The Brazil Dupla Sena lottery is Brazil's foremost lottery game. This lottery game is unique in that it allows players to use a single set of numbers to play in 2 consecutive lottery draws. The Dupla Sena lottery came to prominence in November 2001 when it was introduced by the Caixa Company. Owing to the overwhelming success of the Mega-Sena lottery, the Dupla Sena was a sure hit. By 2010 this lottery game recorded a jackpot payday of R$11 million– the equivalent of US$5.4 million.
Getting started with the Dupla Sena is fairly easy. Players simply need to choose 6 numbers from a pool of numbers between 1 and 50. 2 different sets of numbers are drawn in every Dupla Sena lottery game, thereby increasing players winning chances. It is possible to play a 3-line entry, or alternatively, players can opt for a systematic form. This produces multiple entry combos comprising 8, 9, 10 or 11 number combinations. This method of playing the Dupla Sena lottery has the effect of increasing players’ winning chances.
This lottery game allows players to enjoy a quick pick selection – by way of the random number generator – or the standard manual selection of numbers. Since the Dupla Sena lottery features some of the best winning odds in South America, its popularity has skyrocketed in recent years. The reason for this is largely a result of the double draw format. Winning the Dupla Sena lottery requires players to correctly pick 6 numbers from a pool of numbers between 1 and 50. This jackpot lottery game begins at R$300,000 and the good news is that there are no limits on the number of rollovers permitted.
The Dupla Sena lottery features 3 categories of prizes, with the most coveted prize being the first place prize with 6 numbers. Other prizes are available for players matching 5 numbers, and players matching 4 numbers. When players win a lottery prize in the Dupla Sena, they have 90 days to collect their prizes and payouts are made in a single lump sum or in annual payments. Unlike several other lottery games, all winnings on the Dupla Sena lottery are taxed at 13.8%.
73% of all proceeds from this lottery are allocated towards a combination of administrative maintenance and government organizations. 27% of all lottery proceeds go towards the winners. In the event that winning players do not collect their prizes, the money will be gifted to the Fund for Student Financing of Higher Education.
