The lottery game in Singapore is run by Singapore Pools under government authorization that offers several general sports betting as well as lottery games to the public. TOTO was the very first lottery game that has been created back in 1968 and is still going strong today, being as popular as ever. It was ranked the second most popular type of gambling after 4D. The TOTO is a traditional draw-style, pick six lotto game offered by the Singapore Pools. The jackpot prize for the TOTO game starts at S$ 1 million for every draw and if the first prize is not won by anyone, the amount is a rollover and increase in size each time until a lucky winner wins the jackpot. The increase in the jackpot amount can occur for a maximum of 4 times after which the prize amount eventually cascade down to the next winning prize level and are shared amongst all the winners in that prize category. The prize amount on levels 2, 3 and 4 also rollovers in case if there is no winner and these prizes keep rising until a winner is found and at these levels, there is no limit to the amount of the rollover draws.
The people participating in the TOTO game need to pick at least six numbers from 1 to 49. The drawn winning numbers are six numbers along with an additional number and if three or more winning number on a ticket matches with the seven drawn numbers, the buyer of the ticket qualifies for a cash prize. With the increase numbers matched, the prize money also escalates and the maximum allowed matching number is six. If six numbers on the TOTO ticket matches with the drawn six numbers, then the jackpot prize is won. There are 4 different ways to place a bet for the TOTO that include QuickPick, Ordinary Bet, System Bet and System Roll. The TOTO ticket can be purchased from any of the 300 Singapore outlets and the draws are conducted every Monday and Thursday at 6.30pm.
