Flamengo Fan Wins Lottery in US

A resident of Peabody, Massachusetts, red-and-black Frederico Sampaio collected his prize money on July 1st.

Brazilian Frederico Sampaio has made the Estácio de Sá samba maxim of 1995 valid: wearing red and black is for no one. The new millionaire from Peabody, Massachusetts, chose the Flamengo jersey as the ideal outfit to collect his state lottery prize, last July 1.

Frederico won the jackpot of one million dollars (about R$ 5.4 million) by winning the instant game “Double your money” in the lottery. The Brazilian, therefore, chose to go there to collect the money dressed in a Flamengo jersey and a cap with the American flag. The record obviously went viral on social media.

Receiving and using the prize

Sampaio chose to withdraw the prize of over R$ 5 million in a single installment. Otherwise the value of the prize would drop to 650 thousand dollars (about 3.5 million reals at the current price). In an interview with the Massachusetts Lottery, the Rossoneri player said he intends to spend the money with his family.

Will fortune smile on Flamengo in 2024?

Leaders of the Brazilian championship, Flamengo seem to be going against the grain in 2023. The team has exceeded expectations in terms of absences due to call-ups and could even say goodbye to their Copa América period at the top of the competition.

The moment, however, is not the result of chance or luck. The numbers do not allow you to lie. Flamengo has, for example, the best attack of the Brasileirão 2024, with 27 goals in 15 games. It is not surprising that they have an advantage over their opponents in terms of goal difference, which acts as a tiebreaker. With two losses, Tite’s team is also the one that has lost the least in the competition.

The match against Fortaleza, next Thursday (11), is essential to guarantee another group leadership for Flamengo. The draw with Cuiabá was costly and the rivals have reduced the gap to just one point.
