Lottery Singapore offers a wide range of lottery games for the public to enjoy. Players can purchase tickets online or at physical outlets. These can be used to win prize payouts and jackpot prizes.
The official website of Lottery Singapore also provides real-time results for all games. It also allows players to sign up for email alerts and purchase tickets from the comfort of their homes.
In addition, players can check their winning numbers at the website or in-person at Singapore Pools outlets. This will help them match their numbers to previous draws and prevent errors from reducing their prize payouts.
Aside from lottery games, Singapore Pools also offers sports betting. These include football and motor racing bets.
The number of people who bet on lotteries and sports has risen dramatically in recent years. The Singaporean government has relaxed Covid-19 measures, and this led to a 40% increase in the amount spent on these bets in the last financial year – the 2021/22 fiscal year.
Besides Singapore Pools, other regulated lotteries in Singapore are 4-D and Toto. The Tote Board regulates all these games, as well as sports betting.
Legalities and Regulations
The Lotteries Act defines a lottery as “any game which involves the drawing, throwing, declaring or exhibiting expressly or otherwise, a winner or winning number, ticket, lot, figure, design, symbol or other result of a lottery.”
A person who conducts a lottery is liable to be prosecuted under section 9 of this Act. He or she can be arrested and charged with violating the act if the police believe that the person has committed a serious offence.
