How to Play the Toto Lottery

The Toto lottery is a legalised form of gambling in Singapore. Known by different names overseas, this lottery is run by Singapore Pools, the only licensed lottery operator in the country. In April 2015, it was the second most popular form of gambling in the country. But despite the perks of winning, not everyone can afford to play.

The Toto lottery was first offered in Singapore in the early 1960s. In 1981, it introduced the snowball effect to its game, which divided the jackpot prize among the lower tiers if no one won the jackpot. The game also adopted a six/42 matrix and added additional games. In 2000, Toto introduced the HongBao Draw, while the Toto Millenium Draw debuted in 1999.

The Toto jackpot is the biggest prize in the game, and winning this jackpot requires matching all six numbers drawn. To win the jackpot, a player must match all six numbers on their Toto ticket with those drawn by the computer. To play the lottery, you can also purchase a system roll, which requires you to choose five numbers from one to 49. A system roll has a higher chance of winning, but you must remember that the odds of winning depend on the number of winning numbers chosen.

You can purchase a subscription to the Toto lottery and play several drawings at the same time. Subscriptions can be purchased over the phone or online. Each subscription allows you to play in up to three drawings at a time. In addition, the subscription is valid for 10 consecutive drawings and the maximum stake per drawing is $50.
