Lottery Singapore is one of the most popular games among locals. It’s a classic game that offers great prizes and fair odds. However, it can be a bit expensive.
The cheapest way to play is by buying the 4D lottery at $1, inclusive of GST. This is a relatively small bet and you can always spend more to get added privileges like system bets or a bigger jackpot.
Aside from the 4D Lottery, there are two other types of Singapore Pools lotteries you can try out. These include Toto and Singapore Sweep.
Toto is a lottery that involves selecting six numbers and an additional number. The winning numbers are then drawn and if you have at least three of the six numbers matching the numbers that have been drawn, you win the jackpot prize.
This lottery also comes with an extra entry form that can help boost your odds. The form allows you to select more than six numbers, though it does come with a slightly higher price tag.
The Tote Board, a statutory body that governs lottery operator Singapore Pools and the Singapore Turf Club, which operates horse races, reported that gamblers placed a record amount of money on lotteries and sports bets in the last financial year, which ended in March 2022. This was a 40 per cent increase from the year before.
The easing of COVID-19 restrictions has seen punters back in action, with a significant spike in the amounts spent on 4-D and Toto bets. In the previous financial year, gamblers placed a total of SGD9.2 billion on these products.
