Lottery Hongkong is one of the world’s biggest and most popular lotteries. Players can buy tickets online or at local retail stores. It’s an easy game to play and the odds of winning are relatively good, with a 1 in approximately 50 chance of winning a prize.
The Mark Six lottery is run by the Hong Kong Jockey Club, one of the largest horse racing organisations in the world and is licensed by the Hong Kong government. Revenue raised is used to support a range of charitable causes and is one of the few legal forms of gambling allowed in Hong Kong.
In addition to the regular thrice weekly draws – the Hong Kong Mark 6 also has special Snowball draws throughout the year that add extra money to the jackpot fund. The prizes are bigger on these occasions and can be won by picking a minimum of 6 numbers out of a pool of 49.
The jackpot starts off at HK$ 8 MILLION but can rollover if no winner is selected and the size of the prize increases each time it rolls over until finally it can be won by someone lucky enough to pick all six winning numbers. Unlike most other national lotteries – the Mark Six has no fixed number of draws per week so there is a huge potential to win big!
Previously only citizens living in Hong Kong were able to purchase tickets for the Mark Six lottery – but today there are a good number of authorized and genuine online lottery ticket sales retailers who offer Mark 6 tickets to people from around the world. There are even websites that allow you to select your own 6 numbers and then purchase your Mark 6 lottery ticket from the comfort of your own home!
