How El Gordo differs from traditional lotteries

A lotto game usually requires a player to choose a group of numbers from a specific number range and an additional bonus number. In the UK National Lottery, for example, a player must pick 6 numbers (inclusive) and then choose a bonus number from the same range. A player must match their six chosen numbers to win the jackpot. If no ticket holder matches all drawn numbers within a week, the jackpot will be rolled forward and increase in size each week.

This area is unique in that only a limited number of tickets are printed for the Christmas El Gordo lottery draw. As a result, winners are guaranteed in each draw.

A complete El Gordo ticket (called Bilte) costs more than a single ticket for a regular lottery game like the UK lotto. A British resident will pay just PS1 to buy a ticket for one UK draw. El Gordo tickets cost EUR200 each. Because¬† live draw sdy¬† of the high cost of this lottery game, you can buy complete tickets in ten pieces (Decimos), which are less expensive than buying the whole thing. They will cost EUR20 each. To make the game more affordable, it is common for friends and family to split the ticket’s cost.

Only a small percentage of people win large amounts of money in the UK lottery, and the rest are disappointed every week. The Spanish lottery, however, offers a more rewarding experience. Each of the 180 winners received EUR3 million in the 2006 Christmas Spanish lottery draw. The 2005 draw saw the winning number sold in Vic, Catalonia (population 37.825). It was worth approximately EUR500 million.

The odds of winning a cash prize in the Spanish lottery are much higher than those of the UK lotto. This is a 1 in 6 chance to win a cash prize, compared with 1 in 52 when you play the UK lottery.

Lotteries like the UK lottery generate new tickets every time a pound of money is spent. This means that tickets will never run out for any of their weekly draws. The El Gordo is a different lottery because only a limited number of tickets are printed, and they are gone once all are sold.

Due to an increasing number of online lottery ticket sellers, the El Gordo generates great excitement not only in Spain, but all over the globe. To avoid disappointment, it is important to secure your desired number tickets as soon as possible.
