In Singapore, lottery is a popular form of gambling that involves drawing numbers for prizes. The games are regulated by the government, and minors are not allowed to participate. The games are also played online. The winnings are awarded based on the number of matching numbers and their order, as well as the prize categories.
Singapore Pools conduct over 250 draws each year for their lottery games. Each draw follows strict security guidelines and is supervised by an independent auditor to ensure fairness. In addition, the rules and procedures for each lottery game are carefully reviewed to ensure compliance with best practices.
Lottery players in Singapore are spending more than ever. The Tote Board, the statutory lottery and sports betting control body, reported a record SGD9.2 billion in wagered money last financial year. This was a 43% increase over the previous year. The easing of COVID-19 restrictions has helped spur the growth.
There are three main types of lottery in Singapore. The first is known as the 4 Digits lottery, or 4D. The lottery is run by Singapore Pools and takes place every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday at 6:30 pm SG time. The results are published on the 4D website and can be watched live on TV. If you match at least one of the 23 sets of winning numbers, you win a prize. The second type of lottery is the Toto lottery, which is run by Singapore Pools and first launched in 1968. The Toto lottery is similar to the 4D lottery, with the difference that it requires you to choose at least six numbers and an additional number. The Toto lottery draws are held every Monday and Thursday at 6:30 pm SG time, although the times may change for special or cascade draws.
