The lottery is one of the most popular gambling activities in Singapore. It is regulated by the government and operated by a company called Singapore Pools. The main games offered include 4-Digits, Toto, and Singapore Sweep. They can be played at a variety of outlets and online. The prizes offered can range from a few hundred dollars to millions of dollars. The winnings are not taxable, but they must be reported to the authorities.
The company is also the sole bookmaker and totaliser for association football and motor racing betting in Singapore. It is a state-owned subsidiary of the Tote Board, which is a statutory body under the Ministry of Finance. Its operations are governed by the Gambling Act and the Lotteries and Gaming Control Act.
Depending on the type of game, the prize payout structure can vary. For example, the 4D Lottery pays out a winner only if they match all 23 sets of winning numbers drawn in each draw. The Toto Lottery, on the other hand, requires at least three correct numbers to win a prize.
In addition, the holder of the winning ticket has the absolute right to the entire prize. The Company may make translations of these Rules available, but the English version shall be considered authoritative. Any disputes arising out of these Rules are subject to the decision of the Company, which is final and conclusive.
