  2. Pick your 6/45 number combination by marking six (6) out of numbers 1 to 45.
  3. If you cannot think of any number combination, choose the Lucky Pick (LP) to let the system automatically choose the numbers for you.
  4. You can also choose up to twelve (12) numbers through the 6/45 Lotto System Play to raise your odds of hitting the jackpot.
  5. If you want to join multiple draws, select the number of succeeding draws in the Draw section.
  6. Pay the ticket price and get your printed ticket once done.
  7. After the draw, see the 6/45 Lotto Result to know if you won the prize.

Additional Guidelines to be Observed by Bettors when Playing Lotto 6/45

PCSO has implemented the guidelines below to be followed by 6/45 Lotto bettors nationwide.

  1. Always wear your face mask. Bettors without face mask will not be allowed to place 6/45 Lotto bets.
  2. Always observe one (1) meter physical distance from each other.
  3. Bring your own ball pen.
  4. Use the money tray to decrease contact.
  5. Use disinfectants or sanitizers before you leave the lotto outlet.
  6. Avoid littering and throw away any used play card or non-winning tickets in the garbage cans.

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

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 creates numerous 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).

In System 7, a bettor picks seven (7) numbers which produces a total of seven (7) combinations. With System 8, on the other hand, the bettor marks a total of eight (8) numbers producing a total of 28 combinations.

To sum it up, more and more number combinations are produced as the choosen numbers increase. This same rule applies to the rest of the remaining system bets.

With System 5-Roll, you only select 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 marked are automatically paired with each of the remaining 40 digits in the board, generating a total of 40 combinations.

Please note that your overall bet cost will be much higher in system bets due to the higher number of combinations you will bet on. The total cost of the ticket shall be PhP 20 times the number of combinations produced.

Refer to the table below for more information on total ticket cost for each Mega Lotto system bet.
