PCSO Lotto 6/42 System Bets – Learn How to Increase your Chances of Winning

You can increase your chances of winning the jackpot through 6/42 Lotto System Bets. This advanced option allows you to pick more than the usual six (6) numbers and generates multiple combinations of your chosen numbers.

These are the choices available if you want to play system bets- 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 player chooses eight (8) numbers, producing a total of 28 combinations.

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.

In the case of 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 5-Roll, the 5 numbers you have chosen are automatically paired with each of the remaining 37 digits in the bet slip, generating a total of 37 combinations.

Note that your total ticket cost will be much higher in system bets due to the higher number of combinations you will place your bet on. The total ticket cost shall be PhP 20 times the number of combinations created.
