The New Singapore Sweep has been revamped to offer customers' bigger top prizes, more prizes and more chances of winning a prize.
The 1st prize will be increased from $2 million to $2.2 million, the second prize from $400,000 to $500,000 and the third prize from $200,000 to $250,000. In addition, there will new prize categories such as 3D prize and Super Sweep Prize.
There will be 48,000 3D prizes to be won. All players have to do is match the last 3 digits to 15 3-digit numbers drawn and they would win $30 each. In the Super Sweep prize, the player has to match the 7 digits plus the alphabet, A-E to win $300,000. If the number matches 7 digits of the drawn Super Sweep number, but not the alphabet, the player wins $50,000. The super sweep prize can be snowballed to up to 5 consecutive draws. If the Super Sweep prize is not won by the 5th draw, the 5 Digit Cascade Prize Category, worth $1,000,000 will be distributed to 100 winners whose first 5 number on their ticket match the first 5 digits drawn in the 6th draw.
In all, the number of prizes has increase from 27,808 to 48,134. The total prize amount has gone up from $4.8 to $5 million and the odds of winning a prize have improved from 1 in 108 to 1 in 67.
With all these changes, the price of the revamped New Singapore Sweep will remain at $3 per ticket. The number of tickets printed will increase from 3 to 3.2million. The New Singapore Sweep will also be timed as a monthly draw rather than a moving 4 weeks draw.
These changes were made in response to our customers' feedback and requests. As a pro-active gaming operator we strive to be mindful and react to the wants and needs to today's customers lest they be tempted to bet with private operators.
We would like to thank customers for their support and remind them to always play with care.
