Lottery Singapore is a popular live hk pastime for many Singaporeans, with many hoping to strike it big with just a small bet. In the Tote Board’s last financial year, which ended in March 2021, more than $9.2 billion was spent on bets on 4-D and Toto games, as well as sports like football.
A Gojek driver who wished to remain anonymous told SAYS that he places bets of up to $400 a week on football matches. He is also a fan of Hong Bao Draw and Singapore Sweep, a lottery game that gives you the chance to win a condo for every seven numbers you get right.
Retired cartographer Tan Lee, 66, has been playing the Singapore Pools’ 4D lottery for more than 30 years. She told SAYS she would buy a flat in the heart of town if she won.
In addition to the 4D lottery, Singapore Pools offers other products such as SportsBet, a sport betting app with a range of local and international sports events. A single bet costs $1, including GST. You can also make system bets for Singapore Sweep and Hong Bao Draw, but you will need to pay more for this.
Winnings above $5,000 will be disbursed as cheques and are payable at the Singapore Pools main office (210 Middle Road, Singapore 188994), Mondays to Fridays (8am – 4.30pm, excluding Public Holidays). You must show your winning TOTO ticket and identification (NRIC for Singaporeans and PRs, or passport for foreigners) to claim your prize money. Unclaimed prizes are redirected to the Tote Board’s charities and donations funds.
