The Singapore Lottery is one of the oldest lottery games in the world. It is organized by a state-owned company called Singapore Pools. Players can purchase tickets online or in retail outlets. They can also play through a mobile application.
To win a jackpot prize, players must match all six numbers drawn in a draw. In addition, players can increase their chances of winning by buying additional tickets. There is also a QuickPick option, which is similar to the Lucky Dip in some US lottery games.
The Singapore Lottery is a free game to play. The odds of winning a prize are very low. Usually, the odds of winning the jackpot are one in 13,987,816.
The lottery is regulated by the Tote Board. For the last financial year, which ended March 2016, the total amount wagered on lotteries and sports was SGD9.2 billion. This amount was an increase of 43% over the previous year.
The government-owned Singapore Pools is the only legal lottery operator in the country. Aside from the four main lottery games, the company offers motor racing, football, and telephone gambling.
The official website of the Singapore Lottery provides information on how to play, how to buy tickets, and tips on winning. You can also check out past results and register for e-mail alerts.
When purchasing a ticket, you can choose to pay by credit card or PayPal. Tickets are also available at authorized retail outlets in Singapore.
