The Singapore lottery has long been a popular pastime in the city-state. In the last financial year, the Tote Board reported a record sum wagered on lotteries and sports betting.
4D and Toto: The Singapore Lottery is operated by Singapore Pools (Private) Limited, a state-owned lottery subsidiary company. Originally incorporated in 1968 to curb illegal gambling, Singapore Pools is the sole operator of lotteries in the country.
Toto: TOTO is one of the most popular games in Singapore, with a prize pool of $2.8 million per draw. In a TOTO game, players choose six numbers from a pool of 1 to 49. In addition to the jackpot, there are several other tiers for prizes.
System entry: A system entry gives players a higher chance of winning but comes with a much higher price tag than an ordinary entry. For example, System 8 costs 28 times as much as an ordinary bet and System 12 is 914 times more expensive.
Singapore Sweep: The Singapore Sweep is a similar game to Toto. In this game, players choose six numbers and an additional number is drawn. The first number in each group determines the jackpot, while the second and third tiers are determined by the numbers drawn from the rolling ball.
To avoid facing prosecution, authorised betting operators and lottery promoters must file the Gambling Statement for each race/event/draw by the 15th day of the month following the end of the month that you conduct these bets. Failure to do so is an offence, but IRAS may allow you to avoid prosecution by paying a composition amount.
