PUNTERS rich and poor, young and old scrambled for Mark Six tickets in the hope of laying down $20 and collecting the $30 million jackpot on the lottery's 20th birthday yesterday. Wong Yuk, 40, dreamed of whisking his family off for an around-the-world holiday if he scored a big win - although it was tempting to buy a car or a house. 'But you can't get a decent house nowadays with just $20 million,' he said. The father of two - buying tickets for the first time - also pledged to splash out on sweets and toys for his son and daughter. Yu Wai-yee, 27, said she would sink her winnings into a businesses. She had won small amounts such as $100 or $50, and pined for the old days when fewer balls were used. 'You get a better chance. I prefer easy, frequent little prizes to a more difficult once-and-for-all jackpot,' said the property broker. Martin Wong Wai-hong, 30, lashes out whenever Mark Six has special jackpots and vowed to share any money with his family. Mr Wong was confident of a win last night - although he has never had a win in six years. He bought tickets worth $180, relying on the Cantonese number 18 which sounds like 'must be rich'. Lee Wah-sang, 75, said he would tell his wife immediately if he won the jackpot. He yearned for a holiday with his family. The air-conditioning shop owner had already travelled widely and figured it was time to see Africa. Tam Lap-chi, 23, offered to treat his family and friends to a meal if he won. Then he would take a break and set off on a trip to anywhere. Kwok Shue-hing, 47, had bought Mark Six for 20 years but only managed a few $50 and $100 prizes. Sliding $100 over the counter, he confessed to buying more 'for fun'.
