Mega Sena Jackpots

With the odds of winning the Mega Sena jackpot being 1 in 50,063,860 (assuming a basic entry of 6 numbers) it isn’t surprising that sometimes the top prize isn’t won by any player. A rollover feature allows prize money that isn’t won to be carried forward to the next Mega Sena draw, and this can help to generate some truly colossal jackpots.

The biggest Mega Sena jackpot on record was worth R$64.9 million, and that was won in 1999 by a Mega Sena player in Salvador.

Those dizzy heights haven’t been reached since, but there have been several Mega Sena jackpots that have come within kicking distance. For example, in 2007 a R$52.8 million jackpot was won, and in 2008 the biggest Mega Sena jackpot weighed in at R$53.1 million. Add in a R$45 million jackpot at the beginning of 2009 and it is clear for all to see that the massive Mega Sena jackpots keep on coming.
