Mega Sena

Mega Sena Lottery

Mega Sena is Brazil’s biggest lottery, raising huge amounts of money every year for educational projects and providing players with huge jackpots too.

How to Play the Mega Sena Lottery

Draws take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, with six numbers drawn from 1 to 60. If players don't wish to choose their own numbers, they can get a Surpresinha - a random selection generated by the computer.

The Mega Sena jackpot, worth millions of Brazilian reais, is won by matching all six numbers drawn, with prizes also awarded for matching four or five numbers. Players can choose up to 15 numbers on their tickets, with odds shortening but the stake rising with every additional number chosen over six.

Mega Sena Super Draw

A portion of the ticket revenue from each draw is held back to contribute to a Mega Sena super draw on the 31st December called Mega da Virada, which offers a huge prize pot that adds a little more spice to the already flamboyant Brazilian New Year celebrations.
