Singapore Lottery – What You Need to Know

The Singapore lottery is one of the most popular ways to win money in this country. It can be played online or in person. However, there are some things that you need to know before playing.

The only legal operator in Singapore is Singapore Pools, which has been operating lotteries since 1968. It offers a wide range of games, including 4D, Toto and Singapore Sweep. It also runs sports betting on cricket, football and horse racing.


This is a legitimate lottery form sold in Singapore that has different names around the world. It is held by Singapore Pools and has been the second most popular type of gambling activity after 4-Digits, ever since 2015.

TOTO draws take place twice a week at 6:30 pm (SG time). In addition to the ordinary game, there is a system roll that allows players to choose five numbers and an additional number to increase their odds of winning. This is a costlier option but it does have a higher prize pool.

Winnings from the Singapore lottery are not taxable. This is because they are windfalls that do not count as an income. In the case of a winning lottery ticket, you have up to 180 days from the draw date to claim your prize.

If you are a winner, you can pick up your prize from any of the Singapore Pools outlets across the country or at the SG Pools Main Branch located at 210 Middle Road. The SG Pools authorised agent will provide you with the necessary documentation to collect your prize.
