Since its formation, Singapore Pools has been playing an important role in gradually changing the turbulent, risky gambling scene of the 1960s and 1970s to one where the social cost to individuals and families has become more manageable.
With a more regulated environment, we are able to educate customers about playing with care, playing within their means and dealing with the risk of problem gambling. As a socially responsible gaming operator, Singapore Pools upholds self-regulating guidelines in the way we run our operations day-to-day.
More significantly, as a not-for-profit organisation, the surpluses generated by Singapore Pools have been distributed since 1968 to benefit good causes in the sports, charity, community development, education, health, and arts sectors.
Some of the iconic projects that we have funded include Singapore’s first National Stadium in 1973, the Indoor Stadium in 1988, and the Esplanade – Theatres On The Bay in 1996. We are also principal sponsors for the annual nationwide events, the Chingay Parade and National Day Parade. Through our parent, Tote Board, Singapore Pools also provides ongoing funding for national infrastructure such as the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, The Sports Hub and Gardens By The Bay.
Today, Singapore Pools contributes about $2 billion annually to the Government in the form of taxes and duties, and for the funding of good causes.
The truth is, none of these good things would have been possible if Singapore Pools had not provided that safe outlet for customers
Today, the combined effects of affluence, globalisation and the Internet has ushered in a gambling environment that is multifaceted, porous and without boundaries. There is the ominous threat from illegal operators who have no qualms about causing gambling addiction. The attractive profits have also prompted innovative means of getting off the radar screens of the law, such as disguising online gambling as Internet or mobile games.
The betting industry is a challenging environment. Yet, the battle must go on — against those who could harm our people, especially our young. At stake are not just customers who may gamble away their livelihood, but the peace of mind and happiness of their loved ones.
Being entrusted by the society to provide a safe outlet for gambling in Singapore, we are committed to operate with the highest standards of responsible gambling.
