Lottery Hongkong is just one of the many ways that people in Hong Kong try to improve their lives. Thousands of residents have been able to win money by betting on the Mark Six lottery, horse racing, football matches, and other games. But it’s important to understand the odds involved before making any bets. You are far more likely to be struck by lightning than you are to win the Powerball lottery, for example.
Hong Kong’s Customs and Excise Department recently intercepted a river vessel and seized around 16,000 Mark Six tickets that were meant to be smuggled into China and Macau. These tickets had a face value of about HK$20,000 each. The Jockey Club verified them and found that 600 of them were already redeemable for prizes totaling HK$70,000.
This game works just like any other lottery, in that players pick a combination of numbers from one to 49. The winning numbers are then drawn three times a week, and announced on TV, radio, and the Hong Kong Mark Six website. The jackpot prize is automatically transferred to the winners’ wallets via a VEROS transaction on the Ethereum blockchain.
If you want to get in on the action, you’ll need to register with a Cathay Pacific account and be an adult tourist who will visit Hong Kong for 90 days or less. The free flight tickets will be given away in three waves, starting March 1 for travelers from Southeast Asia, April 1 for travelers from mainland China, and May 1 for residents worldwide.
