Annual Report 2018/ 19



About The Tote Board Group

Tote Board family comprises Tote Board, Singapore Pools and Singapore Turf Club (STC). Tote Board exercises management oversight over its subsidiaries – Singapore Pools and STC – to ensure that their operations are conducted safely and professionally with the highest standards of integrity and responsible gambling practices. Tote Board channels the gaming revenue of Singapore Pools and STC, together with the casino entry levy, to support and fund worthy causes towards Giving Hope and Improving Lives.

Established in January 1988, Tote Board (Singapore Totalisator Board) is a statutory board under the Ministry of Finance. As a broad-based grantmaking organisation, Tote Board works closely with our stakeholders and partners to support a broad and diverse range of worthy projects in the sectors of Arts, Community Development, Education, Health, Social Service and Sports.

The wide range of our grants and initiatives has enabled us to touch the lives of almost all Singaporeans at each stage of their lives. Through our grantmaking projects, we provide equitable opportunities for vulnerable groups, strengthen communities, and enhance quality of life.

Our goal is to build a flourishing society in Singapore. We want to inspire positive change and contribute towards building an inclusive, resilient and vibrant community, while fostering a caring and compassionate nation.

Singapore Pools was established in 1968 with the mission of providing safe and trusted betting in support of the nation’s effort to counter illegal gambling. It offers lottery games as well as sports betting on football matches and Formula One motor racing. As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tote Board, surplus generated from its business operations are channelled to Tote Board for the funding of worthy causes. Its vision is to be a world-class socially responsible gaming company trusted by customers and valued by the community. In 2019, it was re-certified and achieved, for the second time, Level 4 of the World Lottery Association Responsible Gaming Framework, the highest global standard of responsible gaming.

With effect from 7 January 2019, as part of a business operations review, Singapore Pools took over the management and operations of horse betting from STC.

Founded in 1842, STC became an agent of Tote Board in 1988 and relocated to its current premises at Kranji racecourse in 1999. STC adopts a strong “Play Responsibly” stance. Through regular engagements with its customers, STC advocates a balanced approach towards enjoying the sport and the thrills of horse racing as an entertainment and sport, without adversely affecting customers’ financial situations or lifestyles. STC also opens its racecourse premises for wide-ranging recreational activities for Singaporeans from all walks of life to enjoy.



We uplift our community by Giving Hope to the vulnerable groups and Improving Lives of all in Singapore.

We contribute towards building an inclusive, resilient, and vibrant community through our grants.

We ensure that Singapore Pools and Singapore Turf Club conduct their businesses in a socially responsible manner, and channel surpluses towards our grantmaking.
