Mega-Sena Introduction



The Mega-Sena is the largest lottery in South America. It was founded in Brazil in 1996 and its popularity has since spread around the world.




The Mega-Sena is unique among national lotteries both in the way it is played (more on that in our How to Play section) and in the way the prize pool is structured. 5% of the prize fund is held back during every draw and this is then used to fund a draw known as the Mega de Virada. This is an annual draw that takes place on New Year’s Eve and offers players huge cash prizes and an inflated prize pool. Mega-Sena



How to Play Mega-Sena



Mega-Sena is traditionally played with between 6 and 15 numbers. Players can choose as few or as many as they want, but for every additional number after 6 they are required to purchase extra tickets and if they want to play all 15 they are required to purchase 5,005 tickets. The majority of players choose to play 6 numbers, which requires 1 line, and this is also the format adopted by most online lottery portals.




Jackpots and Records



The largest Mega-Sena jackpot was R$205 million and was won by a single ticket holder in November 2015. This equates to around $50 million in USD. A year previous, during a Mega de Virada draw, a jackpot of R$263 million was won and shared between four ticket holders.




There is a minimum jackpot of R$2 million in this lottery, which works out at around $500,000 USD, or €460,000, depending on the exchange rate at the time.




Winning Odds of Mega-Sena



To play Mega-Sena on Multilotto, you just need to choose 6 numbers like you would any other lottery, and 1 ticket will grant you 1 game. The numbers run from 1 to 60 and cost £1.50 per play.




There are three prize tiers in the Mega-Sena and players need to get at least 4 out of 6 numbers in order to win the lowest of these. This returns odds of 1 in 2,332, while the jackpot returns odds of 1 in 50,063,860 (just over 1 in 50 million).
