The Match Six lottery from the city of Hong Kong is a popular choice for players looking to win big prizes with a low betting fee. This lottery game is well-regulated with a set of rules and is available to international players as well. In addition, it has a number of prize divisions and affordable tickets.
Unlike other large national lottery games, Match Six does not offer a jackpot. Instead, some of the funds from each drawing go into a Snowball pool, which increases the size of the next draw. This means the odds of winning the top prize are still relatively good at around 1 in 50.
A recent investigation by customs officers discovered that around 16,000 Mark Six tickets were being smuggled out of Hong Kong on a river vessel. This boat was seized by Customs and Excise Department officials in waters west of the city. The HKJC has verified the tickets and found that around 600 were already redeemable for prize winnings worth over HK$70,000.
The Match Six lottery is administered by the HKJC, which was established in 1884. Originally it was a horse racing operator, but over the years it has expanded its operations into other areas such as sports and betting. It is also a non-profit organization that is responsible for charitable projects in the country. It is one of the oldest organizations in Hong Kong.
