In 1968, the government of Singapore launched a lottery to ensure that the people of Singapore had a safe and fair way to play. It has since become one of the country’s most popular lottery games. The game is run by Singapore Pools, a company owned by the government.
There are three lotteries that Singapore Pools operates: 4D, TOTO and Singapore Sweep. Each has different rules and prize structures, so it is important to learn about the specifics of each before you start playing.
The 4D lottery is the most popular of the lotteries offered by Singapore Pools. It is a six-digit format where players choose six numbers from a pool that ranges from 1 to 49. The odds of winning are about 1 in 13,983,816, but you can increase your chances of a jackpot win by choosing a system entry or a system roll.
TOTO is a more standard lottery than 4D, but it offers players a much higher chance of winning the jackpot. It has a similar layout to 4D, but players must choose at least six numbers from the pool. In addition, there is a supplementary number that is chosen to determine a few of the prize tiers.
The TOTO jackpot varies from draw to draw. It can get quite high, but it also rolls down if there are no winners for four consecutive draws. There are seven prize tiers in total, each of which has a different payout structure.
