Changes in Mega-Sena drawings due to the Proclamation of the Republic Holiday
Check out all the changes in the drawing schedule for the week of November 13.
This week Brazil is celebrating a national holiday on Wednesday, November 15 for the Proclamation of the Republic, a date that commemorates the establishment of the Brazilian Republic in the country since 1889. And, as players accustomed to participating in Brazilian draws will already know, a national holiday always implies some extraordinary changes in the draw calendar.
This holiday, being celebrated on a Wednesday, will directly affect all the draws that are usually held on that day, such as Super Sete, Loteria Federal, Lotofácil, Lotomania, Quina, +Millonaria and Dupla Sena. All these draws will have to cancel or postpone their Wednesday contests since, as is tradition in Brazil, no lottery draws are held on days that coincide with national holidays.
But the suspension of Wednesday's lottery activity will also imply indirect changes in the rest of the draws, as is the case of Mega-Sena. In this sense, although Mega-Sena draws are held 3 times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (without coinciding with Wednesdays), this week the draw on Thursday, November 16 will also be suspended.
Many players have been surprised with the suspension of the Thursday draw as it does not coincide with the date of the national holiday. However, the justification for this decision is explained because, given that the day before (November 15) there will be no activity in lottery sales establishments, the time to buy and stamp bets for the 16th will be very reduced, so directly the lottery authorities have decided to suspend also the Mega-Sena draw on the 16th.
Thus, during the week of November 13 the first Mega-Sena draw No. 2656 will be held on November 14, 11/14 (Tuesday), while the next draw No. 2657 will be resumed on 11/18 (Saturday).
