Lottery Singapore is a popular lottery game that is operated by the state-owned organization, Singapore Pools. The game offers a variety of prizes, including cash jackpots and additional prizes for matching specific digits in a ticket. The prize amounts vary, but winning a lottery prize is usually considered a windfall.
You can buy tickets for Lottery Singapore at a Singapore Pools outlet or at an authorized agent. There are also lottery kiosks in malls and other public places that sell tickets for a number of different lotteries. These outlets typically offer games like 4D and Toto, but some of them also sell international lotteries. You can check the results of a lottery draw after each drawing on the official website or through a mobile app.
The minimum cost to bet on a 4D ticket is $1, which includes GST. Each bet consists of selecting six numbers from 1 to 49. You can also make system bets, which involve selecting multiple sets of six numbers. The TOTO lottery draws take place every Monday and Thursday at 6.30 pm (Singapore time). If you get three or more of the winning numbers, you can win money.
You can check the results of a TOTO or Singapore Sweep lottery draw on the official Singapore Pools website or through the official app. You can also set up email or SMS alerts for the latest draw results. You can claim your winnings up to 180 days after the draw, but you must bring your ticket and identification (NRIC for Singaporeans and PRs or passport for foreigners). Unclaimed prizes are forfeited and channelled into donations and charitable grants managed by the Tote Board.
