The probability of winning in Mega-Sena varies according to the number of tens played. Thus, for the simple bet, which is the minimum bet with six tens and costs R$5, the probability of winning the millionaire prize is 1 in 50,063,860.

In other words, this means that, as a percentage, the probability is approximately 0.000002%. But as the choice of numbers grows, the probability of winning and the price of the bet also increase.

So, for example, for a bet with 15 tens (maximum limit), with a price of R$22,522.50, the probability of hitting the prize is 1 in 10,003. It’s worth remembering that whoever matches 5 or 4 numbers also wins a prize.

Therefore, choosing the lucky numbers to play the lottery can be a fun and personal process. But remember, the lottery is a game and there is no guarantee of winning.

So, regardless of the numbers you choose, the most important thing is to have fun and play responsibly. Good luck!
