The Mega Sena Lottery’s History
This lottery was launched in 1996 and has gained popularity in Brazil. Mega Sena is managed by one of Brazil’s biggest banks, Caixa Economica Federal, and gives players two chances every week to become millionaires. On several occasions, this Mega Sena lottery has reached a jackpot of nine figures.
The largest recorded Mega Sena jackpot prize was R$263.2 million, around €50 million. This Mega Sena jackpot was split between three winners in December 2014. The largest jackpot prize won by one ticket was recorded in 2015, when the winner went home with R$205.3 million, around €39.6 million.
When Mega Sena was launched, it had a complicated process of drawing several balls at random from two spinning cages. The drawing process was later simplified, and now the balls are randomly drawn from one spinning cage.
The jackpot grows and grows in size with rollovers and special draws.
