If you want to increase your chances, you can add more numbers to your game. Each additional number costs R$5, increasing the total price of the bet. For example, a bet with seven numbers would cost R$10, and so on.

It is important to register your bet by 7pm on the day of the draw for it to be valid. The minimum bet, with six numbers, costs R$5.

Mega-Sena Pool

It’s a smart strategy for those who want to increase their chances of winning without spending a lot.
