The Singapore lottery is a popular form of entertainment in Singapore. Whether you are a novice or a professional, buying a ticket is a thrill.
The lottery is available on both the internet and physical outlets. Purchasing online saves you the hassle of standing in line. However, it is important to find a legitimate online vendor.
The Tote Board, which governs horse racing in Singapore, is responsible for overseeing the lotteries. Several lotteries, including Singapore Sweep, Toto, and 4Digits, are administered by Singapore Pools.
It is the only legal gambling operator in Singapore. During the first financial year of the Tote Board, which ended March, it was responsible for overseeing the sports betting products.
In the second financial year, it was also responsible for running the lottery. IGT Global Services signed a six-year contract to provide lottery services to Singapore Pools. This includes the Aurora central system, which supports a large number of daily transactions.
Lottery games in Singapore have rolling jackpots. If no prize winner is drawn for four consecutive draws, the jackpot rolls down.
The Tote board spokesman said that the amount of money bet on the lottery and sports increased after the COVID-19 restrictions were lifted. The amount spent on sports betting was the largest in ten years.
Several lottery players in Singapore have won big. Those who bet on Toto, the simplest game, have won as much as $10 million in the past.
A lucky punter has also won $5.68 million in the lottery last November. He bought his winning ticket from an authorised retailer at Orchard Plaza.
