You can play the lottery in Singapore on many different platforms, including online and at retail outlets. The lottery can also be played on mobile devices. Players choose six numbers from one to 49 and, if they match the winning numbers, win the jackpot. Results are posted online, and if you win, you can claim your prize immediately.
The lottery is run by Singapore Pools, a state-owned company. It is the only legal lottery in the country. Although it can be confusing, it has several benefits for residents of the city-state. For starters, the Singapore Pools website allows you to place your bets online. However, you must be over 21 years old to play online.
In 1998, Singapore’s lottery program saw a relaunch, with a new prize structure. In 2004, the first prize was doubled to $2 million. The prize eventually increased to $2.3 million in 2013. The jackpot rolls down every four draws, and it is possible to use a prize calculator to find out how much you can expect to win.
Toto was first launched in Singapore on June 9, 1968. The top prices were raised and snowballing was introduced. On May 19, 1986, the lottery was introduced as a computerized game. In addition to the top prizes, the lottery was also introduced online. Initially, the lottery was conducted on a 5/49 format, but in 1988, this was changed to a 6/42 format. Later, this format was made available online.
