The lotteries watchdog has warned the Jockey Club may be misleading the public about the likelihood of winning the Mark Six jackpot. The Football Betting and Lotteries Commission said it was seriously concerned about a recent club press release citing the experiences of a Mark Six winner. 'It seemed to imply there might be strategies in choosing the winning numbers for Mark Six. [It] mentioned that selecting Mark Six numbers in certain ways could be a means to becoming a 'multimillionaire'. It might also suggest that participation in lottery could be a source of earning income,' the commission said after its meeting last night. The watchdog has requested the government ask the club to review the case and exercise more caution in promoting Mark Six. In response, the club said the press release tried only to describe a Mark Six winner's experience and did not say there were certain strategies for winning. The commission is also concerned about the club allowing the placing of bets on the outcome of a soccer match after it has begun, saying it might encourage punters to place bets in a continuous and irrational manner. The Home Affairs Bureau said it would consider carefully the commission's views and convey its concerns to the Jockey Club.
