How to play LoterÃa del NiÃ±oto
A whole ticket for the LoterÃa del NiÃ±oÂ is made up of ten parts, each with the same number.Â Players can buy any number of parts for â‚¬20 each or they can buy the whole ticket for â‚¬200. Â 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 â‚¬2 million, thatâ€™s â‚¬200,000 for each part.Â If one person owns the whole ticket, all ten parts, then they will receive the whole prize.Â If the ticket is not owned by a single person then each part receives â‚¬200,000 for every part of the ticket they own â€“ one part = â‚¬200,000; 2 parts = â‚¬400,000, 3 parts = â‚¬600,000 and so on and so onâ€¦The odds of winning a prize are very good withÂ 1 in 3 ticket holders guaranteed to win something.
However, there is a catch this year.Â Due to austerity measures put in place by the government intended to stimulate Spain’s economy, anyone who wins above â‚¬2,500 has to pay 20% income tax on their winnings.
