Hong Kong mark six lottery is a popular game that allows players to choose and select their own numbers. It is regulated and offers a large jackpot prize. The lottery is run by the Hong Kong Jockey Club, an organization known for horse racing and authorized to operate the lottery alongside its primary business. The first prize in the lottery is usually around HK$8 million but can go as high as HK$100 million on special draws known as “Snowball Draws.”
While there are plenty of people who enjoy playing the lottery, some critics warn that it may encourage gambling addiction by emphasizing the size of the jackpot. They also argue that the lottery may promote irresponsible betting by not only promoting large jackpot prizes but by encouraging people to gamble even when they are not sure whether they will win or lose. John Tse Wing-ling, an associate professor of the City University of Hong Kong’s Department of Applied Social Studies, says that responsible betting organizations should refrain from highlighting the size of the jackpot as this may encourage people to bet excessively and become pathological gamblers.
