The traditional Rio de Janeiro lottery, better known as “Jogo do bicho” (animal game), had its results on Tuesday, April 7th. The winning numbers were numbers 10, 11, 15 and 36, which correspond to the first four prizes of the draw.
The results were drawn manually by the principal regulator of the game,
Antonio Almeida, with the presence of four representatives of the lottery, also known as “bicheiros” (people who make money from the game), including Claudio Gil, president of the Bicania Institute.
“Jogo do bicho” is a very popular game in Rio de Janeiro and the reason of this popularity is the large prizes offered. In addition to the four prizes mentioned, the draw also offers a thousand smaller rewards.
The prizes associated with the numbers of the prizes indicated usually go for large amounts of money reaching around R$ 1 million ($180,000).
The winners of the draw can receive their prizes at the store where they bought the ticket, but if the prize is higher than R$ 1,332.78 ($240) the winner need to go to the institute’s headquarters to receive it.
The “jogo do bicho” has been legal in Rio de Janeiro since November 2018, as the bicheiros learned how to turn what was once an underground game, into a regulated and compliant activity.
For the whole state of Rio de Janeiro, the turnover generated by the game bet, both the official institutions, as well as the bicheiros, is estimated at around R$ 3 billion ($540 million) per year and it is expected that this number will increase in the future.
Overall, this week’s draw of the popular “jogo do bicho” was a success, attracting more players and generating more revenue as expected. It is expected that as the game continues to grow, more winners will be able to receive the prizes they are entitled to.
