About Lottery Singapore
Founded in 1968, Lottery Singapore (also known as Singapore Pools) is the only lottery operator in the country. It is a state-owned company that aims to curb illegal gambling in Singapore through the establishment of legal lottery games.
There are three main lottery games run by Singapore Pools – Toto, 4D, and Singapore Sweep. Each of these lotteries has different rules and prize pools.
Singapore Toto is a classic 6/49 game that features six numbers and an additional number, drawn twice a week – Monday and Thursday at 6.30 pm SG time. The cost per board is $1, and the minimum bet amount is also a dollar.
