Singapore Pools lottery offers a range of different ways to win, including 4D, Toto and Singapore Sweep. Its jackpots can get quite high and the odds of winning are pretty decent, though they’re not as good as those of bigger international lotteries like US Powerball and Eurojackpot.
The Odds of Winning the Singapore Jackpot are 1 in 13,983,816
A jackpot prize can be won if you match all six numbers drawn in a single draw. It’s also possible to win the lower tier prizes by matching one or two of the seven numbers that are randomly selected in each draw.
The minimum jackpot is S$1 million and can be won by matching three numbers in a single draw. However, the jackpot rolls down if there is no winner for four consecutive draws.
This is called a “cascading draw”, and the jackpot will be carried over for the next draw. The prize is then split amongst the winners of the lower tier prizes, which are divided into 7 categories.
There are several systems that can be used to improve your chances of winning a Singapore Pools jackpot, though these come with a price tag. The main system involves selecting a set of 8 numbers and costs 28 times as much as an ordinary bet combination.
Another option is to use the System 7 form which is only available at certain outlets. This option requires you to choose a minimum of five numbers from a pool of 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
In addition, players are able to boost their chances of winning with the purchase of two additional entry forms for TOTO. These include the System 8 and System 9 entry forms, which allow you to choose a maximum of eight numbers and cost 28 times as much.
