Lottery Singapore is regulated by the government and operated by a company known as Singapore Pools. Its main lottery games include 4-Digits, Toto and Singapore Sweep. It also offers sports betting on football and motor racing events. The prizes for these games range from a few hundred dollars to millions of dollars. The company takes responsible gambling seriously and is certified by several national and international gambling authorities.
The company’s website also displays its responsible gaming guidelines. In addition, it tracks players’ IP addresses to block them from entering its site. In addition, the company encourages its customers to use the ScamShield app to prevent them from falling victim to online scams.
While many countries tax their lottery winnings, Singapore does not. This is because the country does not consider them as income. This means that even if you win the big jackpot in TOTO, you will not have to pay any taxes.
In addition to a jackpot prize, TOTO has six additional tiers of prize money. The second tier is awarded to players who correctly guess five of the six numbers plus the supplementary number. This tier accounts for eight percent of the total prize pool.
To play TOTO, you must be a resident of Singapore. You can claim your winnings by visiting a Singapore Pools outlet. You can also call the hotline or check past results on its official website. If you are unable to visit the Singapore Pools outlets, you can still file your gambling duty statement to IRAS by the deadline. However, you may be penalized if you fail to file the statement on time.
