Mega Sena Review
About Mega Sena
If you ask any South American what’s the most popular lottery on their continent, the answer would probably be Mega Sena. And if they give you a different answer, that just means they are not much of a lottery player.
The famous and well known lottery Mega Sena surpassed the borders of its native Brazil a while ago, and is slowly gaining popularity across the world, which is also one of the reasons why we decided to get you acquainted with it.
Its jackpots are not as big as some of the American ones, of course, but that doesn’t mean Mega Sena doesn’t have anything to offer. On the contrary.
Chances of Winning
The reason for its popularity lies in a lot of factors. Besides winning some easy money, the odds of winning the jackpot are super good: 1 in 50.063.860, while the odds of winning any prize (and there are three of them) stand at 1 in 2298.
When is the Draw
Also, you can play Mega Sena lottery twice a week, every Wednesday and Saturday, and the starting jackpot in the game is R$2 million (Brazilian Real) or about 540 thousand in American dollars. However, there are no rollovers or cap in this jackpot, so those numbers get much bigger very fast.
And there’s a proof for that: the biggest Mega Sena jackpot ever won was R$263.2 million (more than 70 million American dollars!).
How to Play
To play the Brazilian lotto you will need to pick six numbers out of 60 to enter the game. You can also choose up to 15 numbers, which of course increases the cost of the ticket, but also drastically increases your odds of winning - Playing 15 numbers, enters you into the draw with exactly 5005 combinations.
The price of the basic six number line is three US dollars.
But, that’s not even all of it: Mega Sena has one more, super popular game, called Mega De Virada, which takes place every New Year’s Eve.
Brazilians love it so much because it has even bigger jackpots than Mega Sena (the biggest one won was 78 million dollars), and the fact that if the jackpot numbers aren’t drawn, the prize is still won – split between players from the next prize tier.
