Lottery Hongkong is the oldest lottery in China and it has been run by the Hong Kong Jockey Club since 1975. It has become a major source of income for the Hong Kong Jockey Club to help fund social welfare services.
One of the most popular ways to play the Hong Kong lottery is through Mark Six, a 6/49 game that offers reasonable prizes and several prize divisions. It is regulated by a strict legal framework and offers international players a safe environment to place their bets.
The Mark Six jackpot prize starts at HK$8 million and can grow to incredible sums with 3 potential rollover draws each week. This means that the jackpot can continue to grow until someone wins it, though there is a maximum amount that can be won in any one draw.
Throughout the year, the Hong Kong Jockey Club holds special Mark Six “Snowball” draws that feature much bigger jackpots. These drawings are held on public holidays or during festivals like Chinese New Year, Easter and Christmas attracting massive participation.
The HK Jockey Club has one of the best reputations in the world for running legitimate betting opportunities and paying out prizes. The Club also donates a large amount of money to charity and is one of the largest donators in the world.
