The Singapore Prize is a lottery-like game offering a premium prize of at least $200,000 with all net proceeds going toward building the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay. Since its inaugural offering in 1998, prize amounts have steadily increased, reaching at least $2 million as its premium prize now. Secondary prizes including cars and cash are also included as secondary incentives to play both online and at retail locations; there’s an 1/11 chance of winning the Singapore Prize.
An individual must be aged eighteen or over to win the premium prize and at least twenty-one to qualify for secondary prizes. Games are overseen by the Gaming Control Authority of Singapore and operated by Singapore Pools; two types of game exist – scratchcards and electronic instant-win games sold at Singapore Pools retail outlets while instant-win games may be accessed on computers or mobile devices.
Prize money is divided among several categories and winners can opt to collect their winnings as either a lump sum payment or installments over time, subject to terms and conditions of each game; prize values cannot be guaranteed and tax may also apply accordingly.
Lotteries are an extremely popular form of gambling worldwide. While lottery can be dangerous, there are ways to minimize your risk by playing wisely and safely. You can find ample advice online on how to do just this; or ask friends and read up on official rules before starting to gamble.
