Lottery Singapore is a monopoly owned by the state and authorised to conduct sports betting, horse races, and lottery activities. It offers four main games including 4D, Toto, and Singapore Sweep.
A woman in Singapore reportedly found out the hard way that asking someone to make your lottery bets on your behalf can be a bad idea, according to a post shared in a closed Facebook group on January 16. The woman, who makes S$2,000 or so a month and is from a modest background, claimed her prize winnings were denied by the friend she asked to buy her the ticket.
Her experience was shared as a cautionary tale in Xin Jia Po Gong Zuo Jobs in Singapore SG on January 16, with a lengthy post about the incident in Chinese. The woman wrote that she had gotten the friend to buy her 4D tickets but then found out that she was no longer the winner.
IRAS imposes gambling duty on betting operators and lottery promoters in Singapore, which they must pay by the 15th day of the month following the end of the month during which these activities are conducted. If you do not file your Statement of Gambling Activities and Payments to IRAS by the due date, you face enforcement action from IRAS.
You may also face a composition amount if your past compliance records indicate that the promoter has not paid its gambling duties or that you have been involved in a serious offence. You must pay the composition amount and file your Statement by the due date to avoid prosecution.
