Hong Kong’s lottery has a long history and is known for its high jackpots. It is operated by the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC), and is one of China’s oldest lotteries. The top prize is HK$24 million, and each ticket costs around HK$10.
Despite its reputation as a gambling hub, Hong Kong has very strict regulations regarding lottery games. This makes it a safe place to play, regardless of your location. In addition, the country’s laws prohibit the use of fake lottery tickets. The chances of winning are higher if you purchase tickets from an official website.
The Hong Kong Jockey Club has been specializing in horse racing for more than 120 years and is one of the world’s biggest non-profit organizations. It is also responsible for lotteries and sporting events in the city. HKJC is an integral part of the city and contributes more than HK$5 billion to the local economy each year.
This year, it will launch a flight ticket giveaway to lure travelers back to the city after it was closed off during the pandemic. Starting March 1, people will be able to visit the World of Winners splash page to enter for a chance to win a free ticket. The first batch of tickets will be given to people in Southeast Asia, followed by those in mainland China and then the rest of the world. Those who win tickets will be notified in three waves.
