Mega da Virada Rules

To enter the Mega da Virada holiday super draw, players fill out a lottery ticket with six numbers between 1 and 60. On December 31st, six winning numbers are drawn. Lottery tickets that match four, five, or all six of the winning numbers win one of the lottery’s three prize categories. The Mega da Virada is a major event in Brazil, with the majority of the adult population entering the draw and watching the live draw on television amidst the festivities.

Since so many people play to become Mega da Virada millionaires on New Year’s Eve, it is common for multiple winning tickets to match the jackpot prize! In 2010, four winners, one from Cariacica, one from Belo Horizonte, one from Rio Grande Farm and one from Pinhais, split the R$194 million prize! In 2012, there were three jackpot winners.

62% of all Mega da Virada profits go directly to the jackpot pool, called “sena” in Portuguese. 19% of proceeds are allocated to the second place prize, called “cinchona” and another 19% of profits are given to the third prize winners. Read more info about Mega da Virada here.
