Spanish National Lottery
The purchasing of El Gordo tickets was traditionally reserved for only Spanish residents. However, the introduction of lottery ticket sales agents has meant that anyone can now enter the El Gordo from pretty much any country around the world and experience the excitement of this famous Spanish National lottery.
If this is the first time you have heard about the El Gordo lottery, let me point out just how crucial this lotto is to the Spanish population. The El Gordo lottery has been a national obsession in Spain for a long time with enormous appeal generated by the Christmas draw each year. The excitement is such that, 98% of the population play this Spanish lottery every Christmas.
There are several underlying reasons why so many Spaniards join in the Christmas El Gordo draw. Firstly, there is the incentive of the biggest lotto prize fund of any international lottery – €2.20 Billion! Secondly, there are 13,332 cash prizes on offer. Lastly, the likelihood of grabbing a cash prize in the Christmas game is a highly achievable 1 in 6.
With the level of interest that is paid to the Christmas El Gordo lottery draw, many people are oblivious to the fact that there are five extra El Gordo draws every year as well. These draws take place in January, March, May, July and November. While these 5 games don’t boast the huge prize fund of the Christmas game, they are substantial nonetheless, ranging from €78 million to €655 million. In addition, these draws offer roughly 3 times as many prizes as the Christmas draw and odds of picking up a cash prize of an amazing 1 in 3.
The Spanish Christmas Lottery operates in a different way to most lottery games. A whole El Gordo ticket ‘billete’ is very pricey, costing €200. However, these El Gordo tickets are split up into ten ‘decimos’ (tenths) costing €20 each. When acquiring your tickets you have the option of buying 1 decimo, a whole ticket, or a share of a ticket. If you don’t purchase the complete ticket, somebody else will purchase the remainder of your ticket. For example, if you obtain two decimos, somebody else buys three and somebody else buys five and your ticket scoops €1000, then you will collect €200, €300 and €500 in that order. Owing to the expense of buying complete El Gordo tickets, it is very common for families and friends to combine their lottery money and each purchase a single ‘decimo’ (tenth).
