The peculiarities of El Gordo
The actual name of this lottery is "Sorteo Extraordinario de Navidad", but the name El Gordo (translated: the fat/big one) has become more commonly known. In this lottery one does not choose e.g. 5 numbers out of 50, but you buy a ticket with a serial number. Of these there are only 100,000 different ones, the ticket number being between 000,000 to 999,999. A n entire ticket costs € 200 - and because that would be too much for most lottery fans, a ticket is divisible into 10 pieces, the so-called "Decimos", at a price of € 20.00 each. With a partial ticket the player wins "only" 10% of the prize awarded to the ticket number.
Because the entire ticket, or its "Decimos" is usually sold at a single point of sale to different players, again and again the situation occurs that, for example, in a small village 10 inhabitants become millionaires in the same draw. It is also very popular to buy a ticket and share it with family members - so then in the case of a winning, the lottery makes an entire family happy.
So if you want to take part in a slightly different lottery (or perhaps want to give partial tickets as gifts to friends and family), then El Gordo is the right one for you. Buy your ticket online now at RedFoxLotto!
