Since 1968, Singapore Pools has been the sole lottery operator in the country. They are licensed under the Tote Board, a statutory body under the Ministry of Finance and provide Singaporeans with a trusted, safe and legal gambling platform. They offer a range of lottery products, including 4D lottery, Toto lottery and sportsbook/sports betting.
Aside from their lottery product offerings, they also contribute to the community by donating surpluses to different charitable organisations and communities in Singapore. This has resulted in a significant contribution to Singapore’s economy.
How To Play the Singapore Lottery
The first step to playing the Singapore lottery is to purchase a ticket from an authorized outlet. These outlets can be found in most residential areas and are staffed by licensed lottery agents. They are the safest way to get a Singapore lottery ticket and can be purchased in both cash and credit.
Online lottery tickets are also available, though they do not carry Singapore Toto. You can purchase these tickets from a Singapore-based agent, but you need to be in Singapore to make the transaction.
Singapore Pools operates two main games, 4D lottery and Toto lottery. Both games are drawn twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays. In both draws, a set of 6 numbers is chosen from a pool that consists of numbers ranging from 1 to 49. These winning numbers determine the jackpot prize, as well as lower tier prizes. The minimum Singapore jackpot prize is $1 million, and the odds of winning are one in 13,983,816.
