The Mega da Virada – a special Mega-Sena draw number 2,550 with an estimated prize pool of BRL 450 million – already allows betting from this Wednesday, November 16th. According to Caixa, this will be the biggest prize in the history of Caixa Lotteries. Bets can be placed in any lottery house accredited by Caixa, throughout the country or over the internet.

As in other special contests, the value of the prize will not be accumulated, that is, if there are no winners who match six numbers, the amount will be divided among those who match five numbers, and so on.

For those who want to try their luck at Mega da Virada, just dial six to 20 numbers out of the 60 available. The bettor still has an option to let the system choose the numbers through Surpresinha. The value of the single bet, with six tens marked, costs R$ 4.50.

Bolão Caixa – increasing the chances of winning in Mega da Virada

In addition, it is possible to increase your chances by making group bets through Bolão Caixa, one of the most common ways to make a guess together. For this, it is necessary to fill in the appropriate field on the ticket or ask the lottery attendant.

The syndicates have a minimum price of R$ 10 in the Mega-Sena. However, each share cannot be less than R$5. It is possible to make a pool of at least two and a maximum of 100 shares. It is also possible to purchase shares of sweepstakes organized by the lotteries. In this case, an additional service fee of up to 35% of the quota value may be charged.

A curiosity reported by Caixa: if only one player wins the Mega da Virada prize and invests the entire amount in savings, he will receive R$ 2.7 million in the first month, having an extremely significant passive income.
