El Gordo is the Spanish Christmas lottery. For this lottery, 100 000 numbered tickets are being sold. The price of one entire ticket is 200€. But fractions, the so-called “Decimos” can be bought as well. The draw is a grand ceremony, with children singing the drawn numbers.
There is a large round cage containing 100 000 wooden balls with the ticket numbers. And then there is a second cage, containing 1807 balls determining which prize is won. One of these balls is for the “El Gordo” – meaning the jackpot. Two balls are drawn at the same time, and the children then sing the results.
