Tonight: €9.4 Million Jackpot in Spain's El Gordo Draw

Published May 25, 2014 by OCR Editor

Players from all over the world can take part in tonight's El Gordo €9.4 million draw.

Tonight, May 25th at 20:30 CEST, Spain's El Gordo lottery will draw for a jackpot worth €9,400,000 (around $13 million).

The El Gordo is one of most popular lotteries in Spain, drawing on a weekly basis every Sunday. While it has never reached the huge jackpots offered in bigger lotteries like the EuroMillions or America's Powerball and Mega Millions, the El Gordo often reaches sums like the one which is played on tonight; the biggest jackpot recorded in the lottery was €33 million which was paid out in 2011. Another reason for El Gordo's vast popularity is its donations to good causes: A large percentage of the lottery's profits are channeled to the funding of charity government programs across Spain.

How to Play

The El Gordo requires of players to pick six numbers: The first five are picked from a guess range of 1 to 54 and additional bonus number (named "key") from a range of 0 to 9. The key number almost always guarantees players a reward for attending the lottery with a small payout if this was their only number which came up in the draw.

Where to Play

People from all over the world can take part in the El Gordo lottery and any of Spain's other lotteries; this thanks to online lottery ticket agents the likes of Ice Lotto and The Lotter which have utterly squashed borders in all that has to do with lottery. But it's not only the realization of the global village which attracts players to use online lottery ticket agents, it is also the great convenience which turns the ordeal of going out and buying a ticket into one little click of a mouse.
