How to Play

In Mega Sena, there are six winning numbers from 1 to 60 in each draw. However, rather than drawing all the numbers from one machine, two machines are used to create each number. The first picks a digit between 0 and 5, and the second draws a number from 0 to 9.

The two numbers are put together to form a two-digit number, and this is done until six unique numbers between 1 and 60 have been drawn. If the number 0 is drawn from both machines, then it counts as 60.

You can take part online or by visiting an authorised retailer in Brazil, and you can choose between six and 15 numbers from 1 to 60. For each additional number picked, you are covering more possible combinations and therefore have a greater chance of winning. The cost of a ticket is R$3.50 per bet, and increases accordingly as you select more numbers.

The following table shows the price you must pay for picking six numbers, right up to 15, and the amount of combinations you will receive in return.

Mega da Virada

Mega da Virada is a special edition of Mega Sena which takes place on New Year’s Eve. Mega da Virada is able to offer a huge jackpot because five percent from every draw goes towards the prize fund. It works just like a regular draw, except that the top prize cannot roll over and has to be won on the night. If no ticket matches all six numbers, the jackpot will be shared between players matching five numbers.
