Lottery Hongkong and XOTTO

Lottery Hongkong

Lottery Hongkong is one of the most popular lottery games in Asia. It’s also a good way to earn some extra money and boost your bank account. However, winning a big prize requires a little bit of luck and some strategies.

The Hong Kong Mark Six Lottery is a 6/49 lottery format that’s organized by the Hong Kong Jockey Club and draws thrice a week, on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday. Bets are accepted up to 15 minutes before the televised drawing. The game has 6 prize tiers, with the jackpot going to individuals who get all 6 main numbers right.

In a recent smuggling bust, the Customs and Excise Department seized around 16,000 Mark Six lottery tickets that were intended to be smuggled to mainland China and Macau. According to HK01, the department handed the tickets over to the Hong Kong Jockey Club for verification. The Jockey Club found that around 600 of the tickets were already redeemable for prizes worth up to HK$70,000.

XOTTO is a new blockchain-based lottery service that replicates the Hong Kong Mark Six lottery system on Ethereum blockchain and solves issues related to traditional and centralized online gambling regarding fairness, transparency, and redemption of winnings. It also provides complete anonymity to players, unless they choose to leave their email address on the website. The platform also offers smart contracts, so that the winnings are automatically delivered to winners’ digital wallets. For more information about the project, you can read its whitepaper.
