Comprehensive IT operation to strengthen system resilience

16/08/2021 01:16

The Hong Kong Jockey Club (the Club) will carry out a comprehensive IT operation commencing midnight tonight to follow up on the network equipment failure incident on 13 August 2021 for the strengthening of the resilience of the IT system.

There will be two short periods during which betting and funds transfer services at all channels will be temporarily affected, from 3:50 am to 8:00 am on 16 August and 4:00 am to 4:00 pm on 17 August, respectively.

The exercise will be completed in the early afternoon of Tuesday 17 August resulting in a delay offering of betting services at all channels until 4:00 pm on that day. The business hour of Off-Course Betting Branches (OCBBs) will also start from 4:00 pm. In order to ensure that our customers are provided with sufficient time to purchase the tickets of the upcoming Mark Six draw which carries a $43 million jackpot, the Club has decided to postpone the next Mark Six draw from Tuesday 17 August to Thursday 19 August.

We would like to extend our sincerest apologies to our customers for the inconvenience being caused and seek their understanding and support.
