Only a week after being introduced on our website, Brazil’s most exciting lottery Mega-Sena already has a new jackpot winner. In the drawing held on October 21st, one mystery player matched all the winning numbers and scooped approximately $12.000.000. Follow in his footsteps this Wednesday night – play now to snatch $5.900. 000!
The numbers drawn on October 21st were 8, 15, 29, 35, 45 and 54. They were all matched by a single player who is yet to come forward and claim the impressive $12.154.000 jackpot. The top prize winner isn’t the only one who came off victorious last Wednesday night – another 149 players managed to match the five winning numbers collecting almost $8.000 each. In Mega-Sena drawings balls are picked from two separate drums – the first one containing numbers from 0 to 5, and the second from 0 to 9. The 6 winning numbers are drawn in pairs, with one digit selected from each drum to form a 2 digit number between 1 and 60. The prizes are granted to all players who match 4, 5 or 6 out of 60 numbers.
The largest jackpot in Mega-Sena’s history was won all the way back in 1999 when a player from Salvador managed to scoop approximately $16.700.000. No one was lucky enough to break that record in regular drawings, but the chance for collecting larger prizes is offered every year in Mega da Virada. These special drawings are held each year on New Year's Eve and 5% of Mega-Sena’s yearly proceeds go towards them. The $69.000.000 jackpot record was set last year, but it could be broken in 2015 if the sales are high enough.
