Bettors from all over Brazil are excited for Quina de São João 2024, which offers a prize estimated at an incredible R$220 million. Caixa Econômica Federal opened bets today for the special contest, which will take place on June 22nd and does not accumulate.

Quina de São João follows the style of other famous lotteries, such as Mega da Virada and Lotofácil da Independência. So, if you want to try your luck, you can place your bet by marking five tens of the 80 available.

How to place your bet on Quina de São João

To participate, simply place a simple bet by marking five tens of the 80 available. The bet value is R$2.50, and it must be placed on a specific steering wheel. Quina’s regular competitions will continue to be drawn until June 8th.

This will be the 14th Quina de São João contest, and the prize of R$220 million (which may increase) will be the largest in the history of this lottery.

Until then, the biggest prize paid had been in 2021, when eight bets reached five tens and divided R$204.8 million. In 2022, 11 bets raised R$195.9 million, creating more than 65 new millionaires.

Therefore, bets can be placed until 7pm on the day of the draw at any lottery outlet in the country, on the Loterias Caixa app (Android/iOS) or on the Loterias Caixa portal.

If you prefer, you can let the system choose the numbers through Surpresinha. If you match 2, 3, 4 or 5 numbers, you can receive prizes.

Official prizes

If you opt for a simple bet on Quina de São João, scoring 5 tens, your chance of success is 1 in 24 million (24,040,016, to be precise). So, “easier” than the famous Mega-Sena.

So, if you want to increase your chances, you can score up to 15 tens of the 80 available. However, although it increases your chances of winning, betting with 15 numbers costs R$7,507.50.

This way, from this Monday (20th), you can make prizes on the Loterias Caixa website. The bank promises to make the pools available on the app soon.

But at Quina, the pools have a minimum price of R$12.50, and each share cannot be less than R$3.50. Therefore, it is possible to create a pool of at least 2 and a maximum of 50 odds, with a limit of 10 bets per pool.

Additionally, you can buy shares of pools organized by Casas Lotéricas, but be aware of the additional Service Fee, which can reach up to 35% of the share value.
