roll, a player marks only five (5) numbers and—for the sixth number—pairs these off with each of the remaining forty (40) numbers, producing a total of 40 combinations.

Note that the higher the number of combinations, the higher the total ticket cost will be. The overall ticket cost is PhP 20 times the number of combinations produced.

Refer to the table below for more information on total ticket cost for every Mega Lotto 6/45 system play.
