The Hong Kong lottery is a great way to win a large amount of money quickly and easily. However, you should always play smartly and be aware of the rules and regulations of the game.
Lottery Hongkong is a 6-out-of-49 lottery-style game with seven prize levels. Each draw contains six numbers, plus an extra number (called the “extra” or “bonus” number). These winning numbers are then automatically picked from a lottery machine that has balls containing numbers from 1 to 49.
You can also choose to select your own numbers in this lottery, which is called the “quick pick” option. This option is available for all of the lottery games in Hong Kong and can be a great way to increase your chances of winning.
A Mark Six jackpot can start off at HK$ 8 million and then rolls over 3 times every week, increasing in size with each rollover. This progressively increases the jackpot and has seen some huge jackpots awarded over the years, with a few winners even taking home a whopping HK$ 100 million or more!
There are also special Mark Six “Snowball Draws” held throughout the year – these have bigger jackpots and attract a lot of participation. During these special occasions a percentage of the overall spend is taken and put into a snowball pool which then adds to the jackpot fund for that draw.
The Hong Kong lottery is legal and regulated by the government to ensure that it is fair and transparent. Moreover, players do not pay any taxes on the prizes they win from the lottery.
