The Lottery Hongkong is run by the Hong Kong Jockey Club – one of the world’s largest horse racing organisations. It is authorized by the Government of Hong Kong to operate the Mark Six lottery alongside its main business of horse racing – a popular sport that attracts tens of thousands of spectators every year.
The Mark 6 draws are held 3 times a week. Each draw contains 49 numbers – with the top jackpot starting at HK$ 8 MILLION and rising each time it is not won. This means that you could win a huge amount of money on the Mark Six – with some incredibly large jackpot prizes having been won in the past.
Special “Snowball” draws are also held – these have bigger jackpots than the thrice weekly Mark 6 Draws and can be worth up to 100 million Hong Kong dollars. These draws are usually held on public holidays and during major festivals like the Mid-Autumn Snowball Draw, Chinese New Year Snowball Draw, Easter Snowball Draw, Summer Snowball Draw plus Christmas Snowball Draws – attracting a huge amount of player participation each time.
Buying a lottery ticket in Hong Kong is not difficult and can be done from anywhere in the world. You can buy your tickets online or from an authorised lottery retailer or agent in the city.
The Hong Kong lottery is very well regulated and has many benefits for players. It offers reasonable prizes, several prize divisions and affordable tickets. It is also regulated by a strict legal framework. This makes it one of the safest lottery games in the world.
