Hong Kong Lottery

Are you a Hong Kong lottery player? If so, you may be interested in learning more about the Hong Kong lottery system. Unlike most lottery systems, Hong Kong’s is an ecological system. The money raised from each ticket sold goes to charitable organizations and local residents. A winner’s share of the proceeds is distributed to those in need. A person must be at least 18 years old to play the lottery. A person may also participate only if he or she is a Hong Kong citizen.

If the winning ticket is not claimed, the money from the unclaimed prize goes into the jackpot fund for the next draw. If there are more than one winner, the jackpot fund will continue to grow until one winner comes along. This process continues until the jackpot reaches HKD$100 million. In addition, the lottery adds money to the jackpot pool on randomly chosen days, such as public holidays and unique festivals. In 2007, no one won the lottery.

The average sales per capita in Hong Kong are US$120. Hong Kong is home to more than six million residents. The lottery’s brand name is “Mark Six.” The lottery features 6 out of 49 games every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, allowing a winner to win up to HK$120,000.
