Lottery Singapore is a state-owned lottery company that is responsible for running various lottery games. Its portfolio includes Toto, Singapore Sweep and 4-D, among others.
Aside from offering a range of affordable lottery games, it also does not require players to pay any taxes on winnings. This is a major advantage for players because they do not have to deal with any bureaucracy, making it easy for them to claim their prize money.
4D – The Freshest Way to Win (Weekly, Daily)
The Singapore Pools’ 4D lottery has been around since 1986. It is a fixed-odds game that involves a unique number selection process. It features 23 sets of numbers and is drawn every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 6.30 pm.
TOTO – The Traditional Draw-style Lottogame
TOTO is a traditional lottery game that features six winning numbers and an additional number. The jackpot prize is won if the player has all 6 numbers correct, but there are smaller cash prizes available too.
In the past financial year, a record amount of sums were placed on 4-D, Toto and sports bets. This surge was said to have been driven by the easing of Covid-19 curbs, which allowed punters to place bets on these games.
Several people have been victims of fraudsters who pose as lottery agents and lure them into buying lottery tickets for them. These scammers then request them to transfer a certain amount of money before they could claim their winnings. The Singapore National Council on Problem Gaming recommends the use of the ScamShield app, which helps prevent such scams from happening.
