Lottery Hongkong is a fun and easy-to-use lottery game that’s available online to players around the world. It follows the traditional 6/49 format and comes with a few exciting twists that make it stand out from other lottery games. The draw takes place thrice a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays and bets are accepted until approximately 15 minutes prior to the televised drawing. The jackpot is a minimum of 8 million Hong Kong dollars and, like most lottery games, any unclaimed prize money will roll over into the next drawing. The HKJC also holds special Mark Six “Snowball” draws during the year that have higher jackpot figures and these are very popular.
As with all lottery games, there are some smart ways to play and some strategies to follow. We’ll take a look at some of those in this article so stay tuned for more information.
Hong Kong’s Customs and Excise Department has a new problem to deal with: smuggled Mark Six tickets being sent to Macau and Mainland China. As reported by local news outlet HK01, officials on September 21 intercepted a vessel that was trying to ship dozens of Mark Six tickets to its destination. The boat was seized and the smugglers on board were arrested. They face fines of up to $254,800 and up to seven years in prison for importing or exporting undeclared goods. There is a demand for the lottery in Macau and Mainland China because of its relatively high top prize.
