The Singapore Lottery is a lottery system operated by the Singapore Government. It is open to all residents of Singapore and foreigners. There are different ways to play the lottery. You can buy a ticket, select numbers, or have the system generate the numbers.
Players who want to participate in the lottery can purchase their tickets online. This saves time and is safer than purchasing from a physical vendor. If the prize is won, the prize can be claimed at a certified payout location.
There are several games to choose from in the Singapore lottery. The most popular is the 4-Digits lottery. It costs one dollar to play and players can select four numbers between 0000 and 9999. Other games include Toto, Powerball, and Mega Millions.
The lottery is regulated by the Tote Board. The Tote Board is the statutory body that oversees all lottery activities in Singapore. They have released a report that shows a 40% increase in sports betting and a 40% rise in lottery wagers.
In the past year, S$125 million in casino entry levies were collected. The Tote Board works with partners and the Casino Regulatory Authority to control gambling.
The Singapore government has been working on a new body that will focus on all forms of gambling. It is expected to be up and running by the middle of this year.
In April 2015, the second most popular form of gambling in Singapore was Toto. A total of SG$9.2 billion was wagered on various lotteries.
