Lottery Singapore: How to win a jackpot
The island nation is home to three major lottery games, each with its own set of rules and prize pools. These include 4D, Toto and Singapore Sweep.
Generally, these are games of chance where you pick numbers and hope to match them with the winning numbers. Each game has different tiers of prizes that vary in odds. You can also check the results of your favourite lottery game online or on the Singapore Pools mobile app.
How to win a jackpot
The main type of lottery sold in Singapore is 4-Digits, which is a fixed-odds game with a draw every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 6.30 pm (SG time). In the event that no one wins the top prize, it is cascaded to the next winner’s tier.
Another popular game in Singapore is Toto, which is a lottery form that’s run by Singapore Pools. It’s a legalised form of lottery that comes with different names around the world, but has been operated in Singapore since 1968.
In order to play this game, you must be 18 years or older and possess a valid NRIC or passport. Winnings can be claimed at any Singapore Pools outlet or via their official website.
The only authorised lottery promoter and betting operator in Singapore is Singapore Pools, and you must submit your Statement of Betting Activities to IRAS by the 15th day after the last day of the month during which the races/events/draws take place. If you do not file your Statement, IRAS will impose gambling duties on you and you could face enforcement action.
