In the recent Mega Millions draw in the United States, an incredible prize of US$525 million (about R$2.6 billion) was at stake.

Despite expectations, the numbers drawn – 5, 45, 55, 58, 68, 7 – did not match any ticket with the winning combination of six numbers.

And the next opportunity to become a millionaire is close, with the draw scheduled for Friday (23).

Is it possible to play Mega Millions while in Brazil?

Yes, it is completely legal to participate in Mega Millions while in Brazil. United States laws do not impose restrictions on the distribution of American lottery prizes to foreigners, which means that all Brazilians have the right to play online, even if they are in Brazil, and can buy tickets through an online platform.

Lotteries in Brazil with big prizes

In Brazil, Caixa Econômica Federal lotteries offer great opportunities to become a millionaire, even if the prizes are not as high as those in the United States.

Still, you can compete for great prizes. This week, Lotofácil announced that the next draw will have a prize estimated at R$4 million.

+Milionária is another great opportunity to change your life, as the prize has accumulated again and reaches R$ 144 million with a draw next Saturday, February 24th.

Lotomania also accumulated and therefore the next draw will have a prize estimated at R$ 1.7 million.

In the Timemania lottery, the prize reached R$15.1 million. In Dupla Sena, the next prize is around R$5.5 million.

While in Super Sete, the prize reaches a total of R$1.15 million and on Dia da Sorte a jackpot estimated at R$500 thousand.

However, it is worth remembering that Mega-Sena can award up to R$97 million in this Thursday’s draw.
