A System allows you to select more than the standard 6 numbers. For example, a System 7 allows you to pick 7 numbers and a System 8 allows you to pick 8 numbers and so on. The highest amount of numbers you can pick is 20 which is a System 20.

The benefit of playing a System is that your entry is equivalent to playing every possible combination of 6 numbers. For example, if you are playing a System 8, your entry is equivalent to all 28 possible combinations of 6 numbers from your 8 selections.

What is a Super Combo?

A Super Combo entry lets you enter more number combinations than a standard game entry, but does not cover all possible number combinations of a selected set of numbers like a Systems entry.
