So what exactly is the Mega-Sena Lottery?
It was back in 1996 that Lotto Brazil was launched and they called it the Mega-Sena lottery and it wasn’t long before it became the most popular lottery game throughout Brazil. It is operated and controlled by one of Brazil’s biggest banking organisations, the Caixa Econômica Federal and it allows lotto players two chances each and every week to become millionaires.
At times, the Mega-Sena jackpot has grown to nine figures with its biggest ever jackpot prize being R$263.2 million which was close to US$50 million. It was divided equally between three lucky players as part of the Mega da Virada draw in December 2014.
The highest Mega-Sena jackpot prize that was won by a single player in November 2015 was R$205.3 million which equated to approximately US$36 million.
When the National Lottery in Brazil was launched, it had a rather complicated system for the draws which consisted of two spinning cages from which to draw the balls. It’s a lot easier these days as they now draw the balls randomly from just one spinning globe.
They use ten balls that are different colours from the other balls and use a total of six colours across all balls used. To play Mega-Sena lottery, players need to pick six numbers from sixty to win. If a player correctly matches all six numbers they will win the Mega-Sena jackpot.
Once you buy Mega-Sena tickets, the minimum starting jackpot is R$2 million and if the Mega-Sena jackpot isn’t won, it continues to grow as it rolls over and includes the special draws.
