If you’re traveling to Hong Kong in the near future, you may be able to win free flight tickets from one of the three airlines participating in a new lottery-based giveaway. Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong Airlines and HK Express are all taking part in the World of Winners campaign, which launched March 1. Travelers can enter the giveaway from March 1 to April 30. Those in Southeast Asia can apply first, followed by residents of mainland China and then travelers around the world. The airline tickets will be awarded through a lottery system, so it’s important to submit your application as soon as possible to have the best chance of winning.
The first version of the Hong Kong Lottery, known as Mark Six, was launched in 1975 as a way to combat illegal lotteries. Players choose numbers from 1 to 49, and if they pick all six winning numbers in order, they receive the jackpot. The odds of winning are 1 in 13,983,816. However, there are a few tips and strategies that can help players increase their chances of winning. These include using hot and cold number statistics, purchasing multiple tickets, and playing consistently.
The draw is held at City Hall and is broadcast on TVB. To ensure that the draw is fair, employees from HKJC’s security and customer service departments closely monitor the process. Balls used in the draw are also weighed and examined by X-ray before each drawing. Proceeds from the lottery are distributed to various taxes and causes.
