The Toto lottery was first launched in Singapore on June 9, 1968. The format has since evolved, with snowballing and top-price increases added in 1981. In May 1986, Toto was made available online. Toto games used a 5/49 format. In 1988, the format changed to 6/42, then to 6/45, and then finally to 6/49. Since its launch, Toto has become a completely online lottery.

The lottery system is built on IGT’s Aurora platform, which allows external applications to integrate with the core lottery system.

Besides the online platform, Lottery Singapore has a physical presence in Indonesia and the US.
When playing the lottery, players select six numbers from one to 49. The lowest cost is $1, and the price goes up as the players’ selections get closer to the winning numbers.

Players who match three or more of the six winning numbers win a prize. Moreover, players can check the results online or through a mobile app. Players can also purchase demand-printed lottery tickets at participating outlets.
