In an ideal world, broccoli would taste like fried chicken, chocolate would cure all diseases, and it’d be possible to wake up one day with millions of dollars in your bank account.
Unfortunately, all these fantasies are too far beyond reality’s reach.
Or are they?
If you’ve always dreamt of having millions fall from the sky, you’ve likely visited one or two Singapore Pools outlets in your time.
But which one should you head to during the Lunar New Year?
Well, here are 10 Singapore Pools outlets that Lady Luck has repeatedly smiled upon over the years.
Starting with number 10 on the list, we have a 7-11 outlet at Eunos.
Didn’t expect the place where you withdraw cash in emergency situations and purchase expensive alcohol to be huat? Well, the numbers don’t lie.
According to Tropika Club Magazine, this 7-11 outlet in Eunos has had 7 Jackpot winners and 13 Group 2 winners.
Not too shabby, right?
Address: Blk.1A Eunos Cres, #01-2469/2471, Singapore 401001
Next up on the list is a ‘Pools outlet located in IMM.
Whether you’re there to have a hotpot meal at Haidiao or to shop for clothes, you might want to head down to the Singapore Pools outlet there to place your bets.
Because this outlet has had 7 Jackpot winners and 15 Group 2 winners.
So, if you’re a westie looking for a winning ticket, this might be the outlet for you.
Address: 2 Jurong East Street 21, #02 – 63, Singapore 609601
Yes, believe it or not, we have another 7-11 outlet on the list, but this one needs no introduction.
To say Yishun doesn’t exactly have the best reputation is a bit of an understatement, what with all the cat and human murders that have taken place there.
But there is a small beam of light shining in all that darkness, and it comes from a 7-11 outlet.
You’ll often see long queues at this Singapore Pools outlet because it’s had 34 Toto winners in total, with 7 Jackpot winners and a whopping 27 Group 2 winners.
The queues are so long some have speculated that the store has started selling iPhones or bubble tea, but no, they’re all trying to strike it rich.
Sadly, Northerners will have to find another outlet to try their luck as the 7-11 outlet will soon close down permanently to make way for the Chong Pang Integrated Hub.
So, if you’re thinking of placing your bets there, do it soon.
Address: Yishun Ave 5, #01-137 Block 102, Singapore 760102
Mee Lee Cheong
Coming in at number 7 on this list is Mee Lee Cheong, a Singapore Pools authorised retailer.
While there are several huat outlets in the East, this one is visited by Lady Luck on a regular basis.
They once shifted locations back in 2016, but they clearly brought their luck with them.
This ‘Pools outlet has had 7 Jackpot winners and 28 Group 2 winners.
Address: 139 Tampines Street 11, Singapore 521139
People’s Park Centre
There’s a reason why the Singapore Pools outlet in People’s Park Centre is always packed with humans, and it’s not just because it’s located in the Central Business District.
While there are around 170 retail shops in the mall, many patrons head to People’s Park hoping to get rich quick because the pools outlet has had 7 Jackpot winners and 30 Group 2 winners.
And if you believe in that sort of thing, palm readings and fortune telling is also available in the area, so you can get some counsel before purchasing your tickets!

Ng Teo Guan
Number 5 on the list is Ng Teo Guan, another authorised retailer of Singapore Pools.
Situated next to a confectionary, this outlet often has long, snaking queues, especially during the Chinese New Year (CNY) period.
It’s had 7 Jackpot winners and 44 Group 2 winners, so it certainly isn’t lacking in the huat department.
Address: 301 Ubi Ave 1, #01-251, Singapore 400301
Tan Wee Fong Trading
Tan Wee Fong Trading holds a special place in punter’s hearts, because, someone reportedly wins the top TOTO prize at the outlet every year.
One lucky gambler who played using Quick Pick in 2017 walked away with the biggest Group 1 prize, which was $4.5 million.
That’s why Singaporeans turn up at the outlet every weekend without fail, hoping to be the winner for that year.
This outlet has had 8 Jackpot winners and 35 Group 2 winners.
Address: 24 Bendemeer Rd, #01-529, Singapore 330024
NTUC Tampines Mall
What better place to get your hands on a winning ticket than where you buy your 65 weekly rolls of toilet paper?
While many NTUC outlets across the country have Singapore Pools outlets, only one has made it on this list, and it happens to be in Tampines Mall.
It’s a rather popular spot for punters, however, so be prepared for long queues during the CNY period.
This outlet has had 9 Jackpot winners and 20 Group 2 winners.
Address: 4 Tampines Central 5, #B1-12, Singapore 529510
It sounds like a food caterer, but the only thing patrons at Delisia Agency are hungry for is a winning ticket.
And many of them seem to come away with satisfied bank accounts.
Located in Fu Lu Shou Complex, this outlet has seen long queues since the 1990s, when discmans were still the height of technology.
Delisia has had 10 Jackpot winners and a staggering 50 Group 2 winners.
Even if you weren’t planning to come here, you’re probably already on your way now.
Address: 149 Rochor Rd, Fu Lu Shou Complex, Singapore 188425
Tong Aik Huat
We’ve finally reached the top of the list, the pinnacle of huat-ness, the haven for gamblers:
Tong Aik Huat.
Winners at this outlet have come away with some of the largest jackpots in the country’s history.
In 2014, a person walked away with $6,410,229 after winning the top prize with a System 7 ticket.
And just two years later, one lucky winner went home with S$7,884,082 after buying a Quick Pick System 8 TOTO ticket.
This retailer has had 10 Jackpot winners and 64 Group 2 winners.
So if you’re looking to strike it big during CNY, Tong Aik Huat may be your best bet.
Now, while many of us like to attribute such occurrences to luck, we should also note that some outlets get more winners because more people flock there; it’s a never-ending cycle.
In any case, do gamble responsibly and, more importantly, within your means.
The promise of riches is seductive, but that doesn’t mean we should throw our life savings away.
Have fun with your bets, but do exercise a little prudence and shrewdness.
With that said, if you’re planning on visiting one of the outlets above, here’s hoping that you have a particularly huat Chinese New Year!
