The Singapore Lottery is the oldest lottery game in the world. It has been in operation since 1968 and is operated by a state-owned gambling company called Singapore Pools.
Tickets for the Singapore Lottery are available at authorized lottery stores and retail outlets. You can also purchase tickets online. Buying multiple tickets increases your chances of winning.
To win, players select six numbers between one and 49. If all six numbers match the drawn numbers, they are awarded the jackpot prize. Alternatively, if a player wins by matching three or four numbers, they are awarded the second prize.
If no one is awarded the jackpot prize for four draws, the jackpot rolls down. Unclaimed prizes are distributed to charitable organizations. Failure to claim the prize within 90 days will incur fines.
The official Singapore lottery website provides information about the games, rules and tips on how to win. You can subscribe to e-mail alerts and check results in real time.
Purchasing tickets is easy. You can use a credit card, PayPal, or an e-wallet service. Depending on the number of numbers chosen, the price of the ticket rises.
The official website is mobile-friendly. This means you can access the lottery on your tablet or smartphone. Some of the features of the site include a chat window, a calculator, and a calendar of daily draws.
Players can also check the results of past draws. Results are usually announced online, but local newspapers also announce them.
