The Singapore Lottery is run by Singapore Pools. They are the only legal lottery operator in the country. They have been in business since 1986. Their procedures are regularly reviewed by an independent public accounting firm. They have over 250 draws per year and conduct them according to stringent security guidelines.
There are several types of lottery games in the country, including the Toto game. You have to pick six numbers out of a pool of 49. You can purchase these tickets at any Singapore Pools outlet. You can also play online.
Aside from the Toto game, Singapore Pools offers Sweep and 4Digits. These are more conventional games than the Toto. The Sweep game has a one in eleven chance of winning and the first prize is doubled to $2 million in 2004. The 4D game is a four digit game that requires you to choose a four digit number from 0000 to 9999.
The 4D game is a great way to test your luck. You can choose your own numbers or let the system generate your numbers. You can choose between a $1 bet or a $2 bet. You can also choose to play on the internet, using your laptop or smartphone.
