The History And Statistics Of 4D :
With the evidence from the betting trial in a Singapore Court in 1956, the 4D is considered to be originated in Kedah in 1951.
A schoolboy made a decision that he offered his bicycle to exchange 100 1$ tickets, each had two digits. The winning ticket is the one which has the correspondence of the number with the last two digits of the first winning ticket in a Malaysian Turf Club sweepstake. This conducted to the 2D lottery and created the 3D and 4D, which were widespread in Singapore and Malaysia from the 1950s.
The first operator which introduced the 4D draw in Singapore in May 1966 was the Singapore Turf Club. They offered one $1 ticket with the highest prize Singapore $2000. Until May 2004, the Singapore Turf Club ended this prize, and the Singapore Pools replace the Singapore Turf Club to control all the draws.On 31 May 1986, the Singapore Pools introduced new computerized gaming systems, where sold 4D bets. This was the stunning beginning because, in the foundational draw, the winning number for the first prize was 8838, which had a similar pronunciation with fa (Chinese: 发) or “prosperity” in Madarin. 8838 is also a traditional lucky symbol of punters. With the enthusiasm to welcome the new 4D of the gamblers, the Singapore Pools’s revenue moved up from 215% to over Singapore $283 million.
