Singapore’s 4-D lottery is conducted by a branch of the Singapore Pools. The first 4-D draw was held in May 1966 with a first prize of S$2,000 for a single ticket. In 2004, Singapore Pools took over the lottery and introduced computerised betting for the 4-D game. On 31 May 1986, the lottery introduced an 8-Digits game, whose name means “prosperous” in Mandarin. The number “8” has a pronounced meaning of “prosperity” in Mandarin. It was welcomed by punters and increased turnover by over 215% in one year.
