The Singapore Pools is the only licensed lottery operator in Singapore. They have three gambling activities: Toto, Sweep, and 4D. In addition, they offer sports betting and remote gambling.
In the early 2000s, 4D was the most popular lottery game in Singapore. Originally, it was a five-digit lottery, but the format was changed to six digits. Now, there are two drawings each week.
Players can buy tickets from authorized sellers. Tickets are cheap and give a shot at hitting the jackpot. If the numbers don’t match, the prize will roll over to the next drawing.
The Toto lottery has been around for four decades, and it was first launched in June 1968. A spokesman from the Tote Board said it is an accepted form of recreation.
Its ticket price was only one dollar when it was first introduced. However, since its introduction, its top prize has increased from 600,000 dollars to 2.3 million.
The Toto is played twice a week. Each draw is held at 9:30PM. You can view the drawing at the Singapore Pools Main Branch.
It has a minimum jackpot of one million Singapore dollars. But, the chances of winning are very low.
In addition to the lottery, Singapore also runs sports betting and horse races. These games can be played online.
The Singapore Pools operates the Toto lottery, and the Tote Board carries out horse racing.
For the Sweep, 3.5 million tickets are preprinted. Those who bet with a few cents can win from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.
