The Mark Six is a popular lottery betting game in Hong Kong. The drawing is conducted three times a week and betting closes 15 minutes before the televised drawing. This game has a high payout for matching six main numbers and the bonus ball. It also has a low betting fee and three big draws a week.
The lottery is known to be a lucrative business, but smuggling is a major issue. A recent shipment included more than 6,000 electronic products and lottery tickets. The HKJC believes that there was a criminal syndicate behind the smuggling. The suspects were arrested and are now being held in police custody.
Players must match six numbers from a set of 49 in order to win. Each selection costs 10 HKD. The first six numbers are called drawn numbers, while the seventh number is known as the extra or half number. The payout for 1st and 3rd division prizes depends on sales of the draw. If there is a jackpot, the first prize payout is guaranteed to be HKD$8 million.
