  • What is a TOTO Cascade Draw?

    A cascade draw takes place after three consecutive draws without a Group 1 Prize winner.

    The Jackpot does not snowball beyond the fourth consecutive draw. If there is no Group 1 Prize winner at the end of four consecutive draws, the final jackpot amount (38% of the fourth draw's prize pool plus snowballed amount from the three preceding draws) cascades, i.e. it will be paid to the next prize group with winner(s) and shared equally.

    The following table shows how the final Jackpot amount is passed down if there is no Group 1 Prize winner.

  • What is TOTO Subscription?

    Maximum stake for each draw is $50.

  • What if I do not have enough funds or have reached my Daily Expenditure Limit for my TOTO Subscription bet?

The next bet placement attempt will be made on the subsequent draws within the Subscription, if any.

  • How does iTOTO work?

    Each TOTO bet entered into a TOTO draw must consist of a single whole bet. Otherwise, Singapore Pools will not be able to pay out the TOTO prize for that draw in its entirety, and the jackpot and cascading rules would be affected.

    iTOTO involves splitting a System Entry ticket into a number of units, and each of these units can be sold individually, the sum of those units making up a single whole bet of one System Entry ticket. The prizes won, if any, will commensurate with the number of unit bet(s) bought by the customer, as stipulated in Rules for the TOTO Game.

  • What does Singapore Pools do with the remaining iTOTO units?

    Singapore Pools is responsible for the stake contributions in respect of any remaining iTOTO units. If the remaining iTOTO units of a System Entry ticket are part of a winning bet, the prize money won by these units will be channelled by Singapore Pools to good causes through the Tote Board.

  • Why is there no rollover of prizes for the remaining winning iTOTO units?

    There is no rollover process for prizes for the remaining winning iTOTO units because each iTOTO bet must consist of a single whole bet of one System Entry ticket. Any remaining units will be dealt with as described above. Each TOTO bet is a pari-mutuel game and TOTO pari-mutuel prizes, if won, must be paid in their entirety for that draw. Partial rollovers are not allowed, so all prizes won must be accounted for in the same draw. However, the existing rules for snowballing and cascading of unwon group or Jackpot prizes remain unchanged.

  • Are there many remaining units of iTOTO bets?

    All units of an existing iTOTO bet must be sold before a new iTOTO bet is generated upon demand. This minimises the number of remaining units to only one iTOTO bet. As such, the scenario where there are many remaining units of iTOTO bets will not happen.

  • When can I buy Singapore Sweep tickets?

    Sale of tickets for each Singapore Sweep draw begin after the previous draw takes place on the first Wednesday of each month.
