How to play Caixa lotteries online?
Bets on Caixa lotteries can be made online via the website or via the Caixa Lotteries app. You must be over 18 and register with your CPF, email address and have a credit card for payment (payment is processed by Mercado Pago, Caixa’s provider for collection).
Although they are made on the Internet, online bets are only valid for those who are in the national territory – the system checks the geolocation of the bettor. The bet is tied to the bettor’s CPF, which means it is not possible to bet on someone else’s name.
The value of the bets is the same as that charged to the lottery, as well as the same times of registration, closing and drawing. On the site, however, the minimum amount to bet is R$30; the maximum is R$945.
