Lottery Hongkong is a 6/49 lottery game that is held 3 times a week by the Hong Kong Jockey Club. This is a popular and well known lottery that has a jackpot prize of up to HK$ 5 million plus a range of other prizes to be won.
The Mark Six lottery is one of the most popular of all the Hong Kong lotteries – with over a quarter billion tickets sold every year. It is a traditional lotto game where you select your own 6 numbers from a pool that contains 49 different numbers – these are then drawn in the same order as in any other lottery. Then a 7th number is also drawn which is called the Extra Number and this is used to determine winners on all prize levels from prize level 2 right through to the jackpot prize – making it an extremely lucrative lottery game!
The Hong Kong Mark Six lottery is run by the HKJC – which is authorized by the Hong Kong Government to operate the lottery alongside its main business of horse racing – the most popular sport in Hong Kong. The revenue from the Hong Kong Mark Six lottery is then donated to a wide range of charities that benefit society throughout the whole of Hong Kong. These donations include helping children in poor areas of the world to become citizens of Hong Kong, enhancing sports facilities, providing scholarships for people to attend higher education, aiding the development of healthy living, supporting the arts, and promoting social opportunities among others.
