Singapore is a country that enjoys a love-hate relationship with the lottery. While it provides some hope and joy to its citizens, people also have to accept that it doesn’t always bring them the wealth they desire.
The Singapore Lottery (Singapore Pools) is the only legal operator of the lottery in Singapore. It has been operating since 1968 and is regulated by the Singapore Totalisator Board.
In addition to the main four-digit lottery games, Singapore Pools offers sports betting and Horse Racing. They are constantly expanding their services and improving their quality of service.
There are three types of lottery: 4-D, Toto and Singapore Sweep. Each type of lottery has its own rules and odds.
The 4-D Lottery, for example, has a jackpot prize of S$6 million and prizes start from S$10. This is the largest single lottery prize in Asia.
However, the odds of winning the jackpot are not as good as in other lottery games. It is only a 1 in a million chance of winning a jackpot prize.
Toto is a 6/49 format game where players must choose six numbers from 1 to 49. Each drawing features one supplementary number that determines a few of the prize tiers. In addition to the jackpot, there are also six additional prize tiers.
