Lottery Hongkong is a popular lottery game that is incredibly well known across the city of Hong Kong. It is administered by HKJC Lotteries Ltd which is a subsidiary of the renowned Hong Kong Jockey Club and is a standard part of everyday life for many local residents. The game is a traditional jackpot style lottery with seven prize tiers and 49 numbers to choose from.
The game has become increasingly popular with people from around the world registering to play and a number of different strategies are used by players from across Asia and Europe to maximise their chances of winning. There are also special snowball draws during major events such as Chinese New Year, Easter and Summer that draw people from all over the region to play.
Unlike most other lottery games across the globe, Hong Kong has a unique business model that sees a portion of all ticket sales being given to charity. Approximately HK$ 1 Billion is sent to community projects and charities every year and the HKJC is one of the biggest charity donators in the world today. The money is used to fund a number of areas including sports and healthy living, education and opportunity plus cultural and arts development.
