How to Play the Hong Kong Lottery

The hongkong lottery is run by the Hong Kong Jockey Club, an organization that is best known for horse racing in the region. It was first launched in September of 1975 as a legal way to win a large amount of money. The game’s popularity is due to its large jackpots and the fact that it is a legal way to gain wealth in a city where living costs are high and home ownership is out of reach for many residents.

The game itself is simple enough, players choose six numbers out of 49 to try to win the jackpot. The winnings are paid out in a tax-free lump sum and can be claimed 60 days after the draw. Ticket sales are conducted at HKJC outlets and online. If you’re unsure of which numbers to select then you can use a quick pick option or a Smart Pick that will randomly generate numbers for you.

The hongkong lottery has seven prize levels, including a massive first prize of up to HK$100 million. The odds of winning are one in 13,983,816.
