Lottery Singapore is a state-owned lottery subsidiary company set up in 1968 and it is the only operator that is legally allowed to organize lotteries in the country. The organization operates three different games – Toto, 4D, and Singapore Sweep – as well as more than 300 outlets throughout the country that facilitate ticket purchases. In addition to conducting legal gambling operations, the firm also provides charitable and social welfare activities through its subsidiaries.
Unlike other operators, Singapore Pools does not collect extra taxes from winning players – a practice that has helped them keep their reputation as one of the most reliable and trustworthy operators globally. Moreover, winning a prize with this operator is relatively easy as there are no bureaucratic barriers and you can simply visit any outlet to claim your winnings.
Toto, the most popular game in Singapore, was launched in 1968 and over the following years, a few changes were made to the lottery’s gameplay and technology. In 1981, for instance, the jackpot changed from a non-progressive one to a progressive one. This change resulted in the creation of massive jackpots that could easily reach millions of dollars.
The Toto results are announced every Monday and Thursday at 6:30 PM (Singapore time). Winners will be notified by phone or email, and their prizes can be claimed from any of the official lottery outlets. Those who wish to play online can do so at the official website or by using a mobile app.
