Something that all punters like is great odds. That is something that Spain’s el Nino Raffle offers to everyone who choses to take a punt. Some would say that it was the huge prize money that attracted punters from all over the world. Sure, the prize pool of US$692,000,000 has a lot to do with the attraction. But it’s the odds that punters really find attractive about the el Nino Raffle.
Spain’s el Nino Raffle only gets drawn once a year, on the 6th of January, so you still have a few days to grab your ticket. While the name el Nino means ‘the small one’ that’s only because the prize pool is smaller than big brothers el Gordo drawn on Christmas. Yeah, sorry I forgot to tell you about that one. :pull_hair:
Now, where was I? Oh yeah, I was telling you about the great odd that the el Nino Raffle offers those who chose to buy a ticket. The odds of winning a prize are an amazing 1-in-3! And you can win up to 8 times on a single el Niño ticket! Who would argue with that? :thumb_up:
Like most raffles you usually don’t get to choose your numbers and thats the same with the el Nino Raffle. Each tickets has 5 numbers ranging from 00000 to 99999. I copied the following from the PlayHugeLottos site where you can purchase your chance at becoming an instant multi millionaire.
Each number from 00000 to 99999 is printed multiple times in what are known as ‘series’. There will be many series for each number (usually about 50 or 60). Each series exist as a full ticket or “billete” which are then further broken down into “decimos’.
A decimo is effectively one-tenth of a full ticket and means that, should that 5 digit number win a prize, the ticket holder will one-tenth of the prize available. Purchasing a full ticket or billete will ensure 100% of the prize available for the ticket holder.
Winning numbers are drawn for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes, along with many other additional prizes. These prize tiers include matching the first and last digits of the winning numbers. Additional prize tiers also exist for matching numbers that are +1 or -1 of the chosen numbers.
* 1st place prize
* 2nd place prize
* 3rd place prize

Wouldn’t you like a shot at winning a slice of all that money? Something you should know is that if you’re lucky enough to win a share of the el Nino Raffle a 20% tax is applied by the Spanish Government on any winnings over €2,500.00. I reckon I can spare that if I win the big one.
