How to play Lotería del Niñoto

A whole ticket for the Lotería del Niño is made up of ten parts, each with the same number.  Players can buy any number of parts for €20 each or they can buy the whole ticket for €200.  A common way to play is to buy a whole ticket as a family, friend or co-worker syndicate.

The first prize winning ticket is worth €2 million, that’s €200,000 for each part.  If one person owns the whole ticket, all ten parts, then they will receive the whole prize.  If the ticket is not owned by a single person then each part receives €200,000 for every part of the ticket they own – one part = €200,000; 2 parts = €400,000, 3 parts = €600,000 and so on and so on…The odds of winning a prize are very good with 1 in 3 ticket holders guaranteed to win something.

However, there is a catch this year.  Due to austerity measures put in place by the government intended to stimulate Spain’s economy, anyone who wins above €2,500 has to pay 20% income tax on their winnings.
