How To Play El Gordo Navidad:

The raffle tickets are pre-selected lines of numbers on each ticket, so players need to choose a winning ticket as opposed to choosing a combination of numbers. Each five-digit number is repeated across multiple tickets. The exact amount of times a number is repeated will vary from draw to draw but can sometimes be as much as 195 times. These full tickets are divided further into tenths, known as 'decimos'. Most players purchase a tenth of ticket, called a ‘decimo’ but there is also the option to purchase a full tickets as well, known as a "billete". Players that select a matching ‘decimo’ ticket win one-tenth of the prize. Players holding the winning full ticket will win the full prize money.

When To Play El Gordo Navidad: The Spanish Christmas Lottery takes place every year on the 22nd December with ticket sales going on sale a few months before the draw takes place. The draw occurs in Madrid, Spain and Televisión Española and Radio Nacional de España broadcast the elaborate draw process. The chosen numbers are drawn from separate ball containers and sung out by school children from San Ildefonso School. Get your tickets at PlayUKLottery.com a few months before the draw.

If you thought that the entry process was unique, you may be even more surprised at the draw procedure itself (which has not changed since the first draw back in 1812). The winning numbers and the associated prize value are drawn from two separate ball containers and these are then sung out loud to the public by school children from the San Ildefonso school. This process is repeated for the many thousands of prize tiers in the draw. As you might imagine the draw itself can therefore take up to 3 – 4 hours to complete.

The draw takes place in Madrid, Spain and the entire draw is broadcast by Televisión Española and Radio Nacional de España.
