The Singapore lottery is a popular game in Singapore. It is a gambling form that combines the fun of traditional games with the thrill of a jackpot.
The game is managed by Singapore Pools, the only legal lottery operator in the country. It offers three main games: Toto, Sweep and 4D. Among these, the most popular game is the four-digit 4D.

The sixth prize is offered at a rate of one in 83,333. Players can also earn a reward of $6 if the final two digits of the ticket match any of the nine winning two-digit numbers.
The first and the second prizes are offered at a rate of one in 2.4 million. Similarly, the third and the fourth prizes are at a rate of one in 416,667.
