Whether you are a Singapore resident or a foreigner, you can participate in the Singapore Lottery. This form of gambling has become one of the most popular activities in the country. You can choose your own numbers and hope to be lucky enough to win a cash prize.
The Singapore Lottery offers prizes ranging from S$1 to millions. Tickets cost S$2 each. Each ticket gives you just one chance to win. It is important to play responsibly.
Singapore Pools is the only licensed lottery operator in the country. Since 2004, they have provided more than $5 billion in taxes to the government.
In the last financial year, wagers on lottery games increased by 40%. These increased bets are aimed at games like Toto and 4D.
The Tote Board is the statutory body that regulates Singapore Pools. They operate horse races, channel gaming surpluses from Singapore Turf Club, and oversee lotteries.
The Tote Board’s last annual report was released in March. It noted that SG$9.2 billion was spent on lotteries and sports in the past decade.
Gambling spending in the country has also risen since COVID-19 restrictions were eased. A new body will be created to take over regulation of all forms of gambling in the coming years.
Toto is the second most popular betting game in the country after 4Digits. Players choose from seven random numbers between 1 and 49. After winning, the jackpot rolls over to the next drawing.
