Mark Six lottery is a jackpot style game that was first launched back in 1975 and is still very popular amongst the people of Hong Kong. It is very easy to play and has three big draws every week – plus a low betting fee.
Mark 6 (Chinese: Liu He Cai; Jyutping: luk6 hap6 coi2; Cantonese Yale: dochuhngchoi) is a lottery game organised by the Hong Kong Jockey Club. It was first established in 1975 as a way to battle illegal lottery games that were being used widely in China at the time.
The game works by picking six numbers from a pool of 49 that can win you one of seven prize levels. There is also an extra number drawn that is used to determine the winners on the second, fourth and sixth prize tiers.
Hong Kong has many different types of lottery games and the Mark Six is no exception. It can be played from anywhere in the world, and there is no need for downloads or complex programs.
It is also a lot easier to win the jackpot than you might think and there are a variety of ways in which you can try and win the game. For example, you can choose to play on the website or through an authorized HKJC agent’s online lottery ticket sales site.
There is a huge demand for lottery tickets in mainland China and Macau because of the relatively high jackpots. The top prize in the Hong Kong lottery, for example, has hit a sum of HK$24m after three rollovers, making it the highest-valued jackpot in Asia and one of the largest in the world.
