Lottery Singapore is a popular way to win cash prizes in the country. It can be played in a variety of ways, including online and at physical outlets. These outlets are known for their competitive odds and multiple betting markets. Some offer mobile apps and other conveniences. They also have a number of payment options, including credit cards and online banking.
The lottery is legal in Singapore, but minors are prohibited from purchasing tickets. The country has long-established lottery traditions and a robust sports betting sector, with the Tote Board reporting a record SGD9.2 billion (US$6.8 billion) in ticket sales during the last financial year. This was partly due to the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions on gambling.
Singapore Pools is the only operator of legal lottery games in the country, with three different game types. The first is called 4 Digits or 4D, which offers fixed-odds betting and draws results every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. The other two are TOTO and Singapore Sweep, which both feature a million-dollar jackpot prize.
TOTO is a popular lottery game in Singapore that works by drawing six numbers plus an additional number. The lowest ticket price is $1, GST included. It has six prize tiers and a QuickPick option similar to the UK National Lottery and Europe’s EuroMillions. The game is available at all Singapore Pools outlets and draws take place twice a week. One man recently won a jackpot on TOTO after placing a bet on seven numbers generated by a next-generation chatbot in TikTok.
