Today, the gaming industry in Singapore is undergoing a transformation. With the introduction of a legal betting avenue, Singapore Pools, the Lottery Singapore will need a robust central system to handle a large number of transactions per day. The Aurora lottery system from IGT provides reliability and support for significant numbers of daily transactions. The Aurora Navigator provides a central location for managing all lottery applications, while the Aurora Data Connector provides plug-and-play data integration. In addition, Aurora Anywhere is a secure gateway for external applications to connect to the core lottery system, enabling expanded gaming options for Singapore Pools.
As part of its lottery scheme, players choose six numbers between one and 49. The price of a lottery ticket is $1, and more expensive numbers fetch a higher price. The lottery has different price ranges for each number, with the lowest being $1. The winning lottery ticket price increases as the number of numbers matches the drawn numbers. The jackpot prize is awarded to the player whose six numbers match all the drawn numbers. Toto is the second most popular betting game, with players selecting seven numbers from 1 to 49. The draw takes place every Monday to Friday at 6:30PM, and the cascade draws take place at 9:30pm.
Singapore Pools owns the Toto game. This is the only lottery in Singapore that is legal. It was first launched in 1968. It has since received a variety of modifications, including snowballing and top price increases. Its computerized version was first offered online on May 19, 1986. Toto originally came in a 5/49 format, which was later changed to 6/42, 6/45, and finally in 2016. It is now available online.
