Therefore, it becomes a hot trend of entertainment today.
What is Toto4D?
I’m sure you will have many questions about this fantastic form. However, you have to understand some basic information first. 4Dtoto here means four digits. Toto 4 D is known as a lottery-style game and played mostly in Singapore and Malaysia. It’s easy and requires no much complicated skills except luck – every game of chance needs this most important thing. Since 1969, 4Dtoto has been appealing to many people not only in two countries but also around the world.
How to play and bet Toto 4D?
Toto 4 D is so simple to play. It requires you to choose your preferred 4 digital number from 0000 to 9999 (E.g: 1995, 2713 or 6688). All numbers of 10,000 numbers have equal chance of becoming winning numbers. Then, you have to decide whether to play the Small Forecast or the Big Forecast or both of them.
Small Forecast only allows you to get 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes while Big Forecast allows you to win all prizes containing 1st, 2nd, 3rd prizes as well as specials and consolation prizes. After that, you need to determine the betting amount for each Forecast chosen. Remember the minimum bet for the game is RM1.
As you know, RM is considered as the basic unit of money to bet in lottery and in 4dtoto. RM means Malaysia Ringgit and the minimum bet for the game is RM1. You can freely choose the higher amount to bet to get higher winning amount. As the newest results, RM1 = $0.2500.
Generally, operators have same lottery games as well as ways of bet, however there are ways that only are offered in these operators. There are 3 common ways of bet which are Straight bet, Roll bet and Permutation bet. Permutation bet in operators is called with different names such as i-PERM (Sports Toto) or IBox (Damacai).
In Permutation bet, if you play with 4 different digits, you will have 24 numbers of permutations. There will be 12 numbers of permutations if you play with 2 of 4 digits which are the same and will be 6 with 2 pairs of 4 digits which are the same or 4 numbers of permutations with 3 of 4 digits which are the same.
About prizes of 4Dtoto
Basically, prizes in Toto 4D include first, second, third prize and 10 consolation and 10 special prizes regardless which 4dtoto operator you place your bet. This also means that there are 23 numbers to be picked as the winning numbers in every draw.
All 23 sets of winning numbers are randomly selected from 4 draw machines and are conducted in full view of the public. An independent external auditor and a member of the audience and five draw officials are involved in the draw process. When they press the start switch on the control panel, 4 balls which numbered 0 to 9 will be drawn from 4 machines and become a winning number. This process is repeated starting from the consolation prizes until 23 sets of winning numbers are drawn. If you play with Permutation bet, your chance of getting winning numbers will be higher.
Now, I have a table of payout based on every RM1 bet
|Prize||Payout (big)||Payout (small)|
If you have bet RM10 big and RM10 small and get 2nd prize, your total winning will be calculated as follows:
- RM10 big 2nd prize = RM1,000 x 10 = RM10,000
- RM10 small 2nd prize = RM2,500 x 10 = RM25,000
- Total prize winning now = RM10,000 + RM25,000 = RM35,000
Although the payout and prizes structure is the same among these 3 NFO, the winning numbers are different. All you need to do is playing with the operator where you think your chosen numbers will be drawn.
