Singapore Pools is a state-owned lottery subsidiary company and the sole legal bookmaker and totalisator for 4D and TOTO lotteries in Singapore. Since its incorporation on 23 May 1968, it has been a key contributor to the government’s efforts to curb illegal gambling activities in Singapore.
Licensed and regulated by the Tote Board, the company is the only legal operator that conducts lotteries in Singapore. Its operations include lottery draws, football betting and motor racing.
The Singapore Pools website states that it operates a large portfolio of lottery games, including TOTO and 4D. These games are primarily sold at authorised retailers, but can also be played online and by telephone from anywhere in the world.
TOTO is an ordinary 6/49 game where players choose six numbers from a pool ranging from 1 to 49. This is followed by a drawing that takes place twice a week. The game has a jackpot prize of one million dollars and prizes start at $1.
It is a popular game with a high jackpot prize. The odds of winning the first prize are one in 13,983,816.
There are a number of ways to win in TOTO, including matching 3 or more numbers for a $10 prize. The game has been around for over 30 years and the odds are still very good for a big prize.
The latest Singapore Pools lottery results show that many people are winning lots of money. In the last financial year, a record $9.2bn was placed in bets on lotteries and sports, a 40 percent increase over the previous year’s COVID-afflicted total of $6.6bn.
