Lottery Singapore is a state-owned company that provides a legal way to bet on lotteries. It was incorporated on 23 May 1968 to curb illegal gambling in the country. It is owned by the Tote Board, a statutory body under the Ministry of Finance in Singapore.
The Singapore Pools (Private) Limited runs several different lottery games including 4D and Toto. Purchasing lottery tickets online saves you a lot of time and money by not having to travel to lottery outlets.
Buying lottery online can also be very convenient because it allows you to purchase your numbers at any time and anywhere you like. This is especially useful if you are always on the go and need to make a quick and easy purchase.
A woman in a private Facebook group urged Singaporeans to watch out for people who ask them to buy lottery tickets on their behalf. She warned against getting someone to bet for you as it can lead to scams.
Her post went viral, with many expressing their support for her. In fact, some shared that they had lost their money to a lottery scam that claimed to be run by religious figures.
The National Council on Problem Gambling has issued a warning to Singaporeans against gambling excessively, saying that it is a risky and dangerous activity. The NCPGM has a helpline for players who need support or assistance with their gambling behaviour, and families can apply for a family exclusion order to suspend an individual’s online betting account.
