TOTO is a popular form of gambling in Singapore. In February 2005, a survey conducted by the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS) indicated that 58% of the Singapore residents surveyed had participated in at least one form of gambling activity over the past year. Among those surveyed, TOTO rated the second most popular type of gambling activity, after 4-Digits. The average monthly median betting amount of those surveyed who bought TOTO was placed at S$48.
TOTO can be purchased from any of the 300 Singapore Pools outlets across Singapore. Draws are conducted every Monday and Thursday at 1830h or 6:30pm (SG/HK time). The â€œliveâ€ TOTO draw can be viewed at the Singapore Pools Main Branch at 210 Middle Road. The profits from TOTO go to the Singapore Totaliser Board (the owner of Singapore Pools) which uses the money for charity and other worthy causes.
SINGAPORE POOLS LOTTO RESULTS, TOTO Method of Play
A buyer picks at least six numbers, each on a basis of 1 to 49. The winning numbers drawn include six numbers plus an additional number. Three or more winning numbers on a ticket matching the seven numbers drawn qualifies the buyer for a cash prize. The prize money escalates with the increase in numbers matched.
The maximum allowed matching numbers is six. Thus, if six numbers on the TOTO ticket matches the six numbers drawn, the jackpot (Group 1) prize is won.
SINGAPORE POOLS LOTTO, 4D
4-Digits (abbreviation: 4-D) is a lottery in Singapore and Malaysia. Individuals play by choosing any number from 0000 to 9999. Then, twenty-three winning numbers are drawn each time. If one of the numbers matches the one that the player has bought, a prize is won. A draw is conducted to select these winning numbers. 4-Digits is a fixed-odds game.
Magnum 4D is the 1st legalized 4D Operator licensed by the Malaysian Government to operate 4D. Soon thereafter, other lottery operators followed suit, as this is a very popular game in Malaysia and Singapore.
Singapore Pools is the sole provider of gambling games in Singapore. 4-D and lottery 6/45 are two of the most popular. A similar 4-D game with its prize structure fully revealed can be found in Taiwan.
4-Digits is somewhat similar to "Pick 4" in the United States and Canada.
SINGAPORE POOLS LOTTO, SWEEP
184.108.40.206 - 220.127.116.11 | 18.104.22.168 | 22.214.171.124 Sweepstakes are a type of contest where a prize or prizes may be awarded to a winner or winners. Sweepstakes began as a form of lottery that were tied to products sold. In response, the FCC and FTC refined U.S. broadcasting laws (creating the anti-lottery laws). Under these laws sweepstakes became strictly "No Purchase Necessary to Enter or Win", especially since many sweepstakes companies skirted the law by stating only "No Purchase Necessary to Enter", removing the consideration (one of the three legally required elements of gambling) to stop abuse of sweepstakes. Today, sweepstakes in the USA are used as marketing promotions to reward existing consumers, and to draw attention to a product. By definition, the winner is determined by luck rather than skill. echo date('m/d/Y h:i:s a', time()); ?>
