ToTo Beginner Guide

How to play ToTo (Information from Singapore Pools)
To play Toto, choose at least six numbers from 1 to 49 and match them against the winning numbers drawn. You can also let the computer pick the numbers for you. Just ask for QuickPick.

Six numbers plus one additional number will be drawn every Monday and Thursday. If your numbers match at least three numbers and the additional number drawn, you win a prize!
Toto sales start a week before the draw and close at 6pm on draw day. You can choose to place bets for a single draw or two consecutive draws.

Type of Bets Available
You can place Ordinary Entry Bets or System Entry Bets in Toto.

Ordinary Entry
Refers to a selection of 6 numbers from 1 to 49.

System Entry
Refers to a selection of 7 to 12 numbers from 1 to 49.
E.g, a System 7 entry is a selection of 7 numbers; a System 12 entry is a selection of 12 numbers.

System Roll
This requires you to pick only 5 numbers from 1 to 49. The 6th number covers the remaining 40 numbers that have not been picked. In other words, you have placed 40 ordinary bets.

Cost of Betting
The minimum bet amount is $1.00 (inclusive of GST).
