Just in case you’re unable to make it for the collection, you can ask a family or friend to help you out with that. Just remember to print and complete this authorization form before they make their way to the collection points.

3. Other options – No. 1

If you think $228 is too much to spend on TOTO, then you might want to consider the $10 pack.
Here’s what the $10 pack entitles you to:
  • 1 TOTO ticket X 1 board of Quick Pick System 7 (worth $7)
  • 1 Singapore Sweep ticket for Draw 03/2018 (worth $3)

Still got chance lah hor.

4. Other options – No. 2

Or you think $10 is too little, then get the $20 pack, which includes:

  • 1 TOTO ticket X 2 boards of Quick Pick System 7 (worth $14)
  • 1 TOTO ticket X 3 boards of Quick Pick Ordinary (worth $3)
  • 1 Singapore Sweep ticket for Draw 03/2018 (worth $3)

Both $10 and $20 pack will be made available from Monday, 26 February, 6.10 p.m. to Friday, 2 March, 9:00 p.m.

5.  Prize pot was higher in 2016

Did you know that the Hong Bao Draw was much higher in 2016? Instead of $12 million, it was a whopping amount of $13.9 million.

2017’s prize pot is the same as this year’s. Nothing to celebrate but hey, it’s still money we’re talking about. Better than the $10 million in 2014.
