The Hong Kong Lottery is one of the most popular lottery games in the world. The game was first introduced in 1975 and has a huge following. It is run by the Hong Kong Jockey Club – one of the largest horse racing organisations in the world. The HKJC is the single largest tax payer in Hong Kong accounting for over 6.5% of all taxes collected.
The lottery is a fun and exciting way to win money, with the chance of winning big prizes in Mark Six being an added incentive. The jackpot starts at HK$8 MILLION and grows each week with 3 potential rollover draws every week – there have been some incredibly large Mark 6 jackpot wins to date!
Throughout the year the HKJC will also hold special Mark Six “Snowball Draws” that have bigger jackpots. These are held on public holidays and during festivals like the Mid-Autumn Snowball Draws, Chinese New Year Snowball Draws, Easter Snowball Draws, Summer Snowball Draws plus Christmas Snowball Draws which attract a lot of participation.
When playing the Mark 6 lottery players are required to pick a total of 6 numbers from a pool of 49. Matching all 6 main numbers to the drawing results will result in a winning prize.
There are a number of ways to play the lottery including buying tickets from authorized retailers or playing online via the official website and authorized Lottery Agent websites. The game can be played by anyone over the age of 18 who is legally resident in Hong Kong.
