Lottery Singapore (or Toto in Singapore) is a lottery game that offers 6 numbers drawn at random from 1 to 49, and one additional number known as a “bonus”. It was first launched in 1968 and is the second most popular form of gambling in Singapore after 4-Digits.
The odds of winning a prize in Toto are better than US Powerball or Eurojackpot but not as good as other large jackpot lotteries. The minimum jackpot prize is $1 Million dollars and the jackpot rolls down if there are no winners for four consecutive draws.
Winnings from Toto are not taxable in Singapore. They are considered windfalls and not taxable income as they are not from employment, wages, interest, rental, salary or other non-employment income.
IRAS requires betting operators and lottery promoters to file a Statement with them by the 15th day after the last day of the month during which they conduct these activities. Failure to file a Statement by the due date is an offence and can result in IRAS enforcement actions against the betting operator or lottery promoter.
The official website of the Lottery Singapore provides information on the games and prize payouts. It also allows players to sign up for email alerts and purchase tickets online.
There are charts of past results available in the website and in SG Online Casino, which can be used to analyse previous 4D and Toto results. These charts can help players to avoid costly mistakes, such as purchasing tickets that have the wrong numbers or missing out on prizes due to errors.
