With the toto jackpot reaching RM17 million, more people are trying their luck at buying the winning numbers. While most lottery players choose their favorite numbers, some also prefer calendar numbers such as birthdays and anniversaries. It’s recommended to play both calendar and high numbers to increase your chances of winning. This will also make sure that you get a good prize if your numbers hit.

You can purchase toto tickets at any Singapore Pools outlet, via their phone betting service or online. The ticket price is minimal at S$1. There are many different bet types to choose from. The most popular is the Quick Pick System 12 entry, which includes six numbers chosen from 1 to 49. You can also select iToto, which is an ordinary system 12 entry divided into 28 units. Each unit costs $33, (Normal system 12 bet amount / 28 units).

The prize category is divided into ‘Groups’, and the winning payouts vary depending on which number you select. If there are no winners on a particular draw between Groups 1 to 4, the prize money will snowball and accumulate into the next draw within that group.

The winner of the toto jackpot was a 70-year-old retiree from Negeri Sembilan. His preferred numbers were 9 and 31. He said he randomly chose a set of numbers before adding 9 and 31 to it. He then placed bets on the numbers in the Toto and Toto Lucky 6/58 draws on 16 and 19 April.
