The jackpot can also be increased by a random amount added by Snowball Pool, a special feature that is added during some specific holidays or festivals.
The Hong Kong lottery was first introduced in 1993. It helps to raise funds for education, and half of the proceeds go to reducing the class size ratio for children in the early grades. The money also helps to repair public schools, which can improve the quality of education and reduce safety hazards.
