For all those who didn’t get any prize at the Christmas Lottery, the illusion comes again on January 6 with the “lotería del Niño”. This lottery appeared in 1941, although it does not appear in official documents until 1966. Its name is due to the coincidence with the religious day when the three Magic Kings adored the kid Jesús, which in Spain is the date in which the children receive presents from the three Magic Kings.
The El Nino lottery consists of 50 series of 100.000 tickets each one. Each “décimo”, a 10 % of a ticket costs 20 euros, like in the Christmas lottery. The first prize consists of 2 millions euros each serie, what means 200.000 euros per “décimo”.
Like in other drawns, there is a lot of superstition around the lotería del Niño. From choosing a number that coincides with a special date or a favourite figure, to attract the luck by rubbing bald heads with or the pregnant women. There is also people who prefers to play every year with the same numbers, with the hope of earning a prize.
Like for other drawn, now it is possible to play El Nino lottery and buy tickets and “decimos” online through the website of Lotería Valdés
