SINGAPORE — Singapore Pools will conduct all its live lottery draws for 4D, Toto and Singapore Sweep behind closed doors until further notice, and will suspend transmission of these draws at its branches.

In a media release on Wednesday (25 March), it added that all its Livewire venues for live sports betting as well as its off-course betting centres for horse racing will be closed from Thursday until further notice.

The Livewire venues are located at Marina Bay Sands, Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore Pools Building and Singapore Turf Club, while there are seven off-course betting centres for horse racing across the island.

Singapore Pools said these measures come after the Ministry of Health announced tighter measures to minimise further spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus on Tuesday, and are implemented to safeguard the health and well-being of its staff and customers.

Additional measures will be deployed at outlets to manage any queues and to prevent overcrowding. Singapore Pools account holders can continue to place their bets online and via telephone.
