The Singapore lottery is a fun and convenient way to win big money. It can be played online or at local outlets. It is also a great way to invest and save. However, it does have some risks. If you are not careful, you may get scammed.
Singapore Pools is the only legal lottery operator in Singapore. It offers three main lotteries: 4-D, Toto and Singapore Sweep. The games offer several tiers of cash prizes and can be played from anywhere with a computer or mobile device.
Toto is a Singapore pool’s popular lottery game that features 6 winning numbers and a supplementary number to increase your prize options. It has a jackpot that can roll over for up to four times before being won by a lucky player. The prize can be worth up to $1 million.
Another lottery game that is run by Singapore Pools is the Hong Bao Draw, which has a top prize of $2.3 million. It is played twice a day and has a one-in-eleven chance of winning a prize.
A Singapore nurse, Zita Ng, spent about $15 on Hong Bao Draw and Singapore Sweep bets last year. She said she was not a regular customer but wanted to try her luck because of the Chinese New Year festivities.
But when she tried to claim her winnings, her friend ran off with the cash, according to a post in a closed Facebook group. She shared her woes to warn other punters against asking friends and family to make their bets for them.
