Lottery Hongkong is the official name for this lottery in Hong Kong. It is funded through proceeds from the sale of tickets. The majority of proceeds go to fund the state’s educational program. Around 50% of the proceeds go to reduce class size ratios for young children and the other 40% are used to repair public schools, improving the quality of education and reducing safety risks. A ticket can cost as little as HKD 10 for each selection. While the odds of winning are small, the majority of tickets fall somewhere in the middle of the draw.
The odds of winning the jackpot are one in 13,983,816. That’s lower than most six-digit lotto games. The minimum jackpot is $8 million, and if you play enough tickets, it may reach nearly HKD$100 million. You can also buy a ticket for the “Snowball Pool,” which is added randomly in the lottery to celebrate unique festivals and public holidays. You can find odds for this lottery here.
One of the world’s largest seated bronze Buddhas is the Tian Tan Big Buddha. This 108-foot-tall Buddha is located on a lotus flower and provides spectacular views of the island. The Buddha is surrounded by various statues. There are 240 steps to climb to the big bronze statue. Aside from the Buddha, there are also several other smaller statues and shrines around it. It’s easy to lose track of time while visiting the Big Buddha.
