Among the many gambling games in Singapore, the lottery is one of the most popular. In April 2015, the lottery was the second-most popular gambling activity in the country.
The lottery in Singapore is organized by the government-owned lottery service provider, Singapore Pools. They also offer other lottery games like Singapore Sweep and 4D. They are a socially responsible gaming service provider that has played a significant role in changing the gambling industry in Singapore.
The Singapore lottery can be played at retail outlets, online and on mobile devices. Players can choose six numbers between 1 and 49. The numbers are randomly selected by a special computer. This computer then picks the set of draw balls.
If all six numbers are drawn, a jackpot prize will be awarded. The player’s prize amount will also depend on the rank of the numbers drawn. If the player doesn’t win, the prize will roll over to the next draw.
The Singapore Sweep lottery is held every month on the first Wednesday. Players can buy tickets for $3 at Singapore Pools. The results are announced the following day.
The four-digit game known as 4D was the most popular game in Singapore when the early 2000s. The game is overseen by an independent external auditor. Anyone aged 18 or above can attend the game.
The Toto lottery is also held by Singapore Pools. It’s a two-digit game that can be played on desktops or mobile devices. The game’s minimum jackpot is SGD one million.
