Information about El Gordo

The Spanish Christmas lottery offers one of the largest lottery prizes in the word as players stand a chance of winning up to €2.5 billion in prizes while the jackpot prize or the El Gordo stands at €4 million. The draw takes place once every year close to the day of Christmas, as it is held every 22 of December.

To play in the Spanish Christmas lottery, you must be 18 years and above and the tickets already have series of 5 numbers imprinted on them so that when the draw is done, those tickets containing the winning numbers drawn qualifies for a prize in the lottery. “El mayor premio es compartilo” is a slogan associated with the Spanish Christmas lottery and the English translation is “the greatest prize is sharing” and that is What makes the lottery special. Series of tickets often contain the same numbers so that if that number wins then the prize money is shared among all those that are having that number. During the draw, a ball containing a 5 digit number is drawn from a pool of others with each winning number having its prize associated with it.
