SINGAPORE – Lottery Singapore is a legalized form of gambling and you can play it online or at a physical outlet. There are three major types of lottery games in this island city-state: 4D, Toto, and Singapore Sweep. Each has its own rules and payout structure.
4-D: A fixed-odds game
In this popular game, you choose 23 sets of four numbers and match all of them to win a prize. The draws take place every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday at 6.30 pm (SG time).
Toto: A manual game
In Singapore Toto, you choose six numbers from a pool of 49 and match all of them to win the jackpot. This lottery is very simple to play and does not have many complications or bonus numbers.
System roll: This is a more expensive way to play the lottery. You choose five numbers from a pool of 49 and one additional number, which is considered a rolling ball. You have to pay more for this option, but the odds of winning are better.
99JITU TOTO: Another popular type of lottery in Singapore, 99JITU TOTO is also held by Singapore Pools. It was first released on the market in 1968 and has become a very popular option among punters.
With the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, gamblers are back in action and spending more money on their favorite form of entertainment. In the Tote Board’s last financial year, SGD9.2 billion was spent on bets on lotteries and sports – a surge of 40 per cent from the previous year. This is the highest sum the statutory body has reported in the past decade.
