Singapore Lottery is one of the most popular forms of gambling in the country. In fact, in the financial year ending March 2023, punters spent a record $10.3 billion on the games. This is a 12 per cent increase on the previous year’s figure and topped even the World Cup betting.

The history of Singapore lottery began in 1968 with the creation of Singapore pools. It started out as a manual system and only in 1981 did the jackpot start to grow with each draw. This was due to the massive popularity of the game. The company then added a rollover feature in the same year, allowing jackpots to grow if there were no winners for a specific draw.

In the following years, the game became more popular and by the time the company reached its current size, it had over 580,000 members. It has since grown into an international gaming brand and is now one of the largest in Asia. Today, the company offers more than 300 branches and authorised retail outlets, where players can play Toto, 4D and Singapore Sweep, as well as sports bets and horse races.

Toto was the first game to be introduced by Singapore Pools in 1968. It was originally a manual system, but it became computerized in 1977 and is now run entirely by computers. The system also allows players to select multiple numbers to increase their chances of winning. It has changed over the years and in 1988 it was converted from a five-out-of-49 format to a six-out-of-45 game with an assured top prize of $300,000.

These Rules are published by Singapore Pools (Private) Limited for The Singapore Sweep Lottery and constitute a contract between the Company and each Participant. The Company reserves the right to amend these Rules from time to time, which amendments will be notified on its website. If a Participant continues to place Bets after such amended Rules have been published, the Participant will be deemed to have accepted and agreed to the amended Rules.

A copy of these Rules may be obtained at any Singapore Pools branch or authorised retailer. This document should be carefully read before you place your bets. You should also keep a copy of your ticket for future reference. It should contain the logo, entry type, your choice of numbers, the draw date, security number, barcode and the price. It is important to keep the ticket safe because you will need it when you claim your prize.
