game format uses 6 numbers from a pool of 0-60, which in itself is
very simple. The way the numbers themselves are chosen is slightly
unusual as the Mega Sena uses two spinning spherical cages to select
the numbers. The first cage selects the balls from 0-5 and the next
from 0-9. The combination of the two pairs make up the number with a
00 selection being equivalent to a 60. Although unorthodox, the
outcome is the same.

Throughout the year, the normal Mega Sena draws will put aside 5% of their proceeds for the annual Mega da Virada. The record Mega Sena jackpot ran to £38.1 million in 2019. Unlike a Mega Sena draw, the Mega da Virada jackpot doesn't rollover. Instead, it gets passed down to the 2 nd tier prize winners.

In order to withdraw prizes over £4,000, Fatt Mountain Ltd may require that you pass additional identity checks to confirm that you are who you say you are and that you meet the One Pound Lotto minimum age requirement of 18 years old. Additional checks are at Fatt Mountain Ltd's discretion. Failure to comply may result in winnings not being paid or delayed.
All winnings across all games will have to be claimed within 60 days.
We do not believe in the practice of “annuity” (the payment of a large prize over a fixed period of roughly 30years) as many other sites do. All of our prizes will be paid in full to the winners nominated account, within 60 days of the winners being verified as a genuine winner by One Pound Lottery Ltd. However some of the official lotteries do practice annuity on their advertised jackpots. Hence we advertise our jackpots based on theirs. Currently, the only lotteries that we advertise that practice this are the US Powerball and US Megamillions. To find out more about how they work this out please read more info on the US Powerball and Megamillions pages.
