Singapore resumes online betting and wagering

Singapore Pools will resume online sports betting from Monday and online horse wagering from Wednesday, according to an announcement over the weekend. 

However, its physical branches, authorized retailers, livewire venues, and off-course betting centers will remain closed, as well as all forms of lottery draws including 4D, TOTO, and Singapore Sweep. 

The operator said that allowing it to resume its online operations will help to stem the growth of illegal gambling, which has seen rising cases during the coronavirus pandemic.
