The "El Niño" lottery is one of the most popular lottery draws held in Spain and the second one held during the Christmas season after the Christmas Draw. It is traditionally held on January 6, coinciding with the feast of the Three Wise Men.
The lottery consists of the distribution of numbers between 00,000 and 99,999 and the subsequent drawing of different prizes among these numbers. As of 2014, each number is divided into 40 series, which in turn are subdivided into 10 tenths each. In this way, the final number that the participant can acquire is composed of the number itself, the serial number and the fraction. The tickets are called tenths because the bettor plays the "tenth" part of the amount of each series.
The price of each ticket is 20 Euros.
There is only one "El Niño" draw per year, and this is held every January 6 at 12:00 noon.
It is played by buying one or several tickets of the draw, and can be purchased either by the traditional tenth, or by the so-called tenth slip, similar to the slips of the Primitiva, Bonoloto etc... The tenth is the necessary document to participate in the draw. In each draw the numbers between 00.000 and 99.999 are played.
There are two main options to participate in the El Niño raffle:
