The Hong Kong lottery system is one of the most popular in the world, and it is easy to get involved. Joining this system is as easy as clicking a few buttons. With the help of Data HK, you can get access to all the costs associated with the Hong Kong lottery system. Although the Hong Kong lottery system is not allowed to release data to the public, many other countries have legalized this system and made its data available to the public.
The amount of prize money that can be won depends on the number of tickets sold. If there are no winners, the unclaimed prize fund is added to the jackpot for the next draw. Then, the unclaimed prizes are distributed to the winners of first, second, third, and fourth prize. This can quickly add up, and the jackpot fund can reach nearly HKD$100 million. Several draws were held during 2004 that featured a high number of unclaimed prizes, including the third prize.
The Hong Kong lottery is run by the Hong Kong Jockey Club and is ranked number 53 in the world in lottery sales. Sales per capita are approximately US$120. The Mark Six lottery featured a’snowball’ draw in 1997 that saw 39 tickets win HK$705,770 each. Today, there are six out of 49 games held three times per week. While the jackpot prize is still relatively small, it is one of the most popular games.
