El Niño translates as ‘the small one’ which actually couldn’t be further from the truth with the jackpot prize currently sitting at over €700,000,000! If you missed out on winning one of the world’s Christmas lotteries then try your luck again here with Sorteo Extraordinario de El Niño.
How to Play
Firstly, remember this is a raffle and not a lottery, therefore it works slightly differently. Rather than choosing your numbers you choose pre-numbered tickets. These ticket numbers consist of 5 digits which range from 00000 to 99999.
Due to there only being 99999 numbers, each ticket is printed approximately 50/60 times. This is known as a series. Each series can be purchased as a full ticket or as a decimo. A decimo is one tenth of a ticket, so if you purchase this and your number wins a prize, you will only win 10% of it. Obviously if you purchate the full ticket you will win the full prize. This works in a smiliar way to a lottery syndicate.
Where to Play El Nino
As mentioned, El Niño takes place annually on the 6th of January. This is a Spanish raffle but thanks to the magic of online lottery sites we can play this raffle from India. Lotto247 will be selling raffle tickets up until the day of the draw or as long as their stocks last!
Of course its the main jackpot prize that takes all the headlines, and at €700,000,000 then why shouldn’t it! But there’s loads of other prizes on offer, and actually you have a great chance of winning something. Your odds of winning this online raffle are 1 in 3 and you can win more than once on a single ticket.
You can win if your numbers are +1 or -1 from the winning numbers or if you match a few of the winning numbers. There are many, many prizes available which you can see more details of when you play the raffle.
