What are the chances of winning the Mega-Sena?
Mega-Sena’s high values are not limited to the prize amount; they also extend when it comes to probability.
Those who opt for the minimum bet, selecting six numbers, face a 1 in 50,063,860 chance of becoming a millionaire.
This number is reduced to 1 in 7,151,980 in the case of a bet with seven numbers.
For players who choose the maximum bet, with 15 numbers – the most expensive of all types of this lottery game –, there will be a chance in 10,003 of matching the six numbers drawn.
According to statistics released by Caixa, bets with eight numbers represent a chance of 1 in 1,787,995.
Bets with nine numbers have a probability of 1 in 595,998.
Anyone placing a bet on ten numbers will have a 1 in 238,399 chance of winning the prize. An 11-number bet, on the other hand, increases the odds of success to 1 in 108,363 – which provides even more opportunities to win.
While bets with 12 numbers have a probability of 1 in 54,182.
Betting with 13 numbers raises the odds to 1 in 29,175; and a bet with 14 numbers brings a chance of 1 in 16,671.
