Mega-Sena result: check the odds of winning

Seeing the result of Megasena and realizing that you won a lottery, consequently getting rich overnight is the dream of many Brazilians. The way to place a bet is simple, with a minimum cost of just R\$4.50.

Have you thought about investing R\$4.50 and becoming a millionaire? So it is. But it’s not that simple. To get an idea, according to the Box itself, for a simple bet (six tens), the probability of taking the jackpot is only 1 in 50,063,860.

The larger the investment, the greater the chance of winning.

In another calculation, investing R\$22,522.50 for a 15 tens bet, the probability of hitting the prize is 1 in 10,003. Fifteen tens is the maximum limit allowed by Caixa.

The probability increases, but it’s still low. So it’s not uncommon to see the statement “how to win the lottery” as a kind of analogy of something improbable or someone who is very lucky.

Many people have made the same bet for years, believing it will win them a lottery. But nothing is certain, it will all depend on luck.
