Macau: warnings over fake Mark Six lotto

The DICJ says online casinos and websites are scamming people with a fake local version of the popular lotto run by the HKJC. 

Macau.- The Macau Gaming Inspection and Co-ordination Bureau (DICJ) has issued a warning about a fake online version of Hong Kong’s popular Mark Six lottery.

The real Mark Six lottery is operated by the Hong Kong Jockey Club  and one of the few legal forms of gambling allowed in the territory.

The DICJ denied it had given any local operator approval to run the Mark Six lottery in Macau. It said the Judiciary Police was investigating the issue and called on anyone scammed by the offer to report it.   

The bureau said in a statement in Portuguese: “The DICJ clarifies that it has not authorised the exploitation of the game Macau Mark Six and appeals to citizens to be aware of online gaming scams.

“Any online casinos operating under a Macau name, or any website where someone exploits a game called Macau Mark Six is false and illegal.”
