Launched in 1968, the TOTO game is the first lottery game in the history of Singapore Pools.
The name 'TOTO' is derived from a combination of 'Totalisator' and 'Lotto'.
The game has evolved over the years. The snowballing feature was introduced in 1981, allowing prize amounts to grow if there were no winners. The System Entry option was introduced later in the same year.
In June 1988, the format of the game was updated from a '5-out-of-49' to a '6-out-of-42' format. The top prize was raised to an assured sum of $300,000 then. The game was again tweaked in 1997 to a '6-out-of-45' format with a Jackpot prize guaranteed at $500,000.
In October 2014, TOTO was updated to its current format. Today, six Winning Numbers and one Additional Number are drawn from 49 numbers each Monday and Thursday. The Jackpot sum begins from $1,000,000.
The odds of winning the TOTO Jackpot - one in almost 14 million.
