The Singapore Lottery is one of the most popular forms of gambling in the country. It is a legalized lottery run by Singapore Pools. Players can check live results and check their tickets on the official website. There are also several mobile apps that provide real-time lottery results. The lottery website has a section that allows players to sign up for email alerts.
Upon purchasing a Ticket and/or placing a Bet, the Participant and/or Claimant agrees to be bound by these Singapore Sweep Lottery Rules. The Company may make available translations of these Rules. However, in the event of any discrepancy between the English version of these Rules and any such translated versions, the English version shall prevail.
A lot of people in Singapore spend a significant amount on lottery tickets every year. In the Tote Board’s last financial year, which ended in March 2022, $9.2 billion was spent on lotteries and sports betting, a spike of about 40 per cent from the previous year. This shows that the easing of Covid-19 curbs has encouraged punters to come out and enjoy their favorite games, boosting revenues.
The lottery is regulated by the Tote Board, a statutory body that oversees lottery operator Singapore Pools and the Singapore Turf Club, which runs horse races. It is also the sole legal bookmaker and totalisator for association football and motor racing bets in Singapore. Since its inception in 1968, the Toto lotto has gone through several changes and enhancements. In 1981, it switched from a non-progressive jackpot to a progressive jackpot that continues to grow until a winner is found.
