EL GORDO DE LA PRIMITIVA
What is El Gordo de la Primitiva?
Not to be confused with the Spanish Christmas Lottery, El Gordo de la Primitiva is a weekly lottery in Spain. El Gordo loosely translates to “the fat one”, which refers to its prize. El Gordo was originally launched in 1993 and has a very loyal following. The draw is every Sunday at 9:30 PM (CET) or 8:30 PM (GMT). Final ticket sales cut of shortly before the draw. El Gordo has a guaranteed minimum jackpot of €5 million. Its biggest jackpot recorded was a massive €33 million.
How to Play El Gordo?
Players must match 5 numbers between 1-54 and the Reintegro number. A player must match all 5 numbers and the Reintegro number. The Reintegro number also works as a refund function. Refund numbers are chosen between 0-9 after the main numbers are selected. With El Gordo’s refund function, if a player has less than 2 hits with the main numbers but the refund matches the refund on the card, the player receives a refund on his ticket.
Can I play El Gordo outside of Spain?
