As of the date of this article, there have been four winners of the S$2.917 million Toto jackpot. The amount of each prize varies depending on the number of numbers that were matched. In every Toto draw, 54% of the sales proceeds are added to the prize pool, which is used to distribute the prize money.
In order to win the jackpot, you must match all six numbers. There are two ways to enter the lottery: system entry and quick pick. System entry has better odds but requires more numbers. Tickets for the jackpot are sold for as much as S$900. For each ticket, you must select 6 numbers from 1 to 45.
There are many different betting systems available to choose from. You can call Singapore Pools or visit their online platform to place your bet. Depending on your needs, you can choose from many different ways to pick your numbers. The simplest bet is the Ordinary entry, which requires a minimum bet of S$1. You can buy as many ordinary entries as you like, but you should keep in mind that the more numbers you select, the more you can win.
The first Toto game was launched in Singapore in 1968, in a manual version that was sold at small stand-alone booths throughout the island. Since then, the game has evolved to include a snowballing mechanism that allows the top prize to rise from draw to draw. In 1986, it became a computerized lottery game and is now offered online.
