The online version of Lottery Singapore is convenient, safe, and easy to use. A person can play on their phone or a laptop, and can also get results via email. However, it’s important to make sure that your device is compatible with the lottery website, as some can’t view it on certain platforms. It also pays to make sure that you know how many balls are in the lottery, as weighted balls will give you a better chance of winning.
The Singapore Lottery is operated by Singapore Pools, a state-owned company. The company has a long and interesting history. It began as a way to get rid of illegal betting. In fact, the company is so old, it’s been around since 1986. As a state-owned corporation, the original purpose of the Singapore Pools was to prevent illegal gambling. But as the years passed, the company’s business model has changed.
There are two main games in the lottery: Toto and 4D. Toto has two drawings each week and the jackpot rolls over after each drawing. Toto is the longest-running lottery in Singapore. While 4D was launched a year after Toto, it offers players the same game, though some flexibility in bets and some options.
Players can purchase a single ticket for just $1 with GST included. The lowest prize of a single lottery ticket is S$1, while the highest prize is S$49. The odds of winning any prize are 1 in 54. The jackpot is on a rolling basis, so if there is no winner in four consecutive draws, the jackpot rolls down and the prizes are divided among lower-tier prize winners.
