You can win a large amount of money playing the HK lottery. One lucky player has the chance of winning HK$133,979,675 (about US $1.03 million) and six prize tiers have much better odds of winning, but the jackpot is usually worth much less than this amount. This lottery is played every week and offers an incredible chance to win money. Here are some ways to increase your odds of winning big!
Last September, the HK$164,492,500 Hong Kong lotto jackpot was won by three people. The previous jackpot was HK$113,277,528 and was rolled over from September 2012, when it was HK$123,979,675. The fourth mega draw was held in May 2011, and a betting shop in Mable Street in North Point was tipped to sell the lucky tickets. Two of the winning tickets were bought there.
A man purchased 10 computer tickets, each costing HK$200, and said he would spend half the prize on a flat. He even said he would consider not telling his family if he won, since he already owned a flat. A 23-year-old Filipino kitchen worker didn’t know anything about the special draw, so he queued outside a restaurant, and his colleagues sent him to pick the tickets.
The jackpot for the September 2014 mega draw reached HK$164,492,500 (US$102,952,549). The rollover in September 2012 reached $123,979,675 and the fourth mega draw was in May 2011. A betting shop in North Point was tipped to be the source of the lucky tickets. The same betting shop also sold two first-prize winning tickets in the previous four mega draws.
