Lottery Hongkong is a lottery game organized by the government in Hong Kong. It is a popular game and offers large jackpots. There are many ways to win the lottery in Hong Kong, including online and at retail outlets. The jackpots can be quite high, but it is important to read the rules and regulations carefully before playing.
The regular Mark Six drawing takes place 3 times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 9pm. Players choose 6 numbers from a pool of 49 to be drawn. An extra number is also drawn each time which determines winners on prize levels 2, 4 and 6. A minimum of 8 million Hong Kong dollars is guaranteed for each draw. If there is no winner for a particular draw, the sum will roll over to the next one.
HKJC also organizes special Mark Six “Snowball Draws” throughout the year with larger jackpots. These are typically held around public holidays and during festivals like Mid-Autumn Snowball Draws, Chinese New Year Snowball Draws and Easter Snowball Draws. A percentage of the money that is spent on tickets for these special draws will be taken into the Snowball Pool which increases the size of the jackpots.
HKJC monitors the process of releasing the results of each lottery draw to ensure that there is no fraud or other illegal activity. This is an important step to make sure that the results are fair and accurate.
