Although the main prize did not go to anyone, other bets were awarded with 5 matches (76 winning bets receiving BRL 38,151.92 each) and 4 matches (4,995 winning bets pocketing BRL 829.27 each).

The next draw of this type of lottery will be on Thursday, 11.

How to bet on the Mega-Sena?

Bets must be placed by 7 pm (Brasília time), at any lottery agency in Brazil or via the internet, on the Caixa Econômica Federal website – accessible by cell phone, computer or other devices. You must register, be of legal age (18 years or older) and enter your credit card number.

The Mega-Sena pays millions to the person matching the 6 numbers drawn. It is still possible to win prizes by matching 4 or 5 numbers out of the 60 available on the betting ticket.

To make your dream of becoming a millionaire come true, you must mark 6 to 20 numbers on the ticket, allowing the system to choose the numbers for you (Surpresinha) and/or compete with the same bet for 2, 4 or 8 consecutive contests (Teimosinha ).

Draws are held twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. To adjust the number of the Mega da Virada contest, which must end in 0 or 5, the Mega-Weeks were created, which are exclusive to the Mega-Sena. Draws take place on predetermined dates throughout the year. There are three contests per week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.


The probability of winning in each contest changes according to the number of dozens played and the type of bet placed. For the simple bet (with only six tens), which costs R$ 5, the probability of winning the millionaire prize is 1 in 50,063,860, according to Caixa Econômica Federal.

As for a bet with 15 dozens (maximum limit), with the value of BRL 22,522.50, the probability of hitting the prize is 1 in 10,003, still according to Caixa.
