Next contest, number 2492, takes place next Saturday, the 18th
It was not this time that another millionaire appeared in the square. According to Caixa Econômica Federal, no one hit the six dozen of the Mega-Sena contest 2491, held this Wednesday (15). The prize accumulated and the next contest, which takes place next Saturday (18), should pay the hefty sum of R$ 60 million.
The numbers drawn in the 2491 contest were 22-29-38-43-48-53. According to Caixa, 83 lucky ones made five dozen of the draw and will receive R$ 53,600.57 each. Another 6,198 players marked the court and will receive R$ 1,025.41 each. Contest number 2492 is scheduled for next Saturday as this is not an extra draw week.
The event for the Federal Lottery draws always takes place from 8 pm (Brasília time) with live transmission over the internet, on Caixa’s official YouTube channel. To compete for a Mega-sena jackpot and fulfill the dream of becoming a millionaire, it is necessary to place a bet of six to 15 numbers in the lottery credentials provided by Caixa, or on the bank’s special lottery website.
Bets must be placed up to one hour before the draw, that is, until 19:00, Brasília time. The minimum bet (six marked tens) costs R$4.50, and the player can choose from 1 to 60. Marking more tens to increase the odds is possible, but it is worth remembering that the price of the game rises to R$31.50. The most expensive bet, with 15 numbers on the same wheel, costs BRL 22,522.50.
