Playing the Hong Kong Lottery Online
A variety of different lottery games are available for players to participate in online. You can buy tickets for these games either from the Lottery Hongkong website or directly from local retail stores. There are many advantages to playing the Hong Kong lottery, including the fact that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home to win.
The HK Jockey Club (HKJC) runs the Hong Kong Lottery, and is among the oldest non-profit organisations in the city. Its main function is to run horse races, but it also organizes lotteries and other gambling-related events.
In the past, smuggling has been a problem, but a recent operation has shown that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to transport the lottery around Hong Kong. Earlier this week, Hong Kong customs intercepted a cargo vessel in the waters west of the city and seized 16,000 Mark Six lottery tickets believed to be destined for sale illegally in China and Macau.
The seized tickets were already redeemable for prizes totalling HK$70,000. About 600 of the tickets were winners, according to a law enforcement source.
