How does it work?

The lottery uses two ruffle drums: the first one randomly draws 5 main El Gordo winning numbers and the second one draws the bonus ball out of the additional El Gordo numbers. The tickets matching the drawn El Gordo numbers are the winning ones. The ticket fully matching the combination of 5 main and 1 additional El Gordo winning numbers can claim the jackpot. The game totally offers 9 cash prize categories. The prizes amount is directly dependent on ticket sales revenue and the number of winners. However if matching just the “Key” number players will get back the money spent for the ticket in other words the last prize division is equal to the starting fee.
The lottery's minimal guaranteed prize of the top category is set at €5 mln. In case there is no one lucky enough to guess the jackpot-winning combination of El Gordo winning numbers, then 50% of the jackpot will be rolled over into the prize pool of the next draw. In this way the top prize may reach €22 mln.
