Any Brazilian who bets on the lottery has dreamed of playing the right tens, making thousands of plans with the millions that would fall into his bank account.

The request to resign from work to focus on a more luxurious lifestyle, the purchase of a gigantic mansion, the new car, financial security, that long-dreamed trip, gifts for the children, etc.

Some gamblers dream of packing up with the millions transferred to a bank account and starting a world tour with no end date. In the last edition of Mega da Virada, the jackpot that motivated the wishes of millions of Brazilians reached the mark of 325 million reais.

Two lucky ones just guessed the numbers and managed the feat of dividing the prize pool into equal parts of 162.6 million each. One of the winners, from Aracaju (SE), rushed to claim the prize at a Caixa Econômica agency in January, a few days after the special lottery draw.

Lottery winner has until 31 to request millionaire prize

However, the other winner, so far, has not emerged to withdraw his money and, if he does not appear at the bank until next Wednesday, March 31, he will lose this jackpot. This is because the lottery prizes need to be requested within a period of up to three months by their winners in the national territory.

But, what happens when the prize is not claimed? When the prize of any lottery draw is not redeemed by the lucky person, the amount is fully allocated to the Student Financing Fund (FIES).

But, the good news is that this bettor still has a few days to show up! So, those who bet on São Paulo at Mega da Virada and still have the ticket can give one more check. The numbers drawn were: 17 – 20 – 22 – 35 – 41 – 42.
