Singapore Pools is the only legal lottery operator in Singapore. The company is run by a government-owned corporation called Singapore Pools Limited. This organization spends all lottery profits on legitimate work.
The first Singapore Lottery was held in 1968 to curb prohibited betting. After a few years, the lottery gained popularity. Since then, it has become the most popular form of gaming in Singapore.
The game is played on a fixed-odds format, where players select six or seven numbers from a range of one to 49. The odds of winning are low. However, the chances of winning a prize increase with the number of lots you purchase.
In addition to the jackpot prize, Singapore lottery offers several other prizes. The top prize is $100,000 for a $2 bet, and the highest prize is up to 2.3 million dollars.
