Founded in 1968, Lottery Singapore is the only legal lottery in Singapore. It is run by Singapore Pools, a government-owned lottery company. The company’s main products include sportsbook, horse racing, and Toto lottery. In addition to its lottery products, Singapore Pools also donates to charitable organizations.
Lottery Singapore is held every Thursday evening at 6.30 pm. The game is open to all residents aged 18 and above. It costs $1 per board. The chance of winning is 1 in 13,987,816.
The game is played by selecting four digits between 0000 and 9999. This is similar to Pick 4 in the United States. Purchasing multiple Singapore lottery tickets will increase your chances of winning. Buying lots with other people also increases your chances of winning.
In April 2015, Toto was the second most popular gambling activity in Singapore. An engineer from Singapore won a $50,000 Powerball prize. He played a group of digits for three weeks in a row. He bought a ticket for just $1 at a Prime Supermarket outlet.
Toto results are announced each Thursday. Players can get more information online. The results webpage provides information about the winning numbers. The company does not disclose the names of winning players. The prize amount is based on the rank of the numbers drawn.
The main prize is SGD $1 million. In addition to the main prize, there are also seven big stake prize pools. The prize amount is lowered when the winner uses an extra number.
