The lottery is one of the most popular activities in Singapore. It’s legal and conducted by Singapore Pools, a state-owned gambling company. Players purchase a number combination, hoping to win the jackpot. The cash prize depends on the rank of the number combinations drawn, with first prize giving the highest payout.
The lottery is free and can be played online, at retail stores, or through a mobile app. Players select six numbers from one to 49. If all six numbers match, the player wins the jackpot. The winning numbers are verified online. They must be similar to previous draws and have the appropriate weight. The lottery site will let you know when you win a prize, and will send you an email when the results are published.
The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 1398,816, and for any prize, the odds are one in 54. The jackpot rolls down if no winner is found in four consecutive draws. The remaining prize pool is shared amongst the lower-tier prize winners. The odds of winning the jackpot are low, but a high-stakes lottery can be lucrative.
There are two main lottery games in Singapore. The four-digit game, 4D, is the most popular. Both are played twice a week. The price of a ticket is $1. With tax included, it’s a low-cost way to make money.
