Lottery Singapore is a popular game that relies on luck to win a prize. The prizes vary from a few hundred dollars to millions of dollars. You can play the game at Singapore Pools outlets or online. However, the rules of the game may differ from one outlet to another. These differences are usually related to the price of tickets and whether you can make system bets.
While gambling remains prohibited in many countries, it is legal in Singapore. In fact, it is a major source of revenue for the country. According to the NTUC Fairprice’s latest figures, more than SGD9 billion (US$6.75 billion) was wagered on sports betting and lottery products last year. This is the highest figure reported by the statutory board in four years.
The NTUC Fairprice spokesman added: “Individuals should exercise personal responsibility, not bet beyond their means and avoid placing bets they cannot afford to lose.” He also encouraged families to look out for their loved ones and advise them not to bet excessively. Individuals can also seek help if they have issues with their gambling behaviour. The NTUC Fairprice spokesman said those who have concerns can call its helpline or use Webchat.
The NTUC Fairprice spokesman also warned against scams in the country. He urged people to be careful when buying lottery tickets and check their authenticity. Those who do not want to risk losing money should buy their tickets only at licensed retail outlets. In addition, he warned against sharing ticket numbers or other details with others.
