For first-time gamers, you need to understand the rules and regulations before placing for Toto. You have to pick six numbers ranging from 1 and 45. Well, if you have no idea on the numbers to pick, request for a QuickPick as the computer will randomly generate a set of numbers for you.
If the numbers you pick match the six winning numbers, then you will walk-away with cash prizes offered. You may also pick an additional number â€“ six numbers and one extra number. In that case, if three of your numbers match the results complete with the additional number, you also stand a chance to walk-away with a prize.
There are two draws weekly â€“ Mondays and Thursdays. You may place once a week before the draw date but remember to purchase the ticket by 6 pm on the draw day.
Generally, there are three types of entries â€“ ordinary entry, system roll and entry. Ordinary entry is a combination of six numbers ranging from 1 and 45. You are not allowed to place through telephone. Meanwhile, system entry enables you to pick between 7 and 12 numbers also ranging from 1 to 45.
On the other hand, system rolls allow you to select five numbers only. Players need to pick one remaining number from 40 numbers that have not been picked from the combination. Minimum for Toto is $1.00.
There are six groups of prizes for the winners total up to 54 percent of Toto sales for every draw. This indicates first prize winner with six matching numbers can walk away with 33 percent, second prize (five matching numbers with or without the additional number) can collect 13 percent, four matching numbers with the additional number also walk-away with 13 percent while the remaining group five and six can collect $30 and $20 for each combination.
