Hong Kong Lottery Announces Record-Breaking Jackpot

Hong Kong is abuzz over a record-breaking lottery jackpot of about HK$100 million. The prize fund for the Mark Six lottery draw on Friday night is the largest in years. Thousands of hopefuls have been flocking to betting outlets run by the city’s Jockey Club. Unlike casino gambling, which is outlawed in Hong Kong, the Jockey Club has a number of legal outlets where punters can place wagers on sports and horse racing. The HK$100 million prize will be shared by three winners.

The Hongkong Lottery has a long history of providing millions in prizes to its players. The latest announcement is a big boost for the lottery game, which is popular amongst people from all walks of life. The new record prize will be a huge incentive for players to keep trying their luck. This is a good news for the lottery, but it also means that more people will be attracted to other forms of gambling, like online games and betting on sports.

In a bid to address the increasing demand for higher First Division prizes, HKJC Lotteries has adjusted the Snowball pool arrangement by increasing the reserve pool starting from 21 May 2024 (Draw no. 58). This will allow more tickets to qualify for the top prize in each Snowball draw in future.

This year’s Hongkong Lottery has been a major success with a total turnover of HK$44.509 billion, breaking the previous record of HK$232.9 million set back in 1995. It is a great achievement for the HKJC, especially given the current economic challenges. The increased number of winning tickets is also a testament to the growing popularity of this lottery game.

If no one wins the first or second prize, the money that would have gone to these prizes will be added to a jackpot (Duo Bao Jiang) in the next draw. This process continues until there is a winner, and in some cases the jackpot can reach HK$100 million or more.

A third of the total amount goes to the government, with HK$85 million in betting duties and HK$51 million going to the Hong Kong Welfare Trust. The remaining two thirds are distributed as dividends to eligible winning ticket holders.
