Singapore Pools will be conducting its 2016 Toto Hongbao Draw (3137/2016), with a jackpot prize of $12 million, on Feb 19.

The draw will start at 9.30pm, at the Singapore Pools Building at 210 Middle Road.

Sales for the draw will start on Feb 4 from 6.10pm at all Singapore Pools branches and authorised retailers. Ticket sales will close at 9pm on Feb 19.

The results of the draw will be posted on the Singapore Pools website (www.singaporepools.com.sg) from 10.30pm on the evening of the draw, as well as on the Singapore Pools Results Facebook page and the Singapore Pools Twitter page.

Results will also be published in all major local daily newspapers on Feb 20.

Last year, two people split the $12 million jackpot after picking all six of the winning numbers in the Toto Hongbao Draw.

Each winner took home $6,033,860.50 - the biggest individual windfall in the draw's history.

The previous best was in 2007, when two people shared the $10.5 million prize.

The highest recorded jackpot since the annual draw started in 2000 was $12.8 million in 2002, which was shared among nine winners.

The retail outlets with the most Group 1 prize winners last year include Delisia Agency and Lee Eng Trading Store.
