Singapore Lottery is one of the most popular forms of gambling in Singapore. In this game, players must pick six numbers from the range of 1 to 49. A match of six numbers will win the jackpot prize, while a match of three numbers will earn a second or third prize. The minimum bet amount is $1.
To play the Singapore lottery, you can buy a ticket from any authorized merchant or through the online site. You can also play from a mobile phone or a tablet. There are two draws every week. They take place on Thursday and Friday at 6.30PM and on Monday and Wednesday at 9:30PM.
The jackpot prize starts at SGD$1 million. It will increase each week until the winning player claims it. Another reward is the cascade draw, wherein a number is drawn every 9:30PM and a prize is awarded to a player who matches a number.
In addition to the main draw, there are 10 special prizes and 10 consolation prizes. Each draw has its own target date. Normally, the draw takes place at 7PM.
Singapore Pools, the lottery promoter, is responsible for running the game. This is a government-owned company. As such, it has to have a sophisticated central system.
IGT has signed a six-year deal with Singapore Pools to provide lottery services via the Aurora system. The new system will allow the company to handle all lottery applications in a single place.
