The Ni-II centre in the cation of the title compound, [Ni(C6H12S3)(2)]Br-2. 4H(2)O, occupies a crystallographic inversion centre and is octahedrally coordinated by six S-donors from two aneS(3) ligands. Ni-S distances range from 2.3749 (16) to 2.4077 (15) Angstrom and S-Ni-S angles where both thia donors belong to the same ligand lie in a narrow range between 88.09 (5) and 88.67 (6)degrees. The water molecules participate in extensive hydrogen bonding with each other and with the Br- anions to form double chains with eight- and 12-membered hydrogen-bonded rings running along the crystallographic a direction.
