Mark Six lottery
The Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) operates the Mark 6 lottery – one of the most popular and successful lotteries in Hong Kong. It is run alongside its primary business of horse racing and aims to generate funds for charitable causes.
Mark Six draws are held 3 times a week and there are 7 prizes to be won, including a special number known as the Extra Number. The jackpot prize is awarded to a single winner who matches all 6 main numbers plus the Extra Number.
Throughout the year the HKJC holds a variety of special Mark Six “Snowball Draws” in addition to its regular thrice weekly draws. For these special draws a certain percentage of each ticket purchased is taken and placed into a “Snowball Pool”. This is added to the 1st division prize for that particular draw thus increasing the size of the Mark Six Jackpot even further.
The Mark Six jackpot starts off at HK$ 8 MILLION and can grow incredibly fast with no limits to how much it can increase in size. This has resulted in some huge Mark Six jackpot winners.
