How to Play Christmas El Gordo Raffle

Christmas El Gordo raffle tickets all have five digit numbers ranging between 00000 and 99999. Each ticket is split into 10 equal shares. These shares are also known as ‘decimos’ in Spanish. Each share is pre-printed with the raffle number on them.

Look on the left of the screen and you’ll see which numbers are still available. You can’t purchase more shares than what’s available. Now you have various options to play:

  • Either pick and buy one share of a raffle ticket number, or
  • Pick several shares with one raffle ticket number. This will increase your winnings if that number wins a prize, or
  • Purchase shares in different numbers so your probability of winning increases.

It’s easy to pick the amount of shares you want to play by using the (+) and (-) buttons.

If you are a winner, your prize amount will relate to how many shares you have of a raffle ticket number. If your raffle ticket number wins €100 000 and you own 4/10 shares you will get €40 000.

The draw will take place on 22 December 2019.

History of Christmas El Gordo Raffle

The Christmas El Gordo raffle has been around since 1892. Now it’s the largest lottery globally in terms of prize pool and how many tickets are eligible for prizes.

Every year the draw is held around Christmas time and the event is an extravaganza. Spanish media cover the event and everyone loves the participation of Children of San Ildefonso School. The students assist in drawing the wooden balls, distributing the prizes and best of all they sing out each winning number.

Rules of the Christmas El Gordo Raffle

The Christmas El Gordo raffle is a unique lottery game because of the high number of tickets or shares available. This is possible because all numbers—between 00000 and 99999—are repeated in 170 series. These numbers with series references are printed on the Christmas lottery tickets. Now each ticket is divided into tenths or ‘decimos’. These are the ‘decimos’ (shares) you can purchase.

During the draw you’ll see two drums:

Throughout the evening draws take place. The host for the evening takes a ball from each drum, shows them to the audience and the children sing out the numbers.

If your number matches a drawn raffle ticket number you share the drawn prize amount with the other buyers of tickets or shares.
