Lottery Singapore is the main provider of lotteries in Singapore, which include 4-D, Toto and Singapore Sweep. It is operated by the Tote Board, a statutory body under the Ministry of Finance.
The Tote Board is also responsible for sports betting. In the last financial year, the statutory body reported that SGD9.2 billion was spent on lotteries and sports. This is an increase of more than 40 percent from the previous financial year, The Straits Times reports.
Toto draws are bi-weekly on Mondays and Thursdays, at 6:30 pm SST. Jackpots vary between S$1 million and $2,300,000.
This game has a more traditional structure than the popular 4D lottery, but with a more flexible bet structure that changes the amount of money you win based on how many numbers are drawn. It is available at all authorized Singapore Pools outlets.
There are seven prize tiers, with the lowest price at $1 and the highest at $34. In addition to this, TOTO also offers system roll, which involves choosing five numbers and selecting an additional ball that represents all other numbers available in the number pool.
TOTO has higher odds than some of the bigger lotteries, with a 1 in 13,983,816 chance of winning. The game also has rolling jackpots, so prizes are carried over if there is no winner for four draws in a row.
Despite the high winnings, people should exercise caution and be wary of scams. The police say that at least 55 people have lost $507,000 in 2023 to scammers who claimed to represent religious figures or be affiliated with them.
