Toto is one of the most popular lottery games in Singapore and was first introduced by Singapore Pools in 1968. It is a multi-draw game with a snowballing jackpot that can roll over for up to four times before it is won by a lucky winner. The prize amounts vary depending on how many numbers you match in the draw and how much you placed in your bets.
Aside from the main jackpot, there are several other prizes that can be won with Toto. These include the main jackpot, a second-tier prize of up to S$200,000 and a third-tier prize of up to S$150,000.
You can buy Toto tickets at any Singapore Pools outlet or national authorized retailers for $3. Toto draws are held twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays.
