The lottery’s origins are a long story. It all started with a man named Thien Su. He was working in a restaurant in Tai Sang, China, and had met his female friend through a waitress. After he got the permission from the government, he set up a lottery in Hong Kong. He was able to sell 1.71 million tickets in a matter of two weeks.
The government believes a smuggling ring was sending lottery tickets to mainland China. The lottery’s top prize went up to HK$24 million. To win the first prize, a ticket must match all six numbers drawn. Previously, the minimum jackpot prize was HK$8 million.
