Hong Kong Lottery – Mark Six
The Hong Kong lottery is one of the most popular lotteries in the world and you can play it from anywhere – as long as you are a citizen of Hong Kong. However – it is important to check the regulations of your home country before playing as you may have to pay taxes on any winnings from overseas lottery games.
Hong Kong Mark Six – Game Details
The Mark Six Lottery is a 6/49 lottery game that is organized by the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC). It is drawn 3 times per week and bets are accepted until approximately 15 minutes prior to the draw.
This lottery is a lot like all other jackpot style games – you select your 6 numbers out of a pool that contains 49 random numbers and you win a prize if you match all six of those numbers correctly. You can also win prizes by matching the extra number which is drawn at the end of each drawing.
Mark Six has a very large range of prize levels and you can play it with a minimum of just 1 ticket per draw. You can even choose to play a Quick Pick option where you can have your numbers randomly chosen for you by the computer or an HKJC agent.
If you win the jackpot then you can choose to take the whole sum or just a portion of it. If you win the second prize then you can choose to take that as well or not at all.
