Lottery Singapore is a popular form of gambling that allows players to win large sums of cash while having fun. Its games are legal in Singapore, so residents can play them with confidence.
The game’s popularity has prompted its resurgence in recent years, with many people opting to take part in lottery tournaments to earn extra money or as a fun pastime. However, there are also some concerns about the drawbacks of playing this game.
One of the most common problems is scams involving the lottery. Scammers usually offer to buy tickets for a certain amount of money and then ask the victim to transfer the funds or pay administrative fees before receiving their winnings.
These scams can cause victims to lose their money and even their lives. The victims often report that they were asked to buy the numbers by a friend or family member.
Alternatively, the lottery scams may be carried out by strangers. Scammers may call a victim or email them and tell them that they have won the lottery.
A woman in her forties claimed that she won the 4D lottery on Sept 11 but then accidentally threw the ticket away, AsiaOne reported. CCTV footage showed her throwing it in a rubbish chute near her home in Geylang Serai.
The increase in the amount spent on lotteries and sports bets in the Tote Board’s last financial year, which ended in March 2022, was attributed to relaxed Covid-19 measures and the resumption of international sports events. It was a 40 per cent rise from the $6.6 billion wagered in the previous year.
