The Mark Six Lottery is a traditional jackpot style lotto game which is
incredibly popular amongst the people of Hong Kong. It was first launched back in 1975 and is a standard part of everyday life in Hong Kong with a large number of the population regularly playing.
The Hong Kong Mark Six is administered by the HKJC Lotteries Ltd., which is a subsidiary of the famous Hong Kong Jockey Club.
Throughout the year the Hong Kong Jockey Club will hold special Mark Six “Snowball Draws” in addition to its thrice weekly draws.
These drawings have bigger jackpots and are normally held on special occasions such as public holidays or during festivals like the Mid-Autumn Snowball Draws, Chinese New Year Snowball Draws, Easter Snowball Draws, Summer Snowball Draws plus Christmas Snowball Draws attracting a lot of participation.
For each of these special Mark 6 draws – a certain percentage of the overall spend on the Hong Kong Lotto is taken and put into a Snowball Pool. This money is then added to the jackpot fund for that particular draw thus increasing the jackpot even further.
These Mark Six Snowball Draws are naturally, incredibly popular due to the incredibly large jackpot figures that are always offered.
Draws for the HKJC Mark Six take place 3 times every week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at approximately 10.00pm.
