There is no better way to beat the Singapore heat than a cool swim in one of the city’s public pools. These pristine swimming pools are great for families with kids and offer a safe space to escape the summer heat. They also offer water slides, jacuzzis and a whole host of other water activities. Some of these pools are indoors so you don’t need to worry about the weather. The pools also have lifeguards on hand, so you can rest assured that your children are in good hands.
Founded in 1968, Singapore Pools is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Tote Board—a statutory board under the Ministry of Finance. Its mission is to provide a legal avenue for lottery and gaming in Singapore, counter illegal betting syndicates, channel surplus earnings into the community, and create new revenue streams. Its IT accomplishments include implementing PoolzConnect—a telephone betting system that connects customers with an IP-enabled call center and secure payment gateway.
This platform allows customers to place bets remotely and receive their winning prizes in real time. It also gives customers the flexibility to choose a variety of betting options, including sports betting, virtual games, and 3D slots. Its website has a comprehensive selection of betting events and a user-friendly interface. In addition to its online offerings, Singapore Pools is available in traditional retail outlets and via its mobile app.
The Singapore pools app is free to download and offers a range of betting options for a wide variety of sports events. Users can deposit and withdraw funds using their bank link or through Direct Debit payments. There is a monthly limit on deposits and withdrawals. Bank link transfers are instant, while bank-to-bank debit transfers take up to 14 days.
To reduce outages and enable faster digital betting services, Singapore Pools migrated its on-premise applications monitoring system to the cloud using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). This improved visibility and automation helps them resolve issues within minutes, compared to hours previously. In addition, they can use the dashboards and insights provided by OCI to continuously optimise system resources.
The latest version of the Singapore Pools app has been updated with several enhancements and features. This includes a streamlined login process, enhanced privacy controls, and a redesign of the app’s navigation. The new app is available on iOS and Android devices.
