The lottery is a popular gambling activity in Singapore. Lottery players can win a variety of prizes by buying tickets from Singapore Pools outlets or online.
Besides lottery games, there are also other forms of gambling in Singapore such as sports betting and horse racing. The lottery is regulated by the Tote Board.
Singapore Pools, the only legal lottery operator in Singapore, operates a range of games including Toto and 4D. They are both affordable and easy to play.
