Following hot on the heels of the gigantic El Gordo, Spain’s much-loved El Niño is the perfect way for lottery fans to bring in the New Year with a bang!
With over 70 years of rich history, El Niño (translated as ‘The Child’) is considered a national institution and, on Friday, 6th January 2017, millions of Spanish eyes will be on Madrid to see 40 top prizes of 2 MILLION EUROS EACH given away, alongside thousands of others!
This year - and for the very first time - World Lottery Club is giving you the chance to win a share of the El Niño bounty, too!
Operating in a format closer to a raffle than a regular lottery, El Niño draws random five-digit numbers from a range of 00000 to 99999. Much like a raffle or lottery, the aim is to match the numbers drawn, with prizes awarded based on the order, position, and total matched.
To take part, select the share you’d like to purchase using the dropdown menu. This can be 1/100th, 1/20th, or 1/10th of each five-digit number’s potential winnings. A larger share means a larger potential win should you be lucky enough to have your numbers drawn.
The amount paid for each prize depends on the official prize breakdown announced by the Spanish Lottery operator, Sociedad Estatal Loterías y Apuestas del Estado, for the draw.
Results can be checked after the draw here on the World Lottery Club website or independently online, and we’ll let you know about any winnings by email. You can also check your numbers by signing into your player account.
Getting involved in El Niño is easy. Match your lucky numbers to those drawn and you could win a share of one of the world’s biggest prize pools!
To take part in El Niño, select your five-digit number by clicking the Lucky Pick button. Next, you just need to choose the size of the share you’d like to purchase, from 1/100th of a share upwards! Any winnings will be divided by the size of the share you purchase. The bigger the share, the bigger your potential win!
Since its launch in 1941, El Niño has been traditionally held on January 6th, in line with Epiphany day, or El Día de los Reyes - the Day of the Kings. Join the millions of households across Spain in grabbing a chance to scoop a share of some huge cash prizes!
Second only to the mighty El Gordo, El Niño is one of the jewels in Spain’s lottery crown. The total prize fund is an incredible estimated 630 MILLION EUROS, and with around 37,000 winning combinations, this is a raffle that could get your 2017 off to a magical start!
