Quick Lottery Overview

 

El Gordo is an increasingly popular weekly Spanish lottery organized by Loterías y Apuestas del Estado, with draws taking place every Sunday. It easy to remember and pronounce, but do actually know what the name means?

Literally translated, it stands for “the fat one” and with the jackpot amounts in play, it’s not difficult to see why, as the game offers truly “fat” prizes. The last version of the lottery was launched in 1993 and its starting jackpot is €5,000,000.

The Story of El Gordo de La Primitiva

 

The Spanish are no strangers to lotteries with their excitement for the game dating all the way back to 1763 when one of the earliest lotteries was established – Spain’s Royal Lottery.

It took decades of transformations, as it was even ended for a while in the 19th century, before the game was re-launched in 1993, with its current weekly drawing format introduced in 1997.

All in all, this is one extremely likable and popular lottery, so let’s look at how to play.

How to Play the Spain’s Most Popular Lottery?

The playing format is nicely balanced for exciting, multi-million prizes and decent winning odds too. Players need to choose 5 main numbers, ranging from 1 to 54 and a bonus number from 0 to 9. Match all correctly and you’re sure to collect a life-changing sum! The game also features multiple prize categories to guarantee the chances of walking away empty-handed after a draw are slim. El Gordo is drawn once a week – on Sunday afternoon at 13:00 Spanish local time. There are 9 categories offering a prize, which makes this a great lotto even for novice players, who can win only by guessing correctly the bonus number.

Some of the massive, notable winnings include €26,000,000 won in April 2007 and €27,000,000 won in March 2008. So a serious lotto it is then, helped by the generous, guaranteed starting jackpot of €5,000,000, which along with the unlimited rollovers makes 8-digit prizes a completely standard occurrence. Also worth mentioning is that 22% of the allocated prize pool goes towards the top-prize, surely a factor contributing to those huge jackpots.

How to Win the Jackpot?

As drawing is only once a week on Sundays, players have more than enough time to carefully choose their playing numbers. Pay attention to the jackpot, as it frequently gets enormous, but also you can use LottoPoint’s statistics feature to select your numbers.

• Play “hot” and “cold” numbers

Once you’ve recognized the most and the least frequently drawn numbers, make sure you create balanced combinations, including both and go with your gut feeling. Just as important – don’t limit yourself with birthday dates only, as this lottery has 54 numbers in play. In other words – include high numbers above 31 also and a mix of odds and even too.
