The Singapore lottery is the second largest form of gambling in the country after 4D. The most popular lottery games in Singapore are Toto and Sweep. It is also possible to play the lottery outside the island.
The Tote Board is a statutory body that is tasked to regulate lotteries, horse racing and sports betting in Singapore. It also manages the Singapore Turf Club.
In the last fiscal year ending March, SG$9.2 billion was wagered on lotteries and sports bets. This is the highest amount since the past decade.
In addition, the Tote Board announced that wagers on lottery games rose 40% from the previous year. The increase was partly due to the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, which allowed more people to bet.
The Singapore Toto Lotto first started in 1968. The game has evolved over the years and has changed formats several times. In 1988, the prize was increased to SGD$500,000 and in 2014, the jackpot was expanded to SGD$1 million.
In the early 2000s, the game was the most popular in the country. However, the odds of winning the jackpot were not very high. To increase your chances of winning, it is recommended to play multiple games. The more games you play, the higher your chances are of hitting the jackpot.
The results of the Singapore lottery are posted on the official website every day at 6.30pm. The winner’s names are not publicly disclosed. If you are a lucky one, your prize will be transferred to your bank account within days.
