Lotto 6/45 System Plays – How to Improve the Chances 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 generates 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 selects seven (7) numbers which creates a total of seven (7) combinations. With System 8, on the other hand, the bettor picks a total of eight (8) numbers generating a total of 28 combinations.
The more numbers marked, the higher the number of combinations generated. Same rule applies in System 9, System 10, System 11 and in System 12.
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 5R, the 5 numbers you have chosen are automatically combined with each of the remaining 40 digits in the play slip, producing a total of 40 combinations.
Note that the higher the number of combinations, the higher the overall ticket cost will be. The overall ticket cost is PhP 20 times the number of combinations created.
