tips for playing dupla sena

#Strategie1: Identifying Hot numbers, Cold numbers, Overdue Numbers

To use the hot, cold, overdue strategy, analyze the results of your chosen lottery – see which numbers have been drawn recently and which haven’t, at least 50 drawings is needed to get a decent sample size.

Hot numbers: Picked most frequently

Cold numbers: drawn less frequently overall.

Overdue numbers: are ones that have not shown up in recent weeks.

Some players claim that creating a set of winning numbers by mixing hot, cold, and overdue numbers gives players an edge.

Hot NumbersCold Numbers

#Strategie2: Pick Traditional Lucky Numbers

According to a poll run by mathematician Alex Bellos, seven is not surprisingly the most popular lucky number in the world.

Seven days of the week, seven wonders of the world, seven continents, seven seas, and the list goes on.


Other traditional lucky numbers include three (as in “good things come in threes”) and four.

#Strategie3: Pick Traditional Lucky Numbers

Pick numbers that have a personal meaning to you. For example, birthdays, a wedding anniversary, or the birthdays of kids and/or grandkids.


Apart from dates consider the number of kids you have or the house number of your childhood home – whatever feels lucky to you.

#Strategie4: Use Numerology to Pick Lucky Numbers

There are a lot of different ways to use numerology to find lucky numbers. One is to create a table with the numbers 1 – 9 at the top and one letter in each column below. A = 1, B = 2, and so on. After the ninth letter, I, you’d wrap around again so that J = 1, K = 2, and so on.

You can then plug in the letters of your name to get one digit for each letter. Add those digits together to end up with a lucky number.

#Strategie5: Lucky Number Generators

The simplest way to find lucky numbers to play is simply to use a generator. Lucky number generators use numerology, or perhaps simply randomness, to find numbers for you.

Just a note About #LotteryStrategies

Finding and playing lucky numbers is based on fun more than facts.  Mathematically, every number has an equal chance of being chosen as a winner.

Why Dupla Sena is so popular?

Not only does the Dupla Sena offer players “top prize” payouts, but it has multiple ways and chances to win.  As previous results and jackpot payouts will show, the Dupla Sena offers players of any income a chance to win and dream BIG! The Dupla Sena the most pay-outs throughout the prize categories, which makes it a solid choice nationwide and abroad.

Is Dupla Sena a Scam?

Absolutely not! The Dupla Sena was launched in in 2001, an is still going strong over 19 years later.

Unfortunately, fake wins with other institutions have become a regular occurrence – Scammers are getting increasingly sophisticated in their attempts to get your money or personal details. Be alert and protect yourself from being scammed by following our tips.   

A lottery scam is an attempt to fraudulently extract money from someone by pretending to be a legitimate lottery company or winning player. It has sadly become a too common method of deception as such scams prey on people’s desire to win money and the popularity of big lottery games.

Win notices from foreign lotteries are even more suspicious. Not only do foreign lotteries have the same restriction as domestic lotteries, but it is also illegal to sell tickets for foreign lotteries across international borders.

Therefore, unless a player actually was in a foreign country and bought a lottery ticket, foreign lottery notifications are frauds.

Only buy tickets from authorized lottery retailers.

Offers to sell international lottery tickets by mail or online are usually illegal.

If you didn't buy a lottery ticket or participate in a second-chance lottery game, you didn't win no matter how convincing a text message may sound.

The lottery doesn't notify players when you win; players alone are responsible for checking your winning tickets.

Players are NEVER required to pay money up-front to receive a winning lottery prize.

lottery scam is a type of advance-fee fraud which begins with an unexpected email notification, phone call, or mailing (sometimes including a large check) explaining that “You have won!” a large sum of money in a lottery.

What to do:

If you receive a letter or email claiming that you won a prize for the Dupla Sena but did not enter, it is strongly recommended that you:

Delete or destroy the letter or email immediately.

Do not open any link contained in a suspicious email.

Do not respond to, or contact, the sender.

Do not disclose any personal or financial information.

Do not send any money.

If you have already responded, break off contact with the fraudster immediately.

If you have provided personal or financial details, alert your bank immediately.

If you receive a suspicious email, or believe you have been the victim of internet fraud, report it to the police.


If players feel that their computer or device has been hacked or infected with malware or ransomware, run a virus check immediately!

If players suspect one of your online accounts (e.g. your bank account, email, online shopping account or social networking site) has been compromised, change passwords immediately. Most reputable websites provide step-by-step instructions for how players can recover a hacked account.

Clues to look for:

The email is sent from a free webmail address (e.g. @hotmail.com, @yahoo.com, @gmail etc.)

The letter or email starts with something vague like ‘Dear Winner’.

Scam letters are often on poor quality, photocopied letterhead (although some will include a genuine business address in an attempt to provide legitimacy).

Strict time limit to claim the ‘prize’. This is intended to put the potential victim under pressure and deter them from seeking advice or investigating the matter further.

Confidentiality is often demanded as a ‘condition of winning’. Again, this is to deter the recipient from seeking the advice of friends or family who may be more familiar with this type of scam.

Poor spelling, grammar and syntax are usually a good indication that the letter or email is a scam.

Scammers will often try to take advantage when you’re feeling vulnerable and try to extract more money from you through a follow up scam.  A common follow up scams includes:  Offers from a law enforcement agency to investigate your scam and retrieve your money for a fee. Law enforcement agencies do not charge for their services

Joining a lottery “club” will not improve your chances of winning foreign lotteries although Con artists will claim that pooling your money with other people means you can buy more tickets and have more chances to win.

The biggest note to remember – It’s impossible to win a lottery without buying a ticket and never share your banking or personal details with anyone!

The chances of recovering money from foreign crooks may be even worse than that of actually winning a lottery. Most lottery scams are executed by con artists in other countries, sometimes using U.S. addresses to disguise their real locations. Differences in legal systems, difficulties of conducting investigations in other countries, and expenses involved in pursuing cross-border fraud make the chances of getting your money back very, very slim to none.
