Odds of winning the Mega-Sena

Easter duo

Exclusive bets for the Easter Duo continue to be held at lottery houses and on the internet. The draw will take place next Saturday, 8th, at 8 pm, with a live broadcast on the Caixa channel on YouTube and on the Caixa Loterias Facebook page. According to Agência Brasil, the estimated prize is R$ 35 million.

As always happens in special contests promoted by Loterias Caixa, the Easter Duo does not accumulate. If no bettor matches the numbers in the main bracket, the prize will be divided among the winners of the corner in the first draw, and so on.
