Hong Kong lottery is one of the most popular lotteries in the world and its proceeds are used to fund charity and community projects. Hundreds of thousands of people participate in the lottery every week and it is a great way to meet new friends and make connections. In addition, the lottery offers many opportunities for people to win a large sum of money and improve their lives. The game is easy to play and you can check your winnings on the official website.
The Hong Kong Mark Six lottery is run by the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC), which is best known for horse racing, the most popular spectator sport in the city. However, the HKJC is also authorized to operate the lottery alongside its primary business and this has been a profitable venture for it. Currently, the top prize for matching all six numbers is HK$24 million and a single ticket costs HK $10.
There is a Quick Pick facility available when you purchase a lottery ticket which is similar to the Lucky Dip option that is used in the UK National Lottery or Europe’s EuroMillions and nearly all US Lottery games. This allows a computer to randomly select your numbers for you, making the odds of winning the first prize higher. There are three possible rollovers every week and the jackpot can build to a staggering figure – some incredibly big Mark Six jackpot figures have been won.
It was announced this week that the HKJC would resume the Mark Six draw on 24 September, almost eight months after it was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The HKJC is confident that the public will be pleased to see that the draw is back on. The proceeds of the lottery are a major source of income for the HKJC and are used for various social welfare services.
