Taking home a big lottery prize is a dream for many and the goal for all of those who play their lucky numbers. And this Lotto247 player has achieved that goal and is now a Mega Sena winner! Round of applause please!
How Mega Sena Works
Mega Sena is one of the simplest lotteries to play and has some of the best chances to win. With just one set of numbers ranging from 1 to 60, players must choose the 6 lucky numbers that they think will be drawn and will make them a millionaire.
Mega Sena has a total of 3 prize tiers. The Seine, or main prize, where players need to match all 6 numbers. The second tier is known as Quina, here players need to match 5 of the 6 numbers drawn. And lastly, we have Quadra, which is the third and final tier where players need to match 4 of the 6 numbers drawn.
In all the tiers, the jackpot is divided by the number of winners of the prize. The following is the percentage that is allocated for each prize tier of the total amount collected:
- 35% is divided among the Seine winners
- 19% is divided among the Quina winners
- 19% is divided among the Quadra winners
The value announced by the lottery for the Sena prize is already equivalent to 35% of the collection. Taxes and fees are deducted before jackpot amounts are announced and the amount you see is what you walk away with if you win.
What are the chances of winning the Mega Sena jackpot?
Each of the Mega Sena prize tiers has different odds of being won. This is what your chances look like:
- Sena: 1 out of 50,063,860
- Quina: 1 out of 154.518
- Quadra: 1 out of 2.332
Pretty great right!
