Last month Singapore Pools launched a new mobile app that now allows punters to mark out 4-D and Toto bets on e-betting slips and track their expenses. This app not only is useful for players to promote responsible gambling by tracking the expense of the player but also is environment friendly as it will reduce the use of paper betting slips.
This app works best for Android mobile phones as well as iOS smartphones and is available free to download from the app stores. A unique quick response (QR) code will be generated after an e-betting slip is marked out. Punters can scan the code at Singapore Pools outlets for a physical betting ticket after making payment.
Features of E-betting slip app
- With this app you can formulate your 4D and TOTO bet slip on the phone
- Also check official lottery results
- Now track your lottery betting expenses
- Is environment friendly because if one out of ten who use paper betting slips switched to this app, it could save an estimated 71 tonnes of paper a year – equivalent to more than 1,200 trees.
- Scanning services for the QR codes are available at 25 Singapore Pools outlets and more outlets will roll out soon.
The app will also prompt users to track their spending after each purchase. The app is targeted at punters who prefer to buy physical betting tickets from Singapore Pools outlets. It does not allow for instant online purchase of tickets, unlike the existing Singapore Pools mobile app launched in 2016 where users can access online betting services and purchase gaming tickets.
To register for a Singapore Pools account, you must be at least 21 years old and undergo an identity verification process as well as checks to ensure that you are not on the casino exclusion list.
With the eBetslip app you do not require an account which is a paperless way to mark out online bet slips for 4-D and Toto bets.
The verification process for the eBetslip app is less stringent as it does not allow direct buying of tickets. You must still proceed to a terrestrial Singapore Pools outlet to place, pay and get paper bet tickets for their bets marked.
Which means that the unique QR code will be generated after an e-betting slip is marked out. Punters can scan the code at Singapore Pools outlets for a physical betting ticket after making payment. Scanning services for the QR codes are available at 25 Singapore Pools outlets and more.
The launch of the paperless eBetslip app follows an earlier move by the lottery operator to go green. In July, it did away with pre-printed Singapore Sweep tickets and chose to have them printed on demand.
Singapore Pools also hopes users will practise responsible gaming through the app’s expenses manager. Before punters can mark out e-betting slips, they must set a weekly or monthly expenditure limit. Notifications will be sent when they reach 75 and 100 per cent of that amount.
