Lottery Singapore is a state-owned lottery operator in Singapore. The company was established in 1968 and is the sole legal bookmaker in the country. It offers several lotteries including 4D, TOTO, and Singapore Sweep.
Its main purpose is to generate revenue and give back to its players. It does not charge any taxes on its winners and 54% of the proceeds go to charitable causes, community projects, and sports activities.
In a recent study, 52 percent of respondents in the SLP said they have purchased a lottery ticket at least once in the last 12 months. Moreover, 45 percent of the respondents purchase tickets regularly.
Despite the Covid-19 travel ban, gamblers are re-energizing their favourite pastimes and betting more than ever before. The Tote Board’s last financial year saw a 40 per cent increase in the amount of money punters placed as bets on 4-D, Toto and sports such as football.
There has also been a surge in the number of people playing online lotteries. These games can be played on a mobile device or computer and allow players to win digital tokens instead of cash.
To start playing, you need to create a lottery account and purchase tickets. Once you’ve registered, you can use your account to check your winnings and play a new game whenever you want.
The Singapore Pools lottery offers a wide range of games, each with a variety of prizes. The prices are low, and you can also make system bets. However, it’s important to know that there are some limitations to these games. For instance, you can’t choose more than 6 numbers in a single ticket.
