Minimum bets and dividends


All bets are in HK$10 units. A HK$5 unit is accepted for multiple bets of Trio, Tierce, First 4 and Double Trio, provided the total ticket value is greater than HK$100. A HK$2 ticket is accepted for multiple Triple Trio and Six up bets, provided the total ticket value is greater than HK$100. All dividends are semaphored for a full HK$10 ticket. A win dividend of HK$90 means a return of eight times your HK$10 investment, plus that HK$10 stake returned in full. On the tote indicator boards, dividends are expressed as multiples of HK$1, although some TV monitors show them for the full HK$10.
