The Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) will resume sales of Mark Six lottery tickets from October 16 at its Off-Course Betting Branches (OCBBs) after carefully reviewing the operation and order of the locations.

Steps have been taken by the HKJC to make its customers’ gambling experience as safe as possible during the pandemic.

Apart from purchasing lottery tickets at counters, customers may set up HKJC ewallets at any OCBBs to purchase etickets by scanning the ewallet QR code at self-vending betting terminals for a fast and convenient cashless experience.

As the lottery tickets are stored in the ewallets, prizes will be automatically credited to the ewallet without additional queuing or registration.

Customers are required to receive temperature screening before entering OCBBs and they must also wear face masks. Hand sanitisers are provided at the branch entrances and exits and special measures continue to be implemented at the OCBBs to ensure appropriate social distancing.

HKJC staff and customers are required to observe the social distancing and group gathering restrictions as promulgated by the HKSAR Government during their stay in the OCBBs. Customers must also leave the OCBBs after using branch services.
