Recent increase in numbers offers better chances of winning a jackpot for tot players.
Toto lottery in Singapore was originally a 6/45 lottery. It has recently been changed to a 6/49 lottery in order to be able to offer higher jackpots to players. On the toto site, players choose a total of six numbers ranging from 1 to 49. Each board costs $1 and there is a minimum bet requirement of $1.
The drawings are held weekly on Monday and Thursday. Six numbers are drawn along with one additional number that allows increased options for prizes.
The lottery numbers are drawn at random. However, numbers that are drawn randomly do form patterns that are able to be tracked. When playing toto, you want to play the probabilities. For example, if you consistently play a pattern that only happens five percent of the time, then you can expect to lose 95% of the time. Needless to say, those are not very good odds and not a route that you want to take.
When playing Singapore Toto, you should try to have a god mix of even and odd numbers. It is very rare for all even or all odd numbers to be drawn. One of the best mixes is to have either two odd and four even, two even and four odd, or three odd and three even. It is known that one of the patterns will happen in 83% of the drawings.
Typically, winning numbers are spread all over the whole number field. If that number field is split in half, then there would be a low half and a high half. The numbers one through twenty-four would be considered the low half and the numbers twenty-five through forty-nine would be known as the high half. It is very rare for all high or all low numbers to be drawn.
With the Singapore toto, the odds of winning the top jackpot prize are 1 in 13,983,816. The guaranteed minimum jackpot prize is one million dollars. This jackpot makes up 38% of the prize pool. If a player matches 3 numbers, they will win $10. The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 54. These odds are much better than some of the other lottery options tend to be.
The recent changes in the numbers in order to increase the jackpot payout amounts is certainly something that has encouraged players to continue chancing their luck and trying to win the lucky jackpot!
