What is the Toto Jackpot?

The Toto jackpot is a lottery game played in Singapore. If you are lucky enough to get three of your lucky numbers correct, you will win a prize. Toto was first played in 1968 using a five out of 49 format. In 1988, the top prize was guaranteed at S$300,000 for a single winning ticket. In 1997, the rules were changed to a six out of 45 format. The top prize was increased to S$500,000. Since October 2014, the format has remained the same. The lottery draws six winning numbers from a pool of 49, plus one additional number.

The prize money for the Toto jackpot does not snowball beyond the fourth draw. When the jackpot has accumulated for three consecutive draws without a winner, the prize money is distributed amongst the winning Toto entries. The cascading draw will occur when there are three consecutive draws without a winner in Group 1.

The winning Toto ticket was sold at FairPrice in Tampines Mall, and at Cheng Tai Boon Beng, an authorised retailer in Orchard Plaza. The next Toto jackpot will be drawn on 13 January 2019.
