Minimum play one line and maximum play seven lines
Overview: The Mega-Sena is the largest lottery in Brazil, held by the Caixa Econômica Federal bank. It has two draws a week , one on Wednesdays and one on Saturdays. The Wednesday draw is televised (with a 25-minute delay) on RedeTV .
The game takes a “6 numbers from 0-60” format, which in itself is very simple. The way the numbers them self are chosen is slightly unusual as the Mega-Sena uses two spinning spherical cages to select the numbers. The first selecting numbers from 0-5 and the next from 0-9. The two pairs combined make up the number and a 00 selection is equivalent to a 60. Although unorthodox, the outcome is the same.
Although the Mega-Sena is hugely popular in South America , once a year ( on New Years Eve) they run a special jackpot (using the same format) called the Mega da Virada The drawing is extremely popular among Brazilians because of its large jackpot. Regular Mega-Sena draws throughout the year put aside 5% of the proceeds for Mega da Virada. The record Mega-Sena jackpot ran to £67million in 2014. Unlike a regular draw, the Mega da Virada jackpot doesn't rollover , It instead goes to people who scored 5 numbers.
Much of the revenue from the Mega-Sena is given to the National Treasury who in turn invest in educational programs and other good causes in Brazil.

We do not believe in the practice of “annuity” (the payment of a large prizes 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 Fatt Mountain 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 lottery that we advertise that does this is the US Powerball. To find out more about how they work this out please read the US Powerball Annuity information.
