Lottery Singapore offers a variety of games to players. These include 4D, TOTO and Singapore Sweep. All of these lottery games follow the same rules and are easy to understand.
There are also several ways to play the lottery, including online. The lottery website and its mobile app allow players to check the results of every draw in real time. In addition, they can sign up for email alerts and get notifications when they win.
The odds of winning a prize vary between the different lottery games. The 4D lottery, for example, features 23 sets of winning numbers that are drawn on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 6.30 PM SST. The TOTO lottery is similar, with six numbers drawn along with an additional number.
Each of these lotteries has multiple tiers of cash prizes that are awarded in the draws. The jackpot in the 4D lottery varies between SGD3 million and SGD6 million, while TOTO offers seven tiers of cash prizes that range from SGD12,000 to SGD150,000.
These prizes are won by matching the numbers on a ticket with the winning number drawn in each draw. However, the prizes can be claimed only within one hundred and eighty (180) days from the date of the draw.
If a prize is not claimed within that timeframe, it will be forfeited. The Singapore Pools website and its mobile application offer information on the winning prize and how to claim it.
The Tote Board, which is responsible for overseeing all lottery and sports betting in Singapore, reported a record SGD9.2 billion spent on lottery and sports betting in the last financial year. This is up from SGD6.8 billion in 2017.
