The game of Lotería del Niño

What is the "El Niño" lottery?

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.
