Who wants to be a millionaire? With the Lotofácil da Independência arriving, this is the question of the moment. And the prize is going to be the biggest in the history of the contest: R$ 150 million.
The Lotofácil da Independência began in 2012 and is considered the oldest special lottery in operation at Caixa Econômica Federal.
Last year, it paid R$124.9 million and, as in other special contests, such as Mega da Virada, the prize offered does not accumulate.
That is, if no one guesses the 15 numbers correctly, the prize will be prorated among the 14 number matchers and so on.
When will the draw be?
The Lotofácil da Independência draw takes place on Saturday (11), at 8 pm, and bets can be placed until 7 pm on this day, always based on Brasília time.
In addition to the lottery houses, it is possible to play through the official electronic channels: the Loterias Caixa application and the website (www.loteriasonline.caixa.gov.br).
The Lotofácil da Independência steering wheels are personalized with Brazilian flags. On the electronic channels, players can access the special contest page on the website menu.
According to Caixa Econômica Federal, the maximum time of 19h for betting is valid for all means and there may be congestion in electronic channels.
