How to Play the Hong Kong Lottery
If you love lottery games and want to win some big prizes then you should definitely check out the Hong Kong lottery. This is a great way to win cash, cars and even luxury vacations. It is also very easy to play and can be played by anyone from around the world.
The Hong Kong lottery is run by the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) and consists of various games, including the traditional Mark Six Lottery. You can play this game online or by visiting an authorized HKJC retailer. The cost is HK$ 10 per entry and a prize can be paid in cash or by cheque.
There are 7 prize levels and 49 numbers that can win you a prize in this lottery. You pick 6 numbers from a pool from 1 to 49 and an extra number is chosen by a machine to determine winners on each level. You can also choose to buy a Quick Pick ticket where your numbers will be randomly selected for you.
The jackpot starts off at HK$ 8 million and it can grow over time to very sizeable sums as it rolls over each time a prize is not won. If you do win it, the prize will be paid out in cash or by cheque and a claim can be made within 60 days of the draw.
A lucky few have won big in the past but the chances of winning aren’t all that good. In fact, the average winning number is a repeat hit from the last drawing. This means that if you choose hot numbers, it’s best to play multiple tickets.
It’s a 6/49 game with twice weekly draws on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9pm in Hong Kong. The lucky numbers are announced on TV and online. There are also special prizes in this lottery that you can try your luck at winning if you’re looking to increase your chances of a big win.
If you’re planning a trip to Hong Kong, you might want to consider taking part in the lottery for free flight tickets. The campaign, which will be available on World of Winners from March 1, will give travelers the chance to win one of three tickets to travel to Hong Kong for free, as long as they enter their name into the lottery by March 1.
While there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to win a ticket, it’s worth playing the Mark Six lottery if you’re going to be in Hong Kong and you haven’t yet. It’s a popular game in the city and has a few special Snowball draws that will increase your chance of winning.
The Snowballs take a small percentage of every bet on the Mark Six and put it into a fund that can be used to increase the jackpot for the next draw. The money raised from these draws is then distributed to different charities in the community.
In addition to these regular draw jackpots, there are also special lottery draws throughout the year. These special “Snowball” draws are held during holidays and festivals like Mid-Autumn, Chinese New Year, Easter and Summer.
