The Hong Kong lottery is run by the HKJC Lotteries Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Hong Kong Jockey Club. The lottery is one of the most popular in the world, and its sales in 2005 reached more than US$828 million. Hong Kong has a population of around 6.9 million people, so per capita sales were still relatively small. The main lottery game, the Mark Six lottery, is also known as the “Mark Six.” This is the primary draw, and consists of six out of 49 numbers drawn three times a week.
You can win a lot of money playing the Hong Kong lottery by following a few tips. To begin with, know your lucky numbers. There are certain numbers that are highly likely to hit, but you should also include some long shots. Hot numbers are the most common, so try to include a hot number with at least one long shot. It’s not uncommon for someone to win a lottery multiple times in a row if they choose the right numbers.
After the draw, the money from the unclaimed prizes is added to the jackpot fund. If you do not win the jackpot, your prize money will roll over to the next draw. And so on, until you hit the jackpot! That’s quite a bit of money! There are also six additional prize tiers, which offer much better odds than the jackpot. While these prizes don’t quite rival the jackpot, they can be worth millions!
