A popular way to pass time in Singapore, Lottery Singapore offers a variety of lottery games. These include Toto and Singapore Sweep. In addition, players can also play 4D games.
Toto (known by different names elsewhere) was first introduced in 1968 and is held by Singapore Pools, the only legal lottery operator in Singapore. This lottery can be purchased online and from participating outlets in Singapore. Its jackpot prize can be up to $2 million.
The Toto draw takes place on Monday and Thursday at 6:30 pm SG time. It is a cascade draw, meaning that the jackpot prize will be carried over to the next draw if no one wins.
There are several other prizes available for Toto, including merchandise prizes. Tickets for Toto can be purchased online or from participating outlets. You can also watch the Toto draw live at Singapore Pools’ branches or via e-mail.
Founded in 1969, Singapore Sweep is a lottery that is owned by Singapore Pools and is drawn on the first Wednesday of every month. This lottery has a prize of $1,000 for matching 19 seven-digit numbers and can go up to $2.3 million if you match all nine winning two-digit numbers.
In the last financial year, Singapore Pools saw an increase in the amount people spend on lottery and sports bets. This was the highest amount in the past decade, The Straits Times reported. This was attributed to relaxed Covid-19 measures and the resumption of sports tournaments.
