Lottery Singapore is a state-owned lottery subsidiary company that organizes four-digital (4D), Toto and Singapore Sweep lotteries in the country. It is also the sole legal bookmaker and totalisator for association football and motor racing betting. In addition, it has an extensive network of over 3,000 outlets. Singapore Pools’ customer service is available via phone, email and online chat. It is easy to check lottery results, and players can set up alerts and receive notifications after each draw.
Although the government has a policy against gambling, there are no signs of problem gambling in Singapore. In fact, a recent study suggests that lottery wins improve well-being. The authors found that when lottery-expenditure variables are incorporated into happiness and life satisfaction equations, the coefficient on lottery winnings is statistically significant, even after controlling for other factors such as income, education, and health.
While Singapore Pools does offer online ticket purchasing for Toto, the tickets can only be purchased on the country’s territory. In addition, you will need a valid Singapore passport to purchase the tickets.
Despite these restrictions, the chances of winning are quite high. Moreover, the prizes are very generous. In the past, several people have won big prizes from the Toto and Singapore Sweep lottery games. The winnings are also tax-free in Singapore. This is because the government is generating revenue from the games and does not need to levy additional taxes on winners. The lottery industry in the country is thriving and will continue to grow.
