The purpose of this article is to highlight some of the important differences between common conventional lottery games and the world famous Spanish lottery, El Gordo.
In a standard lottery game a player is generally required to pick a batch of numbers from a specified number range as well as an additional bonus number. For example, in the UK National lottery a player if required to choose 6 main numbers from 1-49 inclusive and then a further bonus number from the same range. To collect the jackpot, a player needs to match all of their six main chosen numbers with those numbers drawn. If no player manages to match all the drawn numbers in a given week, the top prize is rolled forward to the next week increasing in size as it does so.
The December El Gordo lottery draw is significantly different in this area; there are only a certain number of tickets made available for this draw and due to this, winners are guaranteed in every draw.
The cost of purchasing a full El Gordo ticket (Billete) is also vastly different from purchasing a ticket in a normal lotto game, like the UK lottery. Acquiring a ticket for a single UK National lottery draw costs a UK inhabitant precisely 1 pound. El Gordo tickets will, on the other hand, set you back 200 Euros each. Due to the significant expense of playing this lotto game, entire tickets are divided into ten parts (Decimos) costing a more reasonably priced 20 Euros. It is consequently fairly common for groups of friends or family members to split up the cost of an entire El Gordo ticket in order to make the game a more workable proposition.
In the UK lotto a miniscule percentage of individuals ever win large sums of money, with the majority left disappointed on a weekly basis. The El Gordo on the other hand gives that winning sensation to a greater number of individuals. In the 2006 El Gordo Spanish lottery draw, 3 million Euros were paid out to each of the 180 winning billetes. In the El Gordo lottery draw held in 2005, the winning number was sold in the town of Vic in Catalonia (population 37,825), whose inhabitants collected somewhere in the region of 500 million Euros.
The El Gordo lotto also presents considerably improved odds of collecting a cash prize compared to that of the UK National lottery; with the El Gordo lotto you have a very nice 1 in 6 chance of grabbing a cash win compared to 1 in 52 when playing the UK National lotto.
When playing lotto games such as the UK lottery, extra lotto tickets are made available every time a pound is spent which means that tickets never run out for any of the weekly draws. The El Gordo lotto is completely different because only a certain amount of tickets are ever printed and once they are all sold no more will become available.
The El Gordo not only brings about huge joy in its native Spain but now all around the world due to the ever increasing quantity of online lottery ticket sales agents. It is therefore crucial that you secure your desired quantity of tickets as soon as they become available, to avoid missing out.
