There are three main types of lotteries in Singapore: 4D, Toto and Singapore Sweep. All lottery games are operated by the state-owned company Singapore Pools.
Among the many benefits of playing a lottery in Singapore is that there is no income tax. This is a big bonus for people who win prizes and would like to keep the money they earn from their lottery winnings.
The government has also urged the public to be on guard against scams in Singapore. These scams involve offering lottery tickets to unsuspecting victims and then requesting that they transfer money or pay administrative fees before the winners can receive their prize.
A woman who won SG$200,000 in a lottery scam was unable to collect her prize because her friend who helped her purchase the ticket disappeared, reported The Straits Times. The police warned that it is best to check the legitimacy of any lottery agency before buying tickets or agreeing to money transfers.
Players are not allowed to buy tickets online from overseas websites. The only way to play online is to use an official site of Singapore Pools. This site will monitor your IP address and block outside players.
In the event that you have a winning ticket, you must claim your prize within 180 days. You can do this by registering your account with the official website of Singapore Pools and making your payment via PayPal or other online banking services.
