THE Mega-Seine held the drawing of the 2235 contest in an event tonight at Espaço Loterias Caixa, in São Paulo, but again nobody managed to take the jackpot into play. The numbers drawn were 14-18-30-35-55-57. The bank had disclosed that the total premium that would be distributed if someone had settled all six dozen was R $ 170,414,041.16.
With the new accumulation, the main prize of Mega-Sena is now estimated at R $ 190 million in next Saturday’s edition (22). If this value is confirmed and there are winners, it will be the fourth biggest jackpot in the history of the regular Mega-Sena contests, that is, not counting Mega da Virada (see full ranking below).
Today’s draw awarded 133 bets on the corner band. According to Caixa, each of them will be entitled to an amount of R $ 69,161.57. The court made another 11,895 winning tickets with individual prizes of R $ 1,104.72. The total collection of Mega-Sena 2235 was R $ 159.5 million.
Mega-Sena has now completed 16 consecutive editions of regular contests with no winners in the main belt. Regardless of the special edition of Mega da Virada, the last draw that paid the maximum jackpot was on December 19, 2019, when a bet from Franca (SP) hit the six dozen alone and took over R $ 40 million.
When will the next Mega-Sena draw be?
The draw for Mega-Sena 2236 is scheduled for next Saturday (22), at Espaço Loterias Caixa, in São Paulo, in an event that will be held from 8 pm (Brasília time) with live transmission over the internet, at bank’s official YouTube channel, and with the possibility of simultaneous exhibition by RedeTV! (the official lottery calendar no longer informs you which draw will be shown on open TV, always one per day).
Next week, because of Ash Wednesday, Caixa decided to change the 2237 contest to Thursday (27).
