How to Play the Lotto with System Entries

With a system entry you can enter more than the standard amount of numbers in an upcoming draw, therefore increasing your chances of winning exponentially. Although the concept may seem complicated at first, playing the lottery with system entries is quick, easy and has huge profit potential. In this article we're going to show you exactly how.

How to Play the Lotto with System Entries

System Entries in a Nutshell

System Bet games essentially mean you are entering more than the standard set of numbers than you would on a regular lottery ticket play. All these numbers are then entered into the following draw in multiple combinations, affording you the opportunity to match more numbers per play. It should be noted that the more numbers you enter the more the cost will rise. This is because you are essentially playing multiple games at the same time: more numbers = more games.

To engage the System Entry simply click on additional numbers beyond the regular amount of playable numbers (i.e. pick more than six for the Saturday Lotto or more than seven for the Tuesday Lotto) and the feature will be engaged automatically. You will also see that the System Bet has been activated at the top of the ticket area. In the image below a System 07 play has been entered for the Saturday Lotto. This means that, by adding an additional number, now seven different lottery games will be entered.

System Entry - Saturday Lotto

Now let's take a look at some of the different lotteries you can play here at Lottoland and how you can boost your chances of winning with System Entries.

By playing the Saturday Lotto at Lottoland you're able to use system entries to boost your chances of winning. Rather than the standard six you're able to enter up to twelve extra numbers making 18 numbers in total – more than three times the numbers of a regular entry. 

It's much the same with all Lottoland games, including both domestic lotteries as well as foreign ones. 

With EuroMillions and EuroJackpot, meanwhile, you can pick all available bonus numbers to increase your winning chances even further. 

With system entries you have a greater chance of winning those huge jackpots not to mention any of the other lower tier prizes.

Win the American Dream

Two of our most popular lotteries at Lottoland both come from the US – MegaMillions and PowerBall. Together these games offer the biggest jackpots on the planet. With both lotteries, in additional to the standard five numbers, you can add an additional 15 for a massive 20 numbers per play! Due to the way the game is designed you can only pick one PowerBall or MegaBall, however you do still have the option of adding the extra games – i.e. the PowerBall "PowerPlay" and MegaMillions "MegaPlier" features, to multiply non-jackpot wins. Get the power of multiple entries AND prize multipliers together! 

The Advantage of Playing with System Entries

So, what are the benefits of system entries? Well, by entering multiple games simultaneously you get more chances to win. Some people also like to play a mixed game, where they first click the Quick+1 button for a fully-random quick pick with a nice spread of numbers. They then engage a system entry by picking their own special numbers – their lucky numbers you might say – in conjunction with their random quick pick numbers to get the best of both worlds.

Playing with a System Entry in Five Simple Steps

System Entries may seem complex at first – and, in numerical terms they are – but for you, the player, they're both easy to understand and use, and they make it easier to win too! Simply follow these simple steps and you too could be on the fast-track to riches!

1. Choose Your Lottery

The first step is to choose the lottery you wish to play. You can play with system bets in any of Lottoland's lotteries, except for the Spanish Christmas Lottery and its smaller sibling, El Nino (this is because they're traditional raffle-style lotteries, based on buying tickets with specific numbers, rather than a lotto where you select your own numbers).

2. Choose Your Lucky Numbers

Next, choose your numbers – remember you can either go for a quick pick, by clicking the Quick+1 button, or you can select and add every one of your numbers manually.

3. Choose Your System

Now you can choose your extra numbers. These can be regular or supplemental numbers (e.g. Lucky Stars in EuroMillions). Just click to select the numbers you wish to play. Keep an eye on the type of system you have activated on the top of the selection area. Feel free to hover your mouse cursor over the System Type box to get more information on your selection including how many actual combinations you will be entering into the next draw.

4. Select additional numbers

With each additional number you add your chances of winning a prize increase significantly. The cost of this investment grows each time, but so does the potential payoff should you guess correctly.

5. Select additional options and Games

Don't forget those extra games – such as Lotto+, for the Irish Lotto, or, for the giant US lotteries, you also have the option of playing with the MegaPlier (MegaMillions) or PowerPlay (PowerBall) to multiply non-jackpot wins.

System Bet Example

Everyone's looking for a way to increase their chances of winning the Lotto and since system entries offer a chance to tilt the odds in your favour, playing with system entries makes sense. Remember the more numbers you pick the more numbers will be used in more and more different combinations. The table below shows you all the different types of plays available for the Saturday Lotto (though this also applies to the Monday/Wednesday Lotto game), how many combinations will be entered and how much they cost. Note that the names of each system play correspond to the types of numbers picked.
