Founded in 1968, Lottery Singapore is the only legal lottery operator in the city state. Its portfolio of games includes 4-Digits, Toto, and Singapore Sweep.
The Toto game is played for a S$1 price and players choose six numbers from the number pool that ranges from 1 to 49. There are seven prize tiers and the jackpot starts at S$1 million, but rolls down to a lower tier if there are no winners in four consecutive draws.
You can purchase tickets from any authorized Singapore Pools outlet or at the main office. Alternatively, you can buy online. You can play 4D online only if you have a local IP address and an official account with Singapore Pools.
It is also possible to request a friend or colleague to place a bet on your behalf, but it should only be done when you have the money to pay them back. This practice is often cited in Chinese news reports as a cause of gambling-related theft, and it can be quite a hassle.
The TOTO game is a relatively standard 6/49 format, and it offers the same type of gameplay as 4D Lotto. However, the jackpots are not as high or as lucrative as those of other international lotteries.
Despite these shortcomings, TOTO has decent prizes and fair odds of winning. In addition, it is a relatively inexpensive game to play and offers two additional entry form offerings that can improve your chances of winning.
