The world of lotteries is buzzing with the next Mega-Sena draw. Competition 2,714, which takes place at 8pm this Thursday (18th), in São Paulo, promises a prize of R$72 million for whoever gets all six numbers right.

Last Tuesday (16), no player won the maximum prize, which increases expectations for the next draw. The minimum bet on Mega-Sena costs R$5 and can be placed until 7pm, including online.

What are the chances of winning in Mega-Sena

Mega-Sena holds three weekly draws: on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. So, if you are interested in trying your luck, place your bet by 7pm (Brasília time) on the day of the draw.
