SINGAPORE: Singapore Pools will resume online sports betting from Monday and online horse wagering for overseas races from Wednesday, said the gaming operator on Sunday (Jun 14).

Its branches, authorised retailers, Livewire venues and off-course betting centres will remain closed, "in line with the Government’s phased approach for safe reopening and resumption of business activities", said Singapore Pools in a press release.

Lottery draws, such as 4D, TOTO and Singapore Sweep, will also continue to be suspended.

"Customers who are holding on to tickets for postponed draws are advised to retain their tickets for upcoming draws," said Singapore Pools.
