The New Year is just around the corner. Racing fans can get 2018 off to a galloping start by attending the “Lucky Start January 1 Raceday” at Sha Tin Racecourse. And with a total of $80 million up for grabs in racing, football and Mark Six jackpots during the first two days of 2018, there is plenty to cheer about.
Mega-jackpots worth $80 million
Race fans everywhere will benefit from “Lucky Start” top-ups on 1 January. For the Triple Trio the payout for a single $10 winning unit is expected to reach $17 million. Meanwhile, the Quartet & First 4 Merged Pool for Race 7 and Race 11 will be topped up with $1 million each. In addition, the jackpot for HKJC Football’s “New Year 6 HaFu Jackpot” pool will be topped up to a total of $1 million on 1 January, while the estimated First Division Prize Fund for the Mark Six New Year Snowball Draw, held on 2 January, may reach $60 million. Together these special jackpot prizes add up to $80 million to celebrate the New Year.
Lucky Keychain for free upon admission
On New Year’s Day, the good fortune will start immediately with all racegoers receiving a Lucky Keychain on admission to the racecourse, until the start of Race 6, or while stocks last.
Celebrities play mini-games with racegoers
Adding to the excitement, our “Lucky Stars”, TV celebrities Eliza Sam and Tyson Chak, will move around Sha Tin Racecourse, playing mini-games with racegoers and distributing fabulous gifts.
In addition, racegoers can join the game booths at Concourse to win some souvenirs for a lucky start at 2018. Also, a photo corner at 1/F Grandstand II and roving mascots will be available for photo opportunities.
