New Year's lottery in spain. Fat.

Fat jackpot

Four million wins the whole ticket, состоящий из десяти тех самых купонов. Respectively, каждая выигрышная «десятина» получает по 400 thousand euros. При этом номер выигрывает во всех 170 series, то есть обладателями приза в 400 тысяч могут стать 1700 people in the country. Due to the fact that tickets are often bought collectively, luck often falls together: whole families win, companies, bars, even in small villages. Кто-то бежит отмечать это в киоск, where did you get the ticket, но большинство предпочитает не распространяться — мало ли что.

Of course, for 200 лет существования лотереи реальная ценность выигрыша сильно изменилась. В начале XX века на «жирный куш» можно было купить целое здание. Предел мечтаний нынешних счастливцев — погасить ипотеку, buy a car, distribute debts. Moreover, in 2013 году государство впервые за годы существования лотереи ввело налог в размере 20% на выигрыш, exceeding 2500 euros. В 2018-м, true, барьер повысили до 10 000 euros. Meanwhile, the number of players is only growing..

Из года в год с июля по декабрь испанцы всей страной сначала охотятся за билетами и «кусочками» билетов рождественского розыгрыша, потом с увлажненными глазами слушают, how lottery kids sing the winnings to someone else's number. Sigh, говорят очередное «ну ничего, на будущий год точно повезет» и идут дальше с просветленными лицами, потому что началось Рождество и кого-то настигла удача. Шанс поймать ее невелик, но на всякий случай знайте: чаще всего в испанской рождественской лотерее выигрывали номера, заканчивающиеся на 5, — аж 31 time!

Lottery history

Сначала я хотел поставить историю лотереи в начало статьи, но потом мне показалось, что это не самое важное. Although personally I was interested to study this material

The first organizer of Loteria Nacional Espana was C. D. Карвахаль — директор экономического объединения Кадиса.

Чем же руководствовался профессор Карвахаль, выдвигая идею о создании лотереи?

The motive behind his action is very simple.: в то время Испания воевала за свою независимость и испытывала хронический недостаток денег. Lottery, проводимая в национальных масштабах (а Loteria Nacional Espana — первый проект подобного рода в Испании) was supposed to become such a source of funds for the state budget, который не уменьшал бы благосостояния населения.

In November 1811 года была создана инструкция по проведению лотереи, а первый розыгрыш состоялся спустя несколько месяцев — 4 Martha 1812 of the year.

Розыгрыши первых лет проводились там же, где впервые была высказана идея о создании лотереи — в Кадисе. FROM 1814 of the year, когда Испания освободилась от натиска армии Наполеона, тиражи национальной лотереи стали разыгрываться в столице страны — Мадриде. Туда же спустя некоторое время переехала и штаб-квартира лотереи, где она располагается и поныне.

To buy a ticket

King Fernando VII, придя к власти, decides to change the name of the lottery: во время его правления разыгрывается «Lotería Moderna» (в переводе — «Современная лотерея»). However, after the death of Fernando VII, the lottery again acquired its old name.

1850 год — значимая веха в истории крупнейшей лотереи Испании: baskets were used for the first time, изготовленные из металла. Later still 40 years, in 1892 year, организаторы Loteria Nacional стали проводить отдельный розыгрыш на Рождество — Sorteo de Navidad.

IN 20 веке Loteria Nacional продолжила бурно развиваться. Первые бумажные билеты лотереи были запущены в продажу в 1940 year. Совершенствование технологий позволило любителям лотереи не тратить время и деньги на то, to find out the results of the next drawing: с этого момента тиражи стали транслироваться по телевидению.

В 90-е годы прошлого века организаторы Loteria Nacional стали активно заниматься благотворительностью. IN 1994 году прибыль от проведения лотереи были передана в Ассоциацию Испании по борьбе с раком, а спустя ещё год доходы от крупнейшего розыгрыша в Испании помогли провести чемпионат мира по горным лыжам.

FROM 2002 года все выигрыши в Loteria Nacional выплачиваются в евро.

Недавно крупнейшая лотерея Испании с размахом отметила своё 200-летие: историческая дата наступила 4 Martha 2012 of the year. По этому поводу среди любителей лотереи был разыгран специальный приз в размере 15 million euros.

General information about the lottery

A fairly famous draw with a long history is the ElGordo lottery. She is originally from Spain and is held from the end 18 century. Is considered, that this lottery has made thousands of people millionaires. This lottery is popular even among celebrities. They say, that Napoleon Bonaparte himself played it.

Она имеет несколько тиражей: Christmas, summer, weekly. Билеты всегда пользуются спросом и не только в Испании. В игре предусмотрены дополнительные призы, which is very nice.

For some people, this lottery has become a family tradition.. Special, of course, Spaniards love to play it. Twice a year there is a real excitement in this country with tickets.. Most popular edition - Christmas. Some donate tickets to family and friends around this time. Draws are held on Sundays every week., ticket sale ends just before the draw.

Pros of the ElGordo lottery:

  • relatively low ticket price (from 1,5 euro for one bet), you can buy several tickets at once;
  • often you can "beat off" the amount of the ticket value (for the minimum number of matches);
  • like a super prize (which is quite big)

El lottery results proudly inspire players to buy tickets again and again. Tickets do not always pay off and sometimes the winnings are zero. But here, as in any game,victory and defeat succeed each other.

Playing the game

There are two main schemes, on which the draws of the Spanish lottery game are held: traditional and plural. Let's consider each of them separately..

The traditional scheme of the game

This system assumes the presence of two lottery drums. The first lottery drum contains balls with ticket numbers, who have a chance to be victorious in a particular game. The second lottery drum contains balls with numbers, under which certain winnings are hidden.

The list of prizes is written on a special board. It is installed on the stage even before the draw starts..

Children are most often invited as presenters. They take the balls one by one from both lottery drums.. First, they get the ball from the 2nd lottery drum, to determine, for which prize will be the further struggle. Next is retrieved 5 balls from the 1st lottery drum.

It is from the five numbers of the first lottery drum that the serial number of the ticket is made, the owner of which becomes the owner of the claimed prize. Numbers line up from left to right, starting with the first ball drawn.

Multiple game scheme

This circulation system has been used since 1962 of the year. The Spanish lottery periodically practices its application.

What is the main difference between these two drawing schemes?

The main difference is the number of lottery drums. The traditional scheme assumes the presence of two lottery drums, and plural - five. Each of the five lottery drums has nine barrels, which contain numbers from 0 to 9. The serial number of the prize ticket is formed from the barrels of the lottery drums, taken one by one. The order of extraction of numbers is mandatory - they start with the first lottery drum and end with the fifth.

Winning tickets are determined the same way, as in the traditional drawing scheme.

How to play Spanish La Primitiva?

It is very difficult to play foreign lotto straight from Russia. It will be difficult for you to get a ticket, and if it turns out to be winning, will have to go to another country for a prize.

Fortunately, lottery dealers work in Russia, like Lotto Agent. Service employees buy tickets for participants, monitor the progress of the drawing and, in case of winning, transfer the winnings to your account. Residents of any country can participate. The only condition is that you must have 18 years.

The agent successfully cooperates with 20+ lotteries and has already paid out winnings to customers in the amount 15 million dollars. Lotto Agent offices are located in European countries, in Australia and the USA.

Other distribution

The distribution of the prize fund in the New Year's drawing of the "Russian Lotto" lottery really turned out to be unique, no joke - for winnings in the amount 1 and 2 ruble (101 and 102) spent a billion (1 068 631 230) rubles! Nearly half of the prize pool was smashed to dust! Why do we need such small wins? There are three reasons, they are all good for the organizer, but not for players:

  • большую часть таких призов участники поменяют на билеты следующих тиражей
  • organizer can speak, that he has millions of winners (winners, true, in total 100 rubles)
  • This distribution made it possible to assert, that every second ticket will be winning

Meanwhile, everyone who wants to play the lottery should be advised how to avoid draws, where they promise, that every second ticket will win. Because the prize money is not taken from the organizer's pocket or out of thin air, он собирается со ставок игроков. Именно поэтому обещание приза в каждом втором билете с высокой вероятностью позволит участнику лотереи лишь вернуть стоимость одного билета из 2-3 purchased. Get 100 rubles from 200-300 spent. What is the meaning of such a lottery?

Moreover, a large number of small prizes significantly reduces the chances of a bigger win! Для понимания — в новогоднем тираже лишь один билет (of 42,5 million tickets) won the jackpot - that is, the probability of this winning was 1 chance out 42,5 million! The same applies to winnings by 1 million rubles, all of them turned out to be 40, and this means that the chance to receive such a prize was 1 out of a million. Not too impressive, true?

Meanwhile, в обычном розыгрыше (when no one plans to leave 2 barrel) шансы на крупный выигрыш более интересны. For example, you can take the following circulation, № 1213. Of 4 million tickets (4 196 813) this time it was 19 winnings by 1 a million. I.e, in this case, chance was 1 of 220 885 (its useful to note, that this is not a statistical probability of winning, namely, the ratio of the number of large prizes to the number of tickets sold in a single draw)

Was it possible to distribute the prize fund differently? Of course! As an option, could not have won the last two kegs (101 and 102 ruble), and allocate the released billion to 1000 (thousand!) winnings by 1 a million. Just imagine - a thousand people could get a million! Это был бы мощный пиар — почти в каждом крупном городе оказался бы человек (or even a few) выигравший крупную сумму. Это уже стоило бы отпраздновать!

Why is it profitable to play foreign state lotteries?


1.First of all, due to huge jackpots. The prize fund of European and American lotteries exceeds hundreds of millions of dollars, and the Jackpot amount never falls below several million. for example, the minimum Jackpot of the famous American Powerball game - $ 10 000 000, and there is no limit on the maximum jackpot amount. In January 2016 of the year the lottery played 1,6 billion dollars as the main prize. Выигрыш разделили трое участников.

2.Foreign lotteries are well organized. They are made for, so that people want to play them - which is absolutely logical. for example, many foreign lotteries have several prize categories. It means, that even the smallest number of guessed balls will bring money. So, at the pan-European EuroMillions game 13 prize "levels", а для выигрыша достаточно правильно отметить хотя бы один выигрышный номер на билете.

3.Many lotteries have additional options, such as "Cartoonist", which increases the winnings to 10 time, bonus balls, giving a second chance to win the Jackpot, additional Reintegro numbers, pre-printed on the ticket, - they allow you to receive a partial refund, paid for the ticket. All this also adds pluses to the treasury of the attractiveness of foreign lotteries..


5.The customer is always right. Since the organizers of such lotteries are the state, their quality, transparency and honesty are closely monitored, to avoid unpleasant situations and damaged reputation. Such names, like Powerball, MEGA Millions, La Primitiva или SuperEnalotto — всегда синонимы качества.

Sailors, who preferred brandy to a lottery ticket, happy

Usually ship crews buy lotteries in ports, where they stop during the pre-Christmas period. Sailors often tell a sad story, which happened to their colleagues from the ship El Castillo de Butrón in 1957 year. Before heading to Senegal for fishing, the crew bought provisions in the shop of the village of Bermeo (Basque Country). Its owner often shared tickets for free. However, the sailors from this ship, instead of the lottery, preferred to receive two bottles of cognac., which the owner of the store gladly gave them. Later it turned out, that one of those tickets was winning.

Conclusion

Лотерея La Primitiva — национальная лотерея Испании с одним из крупнейших в Европе призовым фондом. Twice a week, La Primitiva participants claim a super prize. And this is the minimum 3 million euros.

The advantage of the La Primitiva lottery is the high probability of getting a prize. With probability in 10% the ticket price will be refunded: it's enough luck with the Reintegro number. Well, if you can correctly name at least three barrels of six balls, dropped from the lottery drum, then the investment in the ticket will increase in 8 time.

Another plus of La Primitiva - simple rules of the game. In fact, this is a regular lottery "6 out of 49" - guess 6 kegs from 49 in the lottery machine and receive a prize. Moreover, the probability of winning is greater, than in the classic "6 out of 49", because there are numbers Complementario and Reintegro.

This concludes the manual for the Spanish national lottery La Primitiva. Despite, that this lotto is officially held only in Spain, residents of Russia have a chance to participate in it. We think, that lottery lovers should take part in La Primitiva - there are not only simple and clear rules of the game, but also honest organizers, as well as high chances of winning.
