4D is one of the most popular games in Singapore because of the betting flexibility it provides. Playing 4D is relatively simple, but if you’ve never done it before, you may have some questions.
Take a breath and relax – we’re here to answer all of your pressing questions. From the methods of buying 4D tickets to the 4D sales closing time – the following guide is going to summarize the most important points for you.
What Is 4D Singapore?
Singapore 4D is one of the games in the portfolio of Singapore Pools. This is a game in which the player has to choose a four-digit number in the range from 0000 to 9999 for a chance to claim the top prize. 4D comes with flexible betting options, and the player is the one who will determine how much they’d like to spend on the acquisition of a Singapore 4D ticket.
Singapore 4D is also quite popular because of the odds of winning a prize.
Getting the four-digit number correct in the exact order comes with a statistical probability of 1 in 10,000. The same odds apply to the second and the third prize tiers.
Singapore Pools is highly committed to offering players flexibility. Thus, several methods can be employed to acquire 4D tickets.
How to Buy 4D Tickets: A Quick Overview
To place 4D bets, you can utilize several methods – a standard purchase at an authorized Singapore Pools retail venue, a purchase by phone or online shopping.
If you opt for the standard ticket acquisition at a retail venue, a 4D closing time will apply. The 4D sales closing time is at 6 p.m. on the days when drawings are taking place. The days on which 4D drawings take place are Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
Those who choose to buy tickets online can acquire those at any time apart from the period from 6 to 6:10 p.m. on days when drawings are taking place. This short period is needed to enable players to begin buying tickets for the next drawing rather than the one taking place at the time being.
Lottery bets for all of the Singapore Pools games can be placed by phone from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. – these are the working hours of the Singapore Pools operators.
Working hours may vary from one retail venue to another. Please check the local one to make sure you’ll get there in time to buy your 4D ticket.
Standard Ticket Purchases at Retail Venues
Let’s first take a look at the standard, non-technological option for buying a 4D ticket.
When visiting the respective venue, take a ticket form and mark whether you want to place your number or you’re looking forward to a quick pick option.
You will also have to mark on the playslip whether the bet is going to be placed solely in the future draw or six consecutive drawings.
You can place a standard bet, a 4D roll, a system entry or an iBet. If you don’t understand the differences between these betting options, please take a look at our Singapore Pools 4D review or take a look at the official Singapore Pools website.
The minimum 4D price for a bet is one dollar. It’s up to the player to figure out if they’d like to bet more.
When you’re done, you’ll need to submit your ticket and payment. You’ll receive an official receipt that features your digits, the type of bet and the number of drawings you’ve decided to bet on. This payslip is the one you’ll have to present alongside a valid ID in the case of winning a prize.
How to Buy a 4D Ticket Online
Singapore Pools also makes it relatively simple to buy a 4D ticket online.
For the purpose, you will need to visit the company’s ticket sale website at Online.SingaporePools.com.
Choose 4D from the vertical menu. You will next have to log in and enter your credentials. To create a registration for the portal, you will need to be a citizen of Singapore, or you’ll have to enter your FIN (for foreigners).
After you register, you’ll be allowed to make your 4D selection and place a bet.
Choose bet type and the number of drawings you’d like it to apply to. Enter the set of numbers you’d want to play and whether you’re opting for a big or a small bet. There is also a possibility for letting the software generate a random numbers ticket for you.
Each time you enter the online platform, you can fill out up to 10 separate 4D boards.
When done, place the bet. To complete the process, you will need to deposit money in your account. There are a few options. The most popular money deposit methods include eNETS, a top-up card purchase, a phone deposit, via a bank transfer or a cash or NETS deposit.
In the event of winning a 4D prize, the respective sum will be credited to your online account. You can cash it out by submitting a request either online or by phone. Visit a Singapore Pools branch, fill out the withdrawal form and you’ll get your cash. Alternative withdrawal options include via a bank transfer. This option is available from Monday to Friday.
At the time being, the Singapore Pools online portal does not support deposits or withdrawals made from a credit or debit card.
Buy a 4D Ticket by Phone
A final option that Singapore Pools has enabled is the buying of a 4D ticket by phone.
The lottery betting line is available at 6212-0039.
Via the phone line, you can place a standard, a 4D roll or a system bet.
When calling, you can submit up to 12 bets per call. The lottery number selection that you have in mind will be entered via the keypad of your phone. You will receive operator instructions when you call, guiding you through the steps of the process.
To place a bet by phone, you will need to have a registration on the Singapore Pools online betting website.
When you make a phone bet, information about your 4D submission will become available in your online profile. You can also check out the history of your bets by calling 6786-6688.
A final thing to keep in mind is that Singapore Pools also has a convenient mobile app. Through the app, you can access online betting services and the history of your profile. Information about the latest results can also be accessed via the app.
To download the app and use it to place your 4D bet, you will need to visit the App Store (it is solely available for iPhone users at the time being).
