Sandakan 4D (STC 4D) is the sole lottery entry in the portfolio of Sandakan Turf Club (STC). STC is under the ownership of Everise Ventures Sdn Bhd – a corporate entity created for the sole purpose of carrying out lotteries and forecasts pools in the Sabah region.
Just like the name suggests, this is a standard 4D game. The prominence of these is enormous in Malaysia, and there are several reasons why.
For a start, STC 4D offers betting flexibility. A player is free to determine the amount they’re willing to wager on a numerical combination. While the wager amount does impact the payout, it also gives the player a lot of freedom in terms of testing their luck with a sum deemed appropriate.
Also, there are three Sandakan 4D drawings per week. Players benefit from multiple chances to test their luck and win a nice sum.
If you’re interested in Sandakan 4D, the following overview will give you a much better idea about the game’s characteristics, the rules, and the payouts to anticipate in the event of getting lucky.
STC 4D Rules
Sandakan 4D is a four-digit game. To participate, players have to select a four-digit number in the range from 0000 to 9999. The minimum betting amount per a four-digit ticket submission is one ringgit.
To participate, players also have to choose the type of bet. Just like in the case of other 4D games, there’s a big bet and a small bet.
The big bet is called a big forecast in the case of STC 4D. The maximum prize in the case of a big forecast is smaller, though there are a few additional prize tiers that will be unavailable in the case of a small 4D bet.
Small forecasts come with a significantly bigger top prize, but the number of prize tiers is limited to just three.
Apart from picking a standard entry, players have an additional opportunity that can increase the odds of winning. This opportunity is called the STC-E Box bet. The box bet covers permutations, and you can choose anywhere between four and 24 permutations per submission. Keep in mind that the odds increase when you activate the STC-E Box bet but the prizes players will be entitled to in the event of winning are going to be smaller.
The final two options worth exploring are the roll front/roll back bets and easy pick bets.
Roll bets allow you to roll either the first or the last digit of your bet. If you activate this option, your four-digit bet will look something like this: R237. In this case, R will be replaced by all possible numbers from zero to nine. The roll bet allows you to increase your odds of winning. You have the freedom of choosing whether you’d like to roll the first or the last digit in your combination.
Finally, the easy pick bet is a standard choice. If you don’t have a favorite number to play, you can have the digits randomly chosen for you by the software at the STC retail venue.
Sandakan 4D tickets can be bought at all of the Sandakan Turf Club agencies throughout East Malaysia.
At the time being, STC hasn’t made an online ticket-buying option available. Thus, you have to be in Malaysia to make a purchase. Foreigners who are residing legally on the territory of the country can get STC 4D tickets.
All players interested in lottery games in Malaysia have to be aged at least 21 to buy tickets.
STC 4D Prizes
Sandakan 4D live drawings occur three times per week – on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. STC 4D live drawings take place at 7 p.m. in the STC headquarters. Members of the general public are free to attend the procedure and witness the drawing of the numbers.
Each time, there will be 23 winning numbers drawn. The largest payout is 3,500 ringgits per a bet of one ringgit. Here’s more information about the different prize tiers and the anticipated payouts per bet of one ringgit:
It’s up to you to decide whether you want to have access to a larger pool of prizes or to a bigger amount in the event of winning the first, second, or third prize.
Sandakan 4D result announcements are made after each live drawing takes place. You can find the Sandakan 4D live result at the corporate headquarters, on the official STC website, and at multiple agencies throughout Sabah.
To claim a prize, you have to present a valid ticket and an ID. Sums of up to 12,500 ringgits can be claimed at any of the Sandakan Turf Club agencies, and the payout is immediate. For a larger sum, you will need to visit one of the STC offices in Sabah. There are four locations – in Kota Kinabalu, Keningau, Sandakan, and Tawau. The exact addresses and phone numbers are listed on the STC website.
Players have six months from the date of the drawing to make a prize claim. If they don’t come forward over this period, the respective amount will be submitted to the Ministry of Finance and used for charitable causes.
Keep in mind that the State Government of Sabah imposes a 15 percent income tax on lottery prizes. This is something to account for when you claim your STC 4D prize.
