Singapore Pools is the only legal lottery operator in Singapore and operates a portfolio of games including Toto, 4D and Singapore Sweep. It also runs sports betting on local football and motor racing.
Lottery Singapore is owned by the Singapore Totalisator Board (Tote Board). The objective of Singapore Pools is to provide a legal avenue for betting to combat illegal gambling activities and to channel operational surpluses towards the good of the community.
SG Pools is the only company that has been legally allowed to run Lottery in Singapore since 1 May 2004 when it was formed as a wholly owned subsidiary of Tote Board. Its mission is to return 54% of lottery revenue to its players in the form of prizes and distribute the rest of the proceeds to charitable, community and sporting initiatives.
The SG Toto 6 of 49 is one of the most popular lotteries in Singapore and has been a staple of Singapore Pools for over four decades. This game has a progressive jackpot that starts at $1 million and increases every week until someone wins it. The game also has a feature called snowballing which means that the jackpot can grow to as much as $16 million if it is not won by its first prize winner.
There are many ways to play the SG Toto 6 of 49 and you can either buy a ticket from a local outlet or play online through Singapore Pools. The latter is much quicker and easier than buying a physical ticket at a local store.
