It used to be the case that you could only play El Gordo de Navidad if you lived in Spain or knew someone who did. Fortunately, the internet has brought all such barriers down, and now anyone can participate in this exciting game. All you have to do is visit our El Gordo page and click on the banner that appears at the top of that page.
As with other lotteries, the more you spend on tickets, the more chance you have of winning. The overall odds of winning any prize in the El Gordo de Navidad game are around 1 in 6, and there are more prizes paid to winners than in any other lottery in the world.
Because the El Gordo de Navidad game at Christmas is so special, many players like to invest more than usual to maximise their chance of winning an enormous amount of money. You could buy tickets for yourself only or you could consider buying tickets as a family (or other syndicate group) and agree to share any prizes that are won as a result.
However you approach the game, there is no doubt that playing El Gordo de Navidad is the perfect way for lottery players to celebrate Christmas. But be quick – we are fast approaching the El Gordo de Navidad draw on Tuesday 22 December, so you should buy your tickets early if you want to guarantee your participation.
Of course, participating in El Gordo de Navidad doesn’t mean that you have to ignore your weekly EuroMillions game. Last week’s EuroMillions jackpot rolled over to give us a double rollover jackpot of €43 million (around £39 million) for the game this Friday 11 December. As usual, you can play EuroMillions online and give yourself a chance of winning without even leaving your computer!
