Lottery Singapore

Lottery Singapore is a popular form of gambling that includes 4D, Toto, Big Sweep, and sports betting. It is legal in Singapore and is operated by a company called Singapore Pools.

The only legal lottery operator in Singapore, Singapore Pools is regulated by the Tote Board. It has a network of outlets across the country and operates a number of other gambling activities, including horse racing.

Singapore Pools’ other lotteries include 4-D, Toto and Singapore Sweep. The company also offers sports betting on football and motor racing, as well as a variety of other games.

In Singapore, lottery winnings are tax-free. However, there are certain conditions that must be met in order to claim these winnings.

To claim your prize money, you need to produce a copy of the lottery ticket, or a letter from the lottery promoter stating that you are entitled to the winnings. You must also provide proof that you are a Singapore resident or citizen.

Another important aspect is to ensure that you are not a victim of a lottery scam. Scammers often target people through unsolicited messages on WhatsApp or social media platforms.

A woman in Singapore was recently denied her winnings after a friend of hers ran away with the tickets she bought on her behalf. She posted the story in a closed Facebook group to warn others against requesting other people to make their lottery bets for them.

She and her colleagues eventually collected evidence to lodge a police report. They presented a text conversation and PayNow transactions with the friend, along with a picture of the lottery ticket. The police told them that they could not intervene as the issue was deemed to be between private parties.
