The Toto lottery is a legalised form of gambling in Singapore. It is known by different names in other countries. It is operated by Singapore Pools, the only legal lottery operator in the country. As of April 2015, it was the second most popular gambling activity in Singapore. This is due to its high payout rates and low house edge.
To win the jackpot, you must match all six numbers on the Toto draw. The more numbers you match, the higher the chance of winning. You can buy tickets by phone or online. Each ticket costs S$900, but you have more chances to win if you purchase a system roll. System roll tickets require five numbers and the sixth number is considered a rolling ball representing all the other numbers in the number pool.
Toto has been running in Singapore since the early 1960s. In 1981, it added the snowball effect, wherein the top prize is shared among lower tiers if no jackpot winner is selected. In 1988, it shifted to a six/42 matrix. A six/45 matrix was later added in 1997. In 2006, it was made available online.
