About the 6/42 Lotto
The 6/42 Lotto, also known as Lotto 6/42, is one of the most popular lottery games operated by the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO). It is a game of chance where six numbers from 1 to 42 are drawn randomly. The jackpot prize starts at ₱5,940,000.00 and increases based on nationwide sales until there is a jackpot winner. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 5,245,786. Many Filipinos have become millionaires due to the 6/42 Lotto, which began its journey in March 1995.
How to Play the Lotto 6/42
To play the Lotto 6/42, you need to buy a ticket from any authorized lotto outlet nationwide. Each ticket costs 20 pesos and contains six numbers from 1 to 42. You can choose your own numbers or opt to play the Lucky Pick (LP) option, where the computer will randomly generate your numbers for you. You can also play up to six combinations per ticket.
Understanding the 6/42 Lotto System Play
If you want to increase your chances of winning the 6/42 Lotto, you can try the System Play option. This allows you to play more than six numbers per combination, up to a maximum of 12 numbers. The system will then generate all possible combinations of your chosen numbers, giving you more chances to match the winning numbers.
The cost of playing the System Play depends on how many numbers you choose and how many combinations are generated. For example, if you choose seven numbers, there are seven possible combinations, so you will pay P140 (P20 x 7). If you choose 12 numbers, there are 924 possible combinations, so you will pay P18,480 (P20 x 924).
Here is a table showing the different System Play options and their costs:
The System 5-Roll is a special option. To play the System 5-Roll you need to select five numbers from 1 to 42 and the system will generate 37 combinations of six numbers from your selected five numbers. The total bet cost for System 5-Roll is 740 pesos.
How to Win the 6/42 Lotto: Winning Options Explained
To win the jackpot prize in the 6/42 Lotto, you need to match all six winning numbers in any order. If two or more persons win the jackpot, the prize is divided equally among all the winners, with each winner’s payment determined by equally dividing the total jackpot amount. If there are no jackpot winners, the prize will be added to the next draw.
If you match five, four, or three winning numbers, you can also win minor prizes. The prize amounts vary depending on the number of winners and the jackpot amount.
Here is a table showing the different winning options and their prize amounts:
|6 out of 6||Jackpot (minimum of P5,940,000.00)|
|5 out of 6||Up to P24,000|
|4 out of 6||Up to P800|
|3 out of 6||P20|
6/42 Lotto Ticket Price
A 6/42 Lotto ticket costs 20 pesos per combination. This includes a 20% documentary stamp tax (DST). If you play more than one combination or use the system play option, you need to pay accordingly.
For example, if you play two combinations using Lucky Pick, you will pay 40 pesos (P20 x 2). If you play eight combinations using System Play (System 8), you will pay 560 pesos (P20 x 28).
