Lottery Singapore is one of the oldest lottery games in the world. It was first launched in 1968 to curb illegal gambling. Today, it offers players a chance to win millions of dollars.
Unlike other lotteries, you can play Lottery Singapore from the comfort of your home. You can purchase tickets online, or in authorised retail outlets.
The prize amounts for the Singapore Lottery range from $1 to $2 million. Players can choose from single tickets or sets of tickets. They also have the option of buying a set of numbers to increase their chances of winning.
To win the main prize, you must match all six numbers drawn. If no one wins the jackpot for four draws in a row, the jackpot rolls down to the lower tiers. When you win, you must claim the prize within 90 days of the draw. Failure to do so can result in fines.
As the only legal lottery company in Singapore, Singapore Pools (Private) Limited operates the game. They provide a wide variety of games, including Toto, Sweep, and 4D.
You can purchase your tickets online through the official lottery website. This site also offers a calculator and a chat window. You can register for e-mail alerts.
You can also purchase tickets from authorized retail outlets or from the official mobile app. You can pay for your tickets with your credit card or PayPal. However, you must pay by the due date. Alternatively, you can make a cheque payable to the Commissioner of Gambling Duties.
