Lottery Singapore is a Singapore-based lottery company that runs 4D, Toto and Singapore Sweep. The company also offers sports betting products. It is regulated by the Tote Board, a statutory body.
A 60-year-old woman was sentenced to jail for nine weeks on Wednesday after violating Covid-19 laws by leaving her home to eat, get vaccinated and collect her lottery winnings while under a quarantine order last year. The woman, Ang Siew Wah, pleaded guilty to one count of breaching the Infectious Diseases Act by exposing others to the risk of infection.
The woman had won S$200,000 in the 4D draw last year. She was so excited about her win that she had a dinner party for all her colleagues, and promised to split her prize money with them.
She had never stumbled across such a massive windfall before, the post said. However, she still was unable to control her spending habits.
While a large amount of money can make many problems go away, it also tends to introduce new ones. As a result, it’s important to take professional financial advice and be careful when spending your lottery winnings.
