Lotter Singapore is a state monopoly that provides the only legal avenue to place bets on games like 4D, TOTO, and Singapore Sweep. It offers a range of prizes across different tiers, with the top prize for the TOTO lottery surpassing the million-dollar mark. The Singapore Sweep lottery also has a progressive jackpot that increases each week until it is won.
The easing of Covid-19 curbs has seen punters take to the betting tables in droves, driving the number of bets placed on 4D and Toto to a record high. In the financial year ended March 2022, Tote Board collected a total of S$9.2 billion in bets on lotteries and sports betting. This is up by about 40% from the previous year.
A Gojek driver, who wanted to be known only as Mr Cho, said he bets up to $400 a week on football matches at Singapore Pools. He also takes part in the TOTO Hong Bao lottery, which has multiple tiers of prizes ranging from a minimum of $20,000 to the top prize of $1 million.
While it’s important to save money, a little bit of gambling can be fun too. The trick is to be smart about it. There are many ways to increase your chances of winning by buying multiple tickets or using additional privileges like system bets. However, you should always remember that it’s a game of chance and there are no surefire ways to guarantee success.
