The Hong Kong lottery is a popular lottery game that involves choosing six numbers out of 49 for a chance to win. The cost for each selection of numbers is 10 HKD. The number of winning tickets is one of the draws, and the first six numbers are called drawn and the seventh number is called an extra number, or half-number in Cantonese. The first prize is worth HKD1.8 million, and the second prize is worth HKD1.2 million.
The jackpot is constantly growing, and it is not unusual to see several winners. When multiple tickets are drawn, all the winnings are added to the jackpot for the next draw. If no winner is found, the prize is shared between the winners. If more than one winner has won the same prize, the jackpot grows until a winner comes along and takes it all. The maximum jackpot amount is HKD$100 million, although the chances of winning are far smaller.
The Hong Kong lottery is the only one available in Hong Kong. Although there are people who play it illegally in mainland China, this lottery is broadcast live on television. The process ensures that no one can manipulate the draw by claiming it was a scam. Mainland China has many other lotteries, but they are not broadcast live. There have also been reports of manipulated draws. The lottery is the most popular in the world, and is a good way to invest your money in the future.
