Lottery Singapore is one of the most popular gambling activities in the country. It is a legal form of gambling that is run by Singapore Pools, the only state-owned lottery operator in the country. It has been around for nearly 50 years and has won many people’s hearts over the decades. It was established in 1968 to moderate illegal gambling.
The company offers four main games – 4D, Toto, Singapore Sweep, and 99Jitu TOTO. Each game has different prize tiers, and players can purchase tickets online or at the participating outlets. The prizes are determined by matching the winning numbers with the winning numbers drawn in each draw.
These games are easy to play and can be a fun way to try your luck. A single ticket costs only a few dollars, and the chances of winning are quite high. Plus, there are systems – whole books – you can use to improve your odds of winning the big prize.
In the last financial year, which ended in March 2022, the Tote Board reported that more than S$9.2 billion was wagered on lotteries and sports betting. This is a huge increase from the previous year, as the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions encouraged gamblers to spend money on these products. Singapore Pools and the Singapore Turf Club also benefited from this, as they were among the first operators to resume operations after the circuit breaker was lifted.
