How to Play the Toto Lottery

The Toto lottery has been in play since the 1940s, and you can play it online or at a retail store. It’s a great way to increase your chances of winning large sums of money for a relatively low price. To play Toto, you must choose six numbers from 1 to 49, matching all six with the winning numbers to win. Ordinary entries cost just $1, but you can purchase a System Entry ticket and select up to twelve numbers for a much higher chance of winning.

Whether you play the Toto for the fun of it, or to maximize your chances of winning, there is one thing you can be sure of: the odds are against you. While the jackpots in the previous draw were high, there was a significant difference between winners and losers. In the case of Group 1 prize, the chances of winning the jackpot are much higher in the latter group. The prize pool in the Group 1 draw is higher than the other three, and the jackpot in this group can be up to S$10 million.

Starting in 1968, the TOTO is available in a manual form. Tickets were sold at small stand-alone booths across Singapore. The top prize increases from draw to draw, allowing the lucky winners to accumulate more prizes over time. The minimum cost for a TOTO ticket is $1, inclusive of GST. TOTO draws are held on Mondays and Thursdays at 6.30pm and 9.30pm. You must shade your chosen number to win. The winning number is displayed on the screen; you must shade it in order to be declared a winner.
