Lottery Singapore operates lottery games such as 4-D, Toto and Singapore Sweep. It was established by the Government to provide safe and trusted betting to counter illegal gambling. It also contributes to a range of social services, including arts and sports.
Lottery games are regulated by the Tote Board, a statutory body. The Board also oversees horse races, which are run by the Singapore Turf Club.
Players can buy tickets for these games at physical outlets, online or over the phone. They can also sign up for email alerts. The official website allows players to check their ticket numbers and prize payouts.
TOTO (or “Toto Sweep”)
TOTO, which was conceived in 1968 and is a variant of the classic Singapore Pools game, is the second most popular lottery in Singapore after 4-D. To participate, players buy a ticket with 6 numbers, each of which is selected from 1 to 49.
Toto draws are held twice a week on Monday and Thursday at 6:30 pm (SG time) at 210 Middle Road. They can be watched live online, as well as at a number of other Singapore Pools outlets.
The Participant agrees to abide by these Singapore Sweep Lottery Rules, which are available on the Singapore Pools Website. They also agree to accept any amendments made to these Rules by the Company before they place Bets.
In Singapore, betting on sports and other entertainment events must be legal and licensed by the Gambling Regulatory Authority. This requires promoters to pay the Composition Amount, file a Statement of Compliance with the Commission of Gambling Duties and be in good standing with the authorities.
