Why Bet?

Why Bet on El Niño?

There’s no better way to ring in the New Year than by placing a bet on El Niño, Spain’s annual January raffle. This second-largest lottery event in Spain has a lot going for it – with 17 mind-bending prize categories, overall estimated odds at 1 in 3 and more than €600 million in payouts per draw!

How Does Online Lottery Betting Work?

Instead of entering the official El Niño draw, you will bet on a random El Niño raffle ticket. This means that instead of buying an actual ticket, you'll receive a set of El Niño draw numbers with your wager.

By gambling on sets of numbers in this way, you will be eligible to win the equivalent prize money for each tier – including the El Gordo First Prize – as if you had bought the ticket!

What is a Decima?

Because the cost of a full El Niño ticket is quite high, each ticket is divided into ten parts, or decimas.

You can bet on a decima or one-tenth of a ticket for a share of that prize tier. For instance, if your numbers come up, and you have purchased a 1/10th share, you will win 1/10th of the prize for that tier.

How Do I Win El Niño?

The total number of series and tickets represent the grand total of shares at stake. On the day of the draw, each 5-digit number and prize values are printed on separate balls, placed in 2 drums, and drawn to match a number with a prize.

There are 17 lucrative prize categories and over a thousand winning combinations. The amount you can win depends on what share of the ticket you bet on. It also depends on which prize tier your number was drawn from. For instance, the top prize tier has an approximate payout of €2 million!

Tell me About El Niño History & Good Causes

Established in 1941, El Niño is another lottery inspired by Spain’s classic Christmas Lottery, El Gordo. Translating to “The Little One” in Spanish, El Niño has religious overtones as its name was inspired by the Adoration of the Magi.
