About Spain - El Gordo de la Primitiva lottery

The El Gordo de la Primitiva (translated to “the biggest of the old lotteries”) is a Spanish lottery started in 1763 by the Marquis of Esquilache. The old format allowed people to choose a combination of five numbers from 1 to 90. This lottery, one of the oldest in the world, was discontinued in 1862, but revived in 1985 with the introduction of the Loteria Nacional. Its new format now allowed people to pick a five-number combination from numbers 1 to 54 and the Reintegro number from 0 to 9.


Draws are held once a week on Sunday at 9:30 p.m. Spanish time, at the studios of the Loterías y Apuestas del Estado headquarters in Madrid, Spain.
