The Grand Toto 6/53 was having jackpots that began from RM 15 million. Any amount that was brought forward from Mega Toto 6/52 was also rolled over until the Grand Toto 6/63 was won. The first-ever Grand Toto 6/63 draw was held on March 21, 2015, which was a Saturday. By this time, the jackpot that was brought forward from Mega Toto 6/52 combined with the accumulated amounts of Grand Toto 6/63 amounted to RM 20,530,942.96 jackpot.

Playing Star Toto 6/50

Star Toto 6/50 allows you to choose 6 numbers from a pool of 1 to 50.

Standard Play

There are 3 modes of playing one of which is standard play. Here, you get your play slip from the outlet near you. As mentioned above, Star Toto 6/50 has a total of 680 outlets which technically means you can get an outlet near you at any time. If you are not quite sure where the nearest outlet is, you can visit the official Sports Toto website where you enter the keyword under the Toto outlets tab and you will get a list of the Sports Toto outlets near you.

Once you get there, you will be given the Star Toto 6/50 play slip that has different play areas. In each play area, there is an array of numbers from 1 to 50. In the standard play mode, you simply choose 6 numbers and the bonus number. Following the draw, the winning numbers will be announced which you confirm against your ticket. The cost per bet is RM 1.

System Play

The second mode of play is called system play. Here, you choose from 7 to 15 numbers depending on your preferences. This will help you cover all the possible combinations. The trick here is that the more numbers you play, the higher your chances of winning. The minimum bet is RM 1.

  • If you bet on 7 numbers, the system registers as system 7. This is treated as 7 plays and since the cost per play is RM 1, system 7 will cost you RM 7.
  • System 8 is equivalent to 28 plays and it will cost you RM 28.
  • If you bet on system 9, you will have an equivalent of 84 plays and this will cost you RM 84.
  • If you bet on system 10, you will have 210 plays the equivalent of which is RM 210.
  • System 11 gives you a total of 462 games and it will cost you RM 462
  • System 12 is equivalent to 924 games and will cost RM 924.
  • System 13 gives you a total of 1716 games and will cost you RM 1,716.
  • System 14 gives you a total of 3003 games and will cost you RM 3,003.
  • Finally, system 15 will give you a total of 5005 games costing you a total of RM 5,005.


This is the last mode of play and the advantage with EZ-Bet is that it gives you an opportunity to win with relatively smaller bets. For Star Toto 6/50, you can bet through EZ-Bet starting from system 9 all the way to system 15. Again, the more the numbers you play, the higher the chances of winning because you get more sets of numbers.  The minimum bet is RM 2.

  • If you bet on system 9, you get a total of 84 sets of numbers and this will cost you RM 42.
  • System 10 will also cost you RM 42
  • System 11 will similarly cost you RM 42
  • System 12 also costs you RM 42 to play
  • Systems 13 to 15 will cost you RM 143

Just like in any other lotto game, you have an opportunity to select the numbers yourself on the play slip or do so through the Luck Pick. The latter is much more preferred if you do not have any idea of the numbers you want to play or you just want a different set of winning numbers from nowhere. The Luck Pick is done through a machine at the outlet.
