How to play the Hong Kong lottery? The rules of the game are simple: you choose six numbers from one to 49. The first six numbers drawn are the “drawn numbers” and the seventh is the “extra number”, which is known as the “half number” in Cantonese. Winnings are calculated based on the percentages of the six winning numbers, and if you match all six of them, you win a prize.

The money from the unclaimed prizes goes into the jackpot for the next draw. Until there is a winner, the money from the jackpot pool is added to the next drawing, increasing the jackpot to almost HKD$100 million. On certain days, the unclaimed money is added to the jackpot, and if you are lucky, it falls on a public holiday or a unique festival. This process is repeated until a winner is declared.

The Hong Kong lottery is run by the HKJC Lotteries Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Hong Kong Jockey Club. The lottery was first launched in 1975 to combat illegal lottery games in China. Players select six numbers from one to 49 and match them in the order the Lottery drew them. The highest jackpot is HK$100 million, and the odds of winning are 1 in 13,983,816.
