THE MEGA SENA LOTTERY
History Of Mega Sena:
|The Caixa Mega Sena lottery may be just one of many lotteries available from Brazil but it is undoubtedly the most popular. The game has changed little over the years with the exception of the original, rather clumsy number selection process for the draws.
Pairs of numbered balls were picked randomly from two spinning cages. Together the balls created a 2 digit number from 01 up to 60. The first cage contained the balls for the first digit and ranges from 0 – 5. The second cage contained the balls for the second digit and ranges from 0 – 9. When all 6 unique 2 digit numbers were drawn, the draw was finished.
Since draw No. 1140 this complex drawing process has been streamlined. The balls are now selected from a single spinning globe. Each segment of 10 balls is coloured differently from the rest, with a total of 6 colours across all the balls.
How To Play Mega Sena:
Number selection for the Mega Sena is very simply. Players simply need to select 6 unique numbers out of a possible 60. If a player matches all their 6 chosen numbers to the numbers drawn they win the jackpot.
Mega Sena Jackpots And Mega Da Virada:
The Caixa Mega Sena lottery has a starting minimum jackpot of R$2 million (about $900,000 USD). The jackpot has grown to sizeable amounts before and undoubtedly will do so again. The current record jackpot paid out is R$145million won in 2009. This hefty jackpot was won in 2009 by two lucky ticket holders, one from Brasilia and the other from São Paulo. Other giant jackpots paid out include R$ 64.9 million (1999), R$52.8 million (2007) and R$53.1 million (2008).
The Mega Sena also offers a very special annual draw every New Years Eve. This draw is known as the Mega Da Virada and offers a massive jackpot, for example the 2010 jackpot was R$194.3 million. This jackpot is made up from a percentage of every prize fund from each draw throughout the year. You can play this special annual draw on PlayHugeLottos.com every December.
When To Play Mega Sena:
This exciting Brazilian lottery is drawn twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 8pm Local Time (UTC -3). The draw itself is held in a truck that travels all over Brazil in a different city for every draw.
