Lottery Singapore is a state-owned company that organizes and operates a range of lottery games. It is the only legal lottery operator in the country. Its products include 4-D, TOTO, and Singapore Sweep.
There are two ways to play the lottery: through the online portal or at a physical outlet. Both methods involve making your selections, purchasing a ticket, and waiting until the draw date to see if you win.
A quick look at the rules
The basic game format is similar to that of 4D Lotto, with players choosing six numbers from a pool ranging from 1 to 49. The jackpot is determined by matching all six numbers, and an additional ball is selected to determine the lower prize tiers.
Getting started with Singapore Toto
Toto is an easy-to-understand lottery with straightforward rules and good jackpots. The game also offers a system entry option, which allows players to choose up to 12 numbers from a pool of 914 unique combinations. However, this can be a costly option.
Claiming your prize
You can claim your prize at any Singapore Pools outlet, from the day after the draw you won. The outlets will differ based on the type of ticket you hold.
Singapore is one of the few countries worldwide that does not tax lottery winnings. This means that if you are lucky enough to win the Toto jackpot, you can keep it and not have to pay any taxes on it.
