    Its a tradition they dont call it "1st prize" but call it "Group 1".
    Not exactly correct. ... depends on the system you buy.... If for eg you buy a System 9 and you get 5 numbers... you will kenna a grp 3 prize and a grp 5 prize.

    For that matter... if you kenna 1 number only you won't kenna the Grp 6 prize right?

    Group 1 means 1st prize, meaning the jackpot. (u hit all 6 numbers)
    Group 2 means 2nd prize, (u hit 5 numbers plus the add-on number)
    Group 3 means u hit any 5 numbers.
    Group 4 means u hit any 4 numbers plus the add-on number
    Group 5 means u hit any 4 numbers.

    So if u buy System 9, u are betting on 9 numbers, its a combination of many many different series of 6 numbers, if u hit 5 numbers (lucky), then some series will win Group 3, and some series will win Group 5.

    I dont bet/gamble nowadays. (retired)

    I dont buy Toto because the chance of winning is very small, in fact it is easier to win in casino than Toto.
    But then Casino is additive, ppl get addited and borrow money and lose their whole life there, u need to have more money than the Casion owner in order to win them, it is better to invest in stocks market.
    But then stock market in Singapore is so unfavourable to small investors, it is not wise to buy, overseas market incur additional risk of currency trading so not wise as well.
    Hence I believe in hard work and earn a honest living and live happily.

    Statistically, it has been found that 70% of those who won big lottery prizes come back to their exact financial position one year later. Read that from somewhere so dun know how true that is.

    You know folks, I really wish there's an online payment system or membership from Singapore Pools. Can setup account for consecutive buying and such. Its such a hassle to lineup and buy.

    Should be Group 6. I think the prize money is very low ($10??). He got to queue up again to collect the prize money, another 2 or 3 hours
