Lottery Singapore is the sole state operator that offers lottery and sports betting. It offers these products both through its retail outlets and online.
Among the various lottery forms sold in Singapore, three are the most popular: 4D, Toto and Singapore Sweep. These are all operated by Singapore Pools and have different appealing features that make them a preferred choice of many people in the country.
The 4D lottery is a game of chance where players select four numbers from 0000 to 9999. They can choose to bet a minimum of $1, inclusive of GST. The price rises if the player has at least three winning numbers. The jackpot prize for 4D is usually between a million and two million Singapore dollars, depending on the number of numbers in their ticket.
Toto is another legitimate form of lottery sold in Singapore, and is a joint venture between the state-owned Singapore Pools and Japan’s Toto Corporation. This form of lottery is drawn twice a week on Monday and Thursday. Its jackpot prizes are generally between a million and two million Singapore dollars, but the odds of hitting a major prize are 1 in 54.
Singapore Sweep is a fixed-odds lottery form that is owned by Singapore Pools. The results are announced on the first Wednesday of each month. The minimum bet for this game is $3, but the prize can go as high as $2.3 million if the player’s ticket matches all 19 seven-digit winning numbers.
