Singapore Lottery

singapore lottery

The Singapore lottery is one of the most popular and widely played lotteries in Asia. Its jackpot begins at a staggering S$1 million and increases each week until it is won by someone lucky enough to match all six main winning lottery numbers drawn.

The odds of winning a Toto prize are very competitive and can be won by matching all 6 of the main numbers drawn, or by matching just 3 or more. The odds of winning a 5th division prize are 1 in 1,083, while the overall odds for winning any Toto prize are 1 in 54.

This is because SG Toto uses a “6/49 matrix” whereby you have to choose six lottery numbers from a number range of 1 to 49. Then an additional number is drawn from the 43 remaining undrawn numbers which is used to determine who wins on prize levels 2, 4 and 6 of the Toto Singapore game.

Toto draws are held twice a week on Monday and Thursday nights. The cost of a Toto ticket is S$1 and there are no limits to the number of times you can play.

SG Pools is the only Singapore lottery operator that is authorized and licensed by the Tote Board. It runs several lottery games including Toto Singapore, 4-D and Singapore Sweep as well as sports betting.

Singapore Pools also has a strong charitable ethos, and donates lottery monies to many community projects. This includes funds for local children’s centres, sports facilities, and homecare services for elderly residents.
