Mark Six Lottery game
The Mark 6 is a jackpot style lottery game that is run by the Hong Kong Jockey Club and is one of the most popular lottery games in the world. The HKJC runs the Mark Six alongside its main business of horse racing – which is a very popular sport in Hong Kong.
It uses a 6/49 matrix where you need to choose 6 numbers from a pool of 49. These numbers are then drawn 3 times every week. You can place bets on the draw until about 15 minutes before it takes place – or at any time during the day or night.
You can play the Mark Six for as little as HK$ 10 per ticket. The jackpot is a minimum of HK$ 8 million and can go up to HK$ 100 million.
There are 6 prize tiers and an extra number that is drawn for each drawing. The extra number is used to determine winners on the second, fourth and sixth tiers.
Besides the Mark Six Lottery – there are several other jackpot style lotto games in Hong Kong. The HKJC also runs the Hong Kong Millionaire Raffle – a multi-draw raffle that awards millions of dollars in prizes each year.
