Lottery Singapore is a state-owned company that offers lottery and sports betting. It is the only lottery operator in Singapore, and its operations are regulated by the Gambling Regulatory Authority.
Its products include four-digit (4D) and Toto lottery games, as well as sportsbook betting. It also donates surpluses to charity and community organisations in Singapore.
The earliest Toto game was introduced in 1968, and it remains one of the most popular games on the island today. In this game, players select six numbers from 1 to 49 in order to win the jackpot prize.
Buying a ticket for the Toto lottery costs $1, including GST. The game is played twice per week and the prize pool typically amounts to $2.8 million.
Toto is a highly popular lottery in Singapore that has a snowballing feature, meaning the jackpot can roll over until someone wins it. In addition, there are plenty of ways to play Toto – from purchasing tickets in the physical world to playing online.
You can buy a Toto lottery ticket at any of the many Singapore Pools outlets in the city. These include those in NTUC Fairprice, King George’s Avenue and NEX.
It is a very inexpensive lottery, and you can even make system bets to improve your chances of winning a prize. However, you should keep in mind that the odds of winning a jackpot prize are much lower than other types of lottery.
In the last financial year, Singapore Pools’ lottery and sports bets accounted for nearly S$9 billion of all gambling bets. This was an increase of 40 per cent from the year before.
