Operation of Quina de São João

Quina de São João is a special lottery competition, held annually close to June 24th, Saint John’s Day.

Therefore, unlike regular competitions, the Quina de São João prize does not accumulate. If no one matches all five numbers, the value is distributed among those who guess correctly in the next range, and so on.

Therefore, to participate, the bettor must choose between 5 and 15 numbers from the 80 available. Furthermore, it is also possible to opt for Surpresinha, where the numbers are chosen randomly by Caixa Econômica Federal.
