The Singapore lottery is one of the most popular gambling games in the country. It is operated by the state-owned lottery company Singapore Pools.
For a chance to win a jackpot prize, a player must select six numbers between 1 and 49. If they match at least three of these numbers, they will win.
Singapore lottery tickets can be purchased at any Singapore Pools outlet. They are available for sale for as little as a dollar. To view the results of a draw, you can either visit a lottery retailer or access the official website.
Aside from Toto, the second most popular game is the 4D game. Anyone aged 18 or above can attend a 4-D draw. All draws are monitored by an independent external auditor.
Tickets are priced at SG$1 and include goods and services tax. You can also buy a quick pick option, which lets you choose a few numbers. These can be redeemed at certified payout locations.
The Toto Singapore lottery began in 1968 and continues to be a popular draw. The prize has increased in the past four decades, from SGD$300,000 in 2014 to SGD$500,000 in 2014.
In April of 2015, Toto was ranked as the second most-popular gambling activity in the country. It is the only legalised form of lottery in Singapore.
Singapore Pools is the only legal lottery operator in the country. However, anyone who bets with an unlicensed or illegal operator can face fines of up to SGD10,000 and imprisonment for up to six months.
