Dia de Sorte has a grand prize that starts at R$300,000 and accumulates if it is not won. You need to match all seven winning numbers to get the grand prize, but you can also win prizes by matching four, five or six.
You do not need to match the Lucky Month in order to win any of these prizes. For example, you still win the top prize if you match all seven numbers but not the lucky month. There is a separate prize, fixed at R$2, for anyone who matches the lucky month.
The following table shows all the different ways to win and prizes.
|Prize Tier||How to Win||Prize|
|Jackpot||Match 7 Numbers||70% of Prize Pool|
|Tier 2||Match 6 Numbers||30% of Prize Pool|
|Tier 3||Match 5 Numbers||R$20|
|Tier 4||Match 4 Numbers||R$4|
|Lucky Month||Match the winning month||R$2|
The fixed prizes are paid out before the rest of the prize fund is distributed between winners in the top two tiers. Prizes expire 90 days after a draw day, and are then transferred to the National Treasury for investment to benefit education.
The odds of winning the Match 7 prize with a single bet are 1 in 2,629,575, but you can increase your chances by selecting more numbers as this gives you more combinations. The table below shows how your odds improve as you play more numbers.

The odds of winning the Lucky Month prize are always 1 in 12, because you cannot choose more than one month. While the cost increases as you select more numbers, you can split those costs with others by playing in a Bolão. In Dia de Sorte, there are syndicates set up with up to 60 shares. The number of shares you purchase determines how much of the prize you receive if your Bolão does win.
Another advantage of playing more numbers is that it helps you to win multiple prizes. For example, if you play 15 numbers and win the top prize, you would also win 56 times in tier two, 588 times in tier three and 1,960 times in tier four due to the combination of numbers entered.
