The draws, which are held in Madrid on 22nd December every year and considered a national event, differ from standard lotteries in two important aspects. Unlike other lotteries, whose draws are generally brief and completed with relatively little fanfare, El Gordo de Navidad draws take hours to complete due to the sheer number of prizes and the format is closer to a raffle than a standard lottery.
The balls are drawn from two machines, called ‘bombos’, which each hold thousands of balls. One bombo contains balls inscribed with a pre-determined number combination, while the other bombo contains balls inscribed with a prize value. Each pre-determined number is printed on numerous tickets so, when a prize is selected to correspond with the number drawn, the prize fund for that tier will be shared between all of the players whose ticket matches the number drawn.

How to play
Lottery tickets of the game "El Gordo de Navidad" are not like tickets of other world lotteries. Instead of buying a single ticket, El Gordo de Navidad lottery participants can purchase as full tickets (isp. Ticket), and a tenth of a ticket (isp. Tenth). Similar to the Ruffle draw, participants buy pre-printed tickets, and each number can be purchased before 180 time, hence the name "Series", signifying, that many tickets with the same game numbers will be printed.
Distribution of prizes
Prize categories in each ticket:
|El Gordo main prize||1||4 000 000€|
|Second prize||1||1 250 000€|
|Third prize||1||500 000€|
|Fourth prize||2||200 000€|
|Fifth Prize||8||60 000€|
* The number of prizes is calculated by multiplying the number of winning combinations by the number of tickets in the series. for example, 180 x 4 000 000€ if the number of tickets in the series is 180.
† As this number of prizes is shown on one ticket, then the prize amount is divided by the number of players, who bought a share of the ticket. for example, if each of 10 players have 1 share of the ticket, then in case of victory, everyone will receive 1/10 of the ticket prize amount.
The table above shows only the first five prize categories, however full list (isp. Pedrea), including 100 prizes, will be presented on the day of the draw.

History of the creation of the Spanish Christmas Lottery
The history of the Spanish National Lottery goes back to the distant Middle Ages, when in 1276 year King Alfonso X of Castile or as he was also called Alfonso X the Wise first issued a decree regulating gambling. At that time, all kinds of private, usually charity lotteries. A little less than five centuries later in 1763 year King Carlos III issued a decree to hold the first state National Lottery, which was the prototype of the Italian, as you know the very first lotteries on a national scale. From the first draw, the lottery gained popularity among the population and enjoyed great success thanks to large winnings.
The original National Christmas Lottery draw was held 18 December 1812 of the year, even though, that Spain at that time was in a state of war of independence. From then until now, the El Gordo de Navidad lottery has been drawing every year on Christmas Eve. Even the civil war 1936-1939 years, during the division of Spain into two warring parties, Republicans and Francoists, did not stop the "El Gordo", but simply each of the opposing parties played lotteries independent of each other.
Since then, the drawing ceremony has remained practically unchanged and has survived to this day in its original performance.. For the Spaniards, El Gordo is a true national tradition, and its conduct looks more like a solemn ritual. The draw event begins 22 December in 8.30 in the morning and looks very exotic. Two huge steel ball-shaped drums contain small bone balls: in one - with ticket numbers, and in the other - with winnings. inmates from the San Ildelfonso orphanage in Madrid remove the balls and, as if to the motive of church psalms, sing their numbers and prizes. According to the old tradition, since 1771 of the year, inmates of the San Ildelfonso orphanage began to "sing numbers", when the first royal lotteries were drawn. Participation in the "singing of the circulation" is considered very prestigious for children. Intensive preparation and rehearsals begin at least one month before the holiday draw., after which the best pairs are selected. Every child has a big dream - to sing the winning number of the "main prize" - "El Gordo" and those, who are lucky to be the stars of magazines and TV for a while.
