First, according to the ordinance published in the Federal Official Gazette, the readjustment will be effective from January 1, 2020. However, Caixa must still define when the new prices actually take effect. The last time the lottery was readjusted was in 2015, when the value of Mega’s bet went from $ 2.50 to $ 3.50.
Increases in other lottery games were also allowed under the ordinance signed by the ministry’s Secretariat for Evaluation, Planning, Energy and Lottery. The Double-sena, Lotofácil and Lotomania will be priced at $ 2.50 and Quina will have a minimum value of $ 2.00. In addition, the sports lotteries also had readjustments: Loteca and Timemania will have bets of $ 3.00 and Lotogol will now cost $ 1.50.
However, the new price may only be charged after disclosure in the country’s media outlets and over the Internet, at least three business days in advance of the date when the highest charge begins.
