Spanish lottery La Primitiva has made thousands of its devotees happy winners over more than 200 years of its existence. Spain has the biggest number of lotteries which have been founded by two state agents: Loterías y Apuestas del Estado and La ONCE.
In fact, Primitiva is the flagship of the Euro Lottery dating back as far as 1811. In Spain, the most famous national tradition is Christmas Lottery (El Gordo de Navidad) which is held annually on December 22, just before Christmas. It offers a huge prize pool which normally exceeds €2 billion. Spanish people’s affection for lotteries is proved by the fact that Spain is the only country in the EU which participates in both largest international Eurolotto projects: EuroJackpot and Euromillions.
