Loteria del Nino history

You will probably find it amusing that El Nino means “the child” in Spanish. The lottery is named after “Dia de los reyes”, or the day when the Three Kings came to present gifts to the baby Jesus (“el nino”). The first raffle took place in 1941, while in 1966 El Nino became an official part of Loteria Nacional. Just for your interest, Loteria Nacional hosts two other popular Spanish raffles, particularly La Primitiva and El Gordo.

As the lottery began, its draws were held on January 5. Since 2000, however, they are taking place on January 6. In case you were wondering, the first ever draw of El Nino consisted of four sets of 42,000 tickets, each ticket divided into 10 shares. The price per share was 15 pesetas. The first prize, Gordo, was 500,000 pesetas (for a series of four). That year, the lottery sold an impressive total of 166,668 tickets, which was 93% of all the tickets available! The following year, in 1942, the number of tickets changed to 56,000, while the price grew to 25 pesetas. 
Now, the price for tickets changes from year to year too, just like the distribution. The following years might bring even greater winning odds and prizes, so don’t miss the news!

Loteria del Nino prizes

El Nino is operated by the Loteria Nacional and supported by Spanish government. It offers 50 jackpot prizes, each amounting to €2 million for a whole ticket. Yes, the system of prize division indeed differs from those applied by most other lotteries. A great thing is that the prize pool increases from year to year. In 2017, the prize pool was €630 million. In 2018, we remind, it is €700 million. 

Loteria del Nino results 2021 and statistics

An unusual fact about Loteria del Nino winning numbers is that those of Gordo, the top prize, have ended with the digit zero for as many as 20 times! Interesting statistics, isn’t it? Two other most popular Gordo’s digits are seven and nine. There is also the least popular digit to end the code of the top prize, particularly three. Finally, an amusing fact is that the number 20 has appeared at the end of Gordo for six times! It’s quite curious what other number patterns we might find as soon as we check Loteria del Nino results 2021!

Buy Loteria del Nino tickets

As mentioned above, there are 100,000 tickets, each printed with a code between 00000 and 99999 on it. Each ticket has 50 copies and is divided into 10 shares. Players can purchase either an entire ticket or individual shares. In case they win, the amount of their prize will depend on how many shares of a winning ticket they own.

Similar to previous raffles, every ticket contains 16 prize categories, as well as 37,920 possible combinations of Loteria del Nino winning numbers. In other words, even a 10th part of a ticket gives you a chance to win a share of the €700 million pie!
