The Singapore Lottery is one of the most popular forms of gambling in the country. The game was first introduced in 1968 as a way to curb illegal betting. It has since evolved to become the most played form of gambling in Singapore.
The results are released on a weekly basis and can be found online. Players can choose from a variety of games including Toto and 4-D.
The lottery is run by Singapore Pools (Private) Ltd. This is the only authorised lottery promoter in the country.
Singapore Pools is an established company that has grown over the years to be one of the most well known companies in the country. They offer excellent rewards and easy purchasing methods.
The four digit game is the most popular of the lotteries. Anyone aged 18 or older can play the game. Draws are held every Wednesday and Saturday. There are five draw officials to oversee the draws.
The top prize in the 4D lottery has increased in value over the years. In 2004, the top prize was a whopping two million Singapore dollars.
In January 2022, two lucky punters won a $10 million grand prize. One of them bought the ticket at a QuickPick System 7 at Tampines Mall. Another purchased the ticket from an authorised retailer at Orchard Plaza.
As of March 2022, the total amount spent on lotteries and sports was SGD9.2 billion. Of that, $6.6 billion was wagered in the previous financial year.
