About the Mega da Virada
Mega-Sena awards millions of reais to the player who matches the six drawn numbers. You can still win prizes by guessing four or five dozen out of the 60 available on the betting wheel.
To compete, the player must mark from six to 15 numbers, and may even let the system choose the numbers (Surpresinha) and/or compete with the same bet for 2, 4 or 8 consecutive contests (Teimosinha).
The more dozens you score, the higher the stake and the greater the chances of winning the most coveted prize in the country. Mega-Sena draws take place twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
In 2021, Mega da Virada paid the record amount of R$378 million. The prize was awarded to two bets, one single and the other on a 14 odds pot. The amount of the collection was also expressive; according to Caixa Econômica Federal, it exceeded R$ 1.5 billion.
