The Hong Kong Mark Six lottery is one of the most popular lotto games in the city – and is a regular feature of many people’s lives. The lottery is run by the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) which is a subsidiary of the Hong Kong Government and is authorized to operate it alongside its primary business of horse racing.
It is a jackpot style lottery with 7 prize levels and the winning numbers are chosen automatically from a machine that contains balls with numbers 1 to 49. There are several ways to play and the minimum cost is HK$10 for one entry.
In addition to the Mark Six lottery – the HKJC also runs a number of other lotteries including the Snowball Draw which features much higher prizes than the standard Match 6 Lottery and can have huge jackpots. The HKJC is also a very good charity donor and gives away around HK$1 Billion each year to a wide range of community projects.
You can buy Mark Six tickets online from a variety of different retailers and you are able to play from anywhere in the world that you may be living in. However – it is recommended that you only purchase your Mark Six lottery tickets from a genuine authorised retailer in Hong Kong and ensure that you are entering into a valid draw.
A large number of lottery tickets have been seized in an anti-smuggling operation and authorities believe they were being sold to smugglers in Macau and mainland China for a high profit. The tickets were found in a box on board a cargo vessel that was intercepted off Black Point in Tuen Mun last Wednesday.
