Briefs | Gambling regulator denies approving Macau Mark Six


The Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) has clarified that it has not approved the operations of the so-called lottery, the Macau Mark Six, by any person or entity. The name resembles the lottery operated in Hong Kong by the neighboring city’s Jockey Club, which has been suspended since an earlier Covid-19 outbreak in Hong Kong. There are at least 10 online platforms claiming to be operating the “Macau lottery.” Apart from the DICJ’s clarification, the Judiciary Police has also intervened and commenced investigation of the false claim. Should anybody believe that they have fallen victim to the lottery scam, they should report to the police immediately, authorities said.
