Mark Six is the only legal lottery in Hong Kong, and it is also one of the few gambling permitted by the Hong Kong government.
The Mark Six lottery is currently HK$10 per bet, and you can purchase a “half bet” of HK$5. There are three ways to sell Mark Six: betting shops, telephone betting and betting through designated mobile apps.
It will be held on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays or Sundays other than Hong Kong race days.
However, Mark Six is illegal in mainland China. The Hong Kong government stipulates that people under the age of 18 are not allowed to place bets. Non-Hong Kong residents can also bet on the Mark Six lottery in Hong Kong, but not overseas.
