Lottery Singapore is a government-run lottery company that operates three legal lotteries: 4D, Toto and Singapore Sweep. It was established in 1968 to help curb illegal gambling and betting in the country, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Tote Board, an entity that operates under the Ministry of Finance.
Lotteries are a popular way to win cash prizes in Singapore, and they have multiple tiers of cash prizes for players to choose from. Each lottery also has different rules and prize payouts.
The most popular lottery in Singapore is Toto, which features a $2 million jackpot and is available to play online or from physical outlets. Tickets can be purchased for a minimum of S$1 and can be redeemed for merchandise prizes and prize pools.
Toto has a standard 6/49 format, which means that players must choose six numbers from a pool of 49 and match all the winning numbers in order to win the jackpot. The game is played twice a week, on Monday and Thursday.
In addition to choosing six numbers, players can also opt for a system entry or system roll. This is a much more expensive option than an ordinary entry, and it comes with a higher chance of winning.
The official website of Lottery Singapore provides information on all games, including past results and prize payouts. It also allows players to sign up for email alerts and purchase tickets online. Additionally, Lottery Singapore has a dedicated mobile app that gives players live updates on drawing results.
