THE Caixa Econômica Federal holds, this Wednesday (25), the draw for the Mega-Sena contest 2,558. The prize is accumulated and estimated at R$ 63 million for those who match the six numbers drawn.
The previous contest – 2557 – had accumulated R$51 million and had no winning bet. There are still no Mega-Sena main prize winners in 2023.
According to the bank, 261 bets hit the fifth and won R$ 20,176.41 each. Another 16,523 bets matched four numbers and took R$ 455.29 each.
The draw will take place at 20:00 (Brasília time), with a live transmission by Caixa’s social networks.
To compete, players can register their games up to one hour before the draw, at 7 pm, at any lottery shop accredited by Caixa or via the bank’s website or application. The single ticket, with six numbers marked, costs R$ 4.50.
For games made on the Caixa website, the minimum amount to bet on the Mega-Sena is R$30, whether for a single bet or more than one.
To make a bigger bet, with seven numbers, the price rises to R$ 31.50, according to Caixa.
Another option to reach the minimum price is to place seven single bets, which together have the same value, R$ 31.50. In addition, sweepstakes, available online, are another option.
One way to bet on the Mega-Sena, in addition to individual games, is to form a group to choose the numbers, the so-called Bolão.
When registered in the system, the bet generates a quota receipt for each participant, who can redeem their share of the prize individually.
The pools have a minimum value of R$ 10 and each share must be at least R$ 5, and it is possible to make a pool of at least two and a maximum of 100 shares.
The gambler can also acquire shares of pools organized by the lottery. Just ask the attendant for the number of shares you want and keep the receipt to check the bet on the day of the draw.
In this case, an additional service fee of up to 35% of the quota value may be charged, at the lottery’s discretion.
The gross prize corresponds to 43.35% of the collection. Of this percentage:
- 35% are distributed among the winners of the 6 numbers drawn (Sena);
- 19% among 5-number matchers (Quina);
- 19% among 4-number matchers (Quadra);
- 22% are accumulated and distributed to those who match the 6 numbers in the contests ending in 0 or 5.
- 5% are accumulated for the first bracket – sena – of the last contest of the year ending 0 or 5 (Mega da Virada).
If there are no winners in any bracket, the value accumulates for the next contest, in the respective award bracket.
Prizes expire 90 days after the draw date. After this period, the amounts are transferred to the national treasury for investment in the Higher Education Student Financing Fund (Fies).
