In the first four decades of legal lottery play in Singapore, the lottery was limited to two digits. In 1966, a schoolboy’s raffle gave rise to the first four-digit lottery in Singapore. In 1985 and 1986, on-line toto betting was introduced in The Straits Times (p. 8). The next month, the Singapore Monitor and the New Nation published an article about the lottery. In both publications, the lottery was described as a success.
The four-digit numbers are drawn at random from a pool of more than six million numbers. Winners are given a number between one and nine, based on a mathematical formula. This formula is called TOTO. There are several ways to improve your odds of winning, including the use of systems that increase your chances of hitting a winning number. Singapore Pools holds over 250 draws a year, and each drawing is conducted under strict security and draw procedures.
Another form of lottery in Singapore is called the 4D Lottery, run by the government-owned Singapore Pools. Players can wager on permutations of four numbers from 0000 to nine hundred and ninety-nine. The 4D lottery is the most popular form of gambling in Singapore. It was introduced in 1956. In 2006, the game brought in a record-breaking $14 million in a single draw. In the following years, Singapore’s lottery has expanded to include more than one-digit lottery games.
