The World of Winners: Flight Tickets
If you’re an avid traveler, you might already know that Hong Kong is offering a chance to win a free trip by playing the World of Winners lottery. Starting March 1, locals can enter the draw for a chance to win airline tickets to a variety of destinations around the world, including Hong Kong.
Using a 6/49 Matrix
The Hong Kong lottery uses a 6-out-of-49 matrix, which is a popular and common format used in many other lotteries throughout the world. This format has a number of benefits, such as being easy to play and the ability to have a jackpot of up to 8 million HK dollars.
Special Mark Six Snowball draws
During the year the HKJC holds various special Mark Six “Snowball” draws that offer bigger jackpots than their normal thrice weekly draws. These include Mid-Autumn Snowball Draws, Chinese New Year Snowball Draws, Easter Snowball Draws and Summer Snowball Draws which attract a lot of participants.
In addition to the regular thrice weekly draw, players can also participate in special “Snowball Pools” during these special Mark Six drawings that increase the size of the jackpot prize fund. The jackpot figure of these special Mark Six draws starts off at HK$ 8 MILLION and will rollover each week – increasing in size as it is not won.
Smugglers arrested for importing fake lottery tickets
Hong Kong Customs has recently detected a smuggling case of Mark Six lottery tickets. In September, they arrested a woman suspected of purchasing around 16 000 Mark Six lottery tickets in two betting centers.
