Mega Da Virada Jackpot Won by Three Ticket HoldersWednesday January 2nd 2013
The annual Mega da Virada draw was one of the final lottery draws of 2012, taking place on 31st December 2012. Having amassed a record breaking jackpot of R$244,784,099 by the time the winning numbers were announced, excitement amongst players across Brazil was running high, as players shared their results – and wins – across social media networks instantaneously! In the end, three lucky winners shared the grand prize.
Each lucky winner to match all six numbers from a possible 60 won an amazing R$81,594,699 each, which is the highest single ticket amount to be won on the Mega da Virada in the history of the draw. Plus, as there were only three winners to correctly match all six numbers, this means each winner won a record breaking amount too.
As well as the jackpot winners, there were 1,368 players to win R$27,413 by matching five numbers, plus 113,258 players to match four numbers and win R$473. A very well done to everyone who scooped a prize on the last day of 2012, and we hope 2013 is just as prosperous for lottery players all over the world.
