The hongkong lottery is a traditional jackpot style lotto game that was launched back in 1975. It is a very popular game in Hong Kong and is a part of everyday life for the people who live there. The lottery is operated by the HKJC and it is possible to win a big jackpot if you manage to pick the right numbers. The game is a 6/49 type of lottery and there are also extra prizes for matching the bonus ball as well.
If nobody wins the first or second prize, that money is added to the jackpot for the next draw. This continues until someone manages to win the top prize of HKD$100 million. There is also a special “Snowball Pool” that’s added to the jackpot on certain draws.
The lottery is a very important source of income for the government of hongkong. It contributes to a large number of projects and initiatives in the areas of sports and healthy living, education and employment, opportunities for entertainment and games, the cultivation of culture and art as well as helping and volunteering. In addition, the HKJC has one of the most generous charitable donation programs in the world with over HK$ 1 Billion sent to community projects and charities every year.
If you are planning to visit Hong Kong, then you should make sure that you enter the free flight ticket lottery as soon as it opens up for registration. This will ensure that you have the best chances of winning the tickets. The free flights will be released in phases, with the initial batch being made available to Southeast Asian residents on March 1. The rest of the world will be able to apply for the tickets starting on May 1.
