Get ready for a Summer Sensation: 1 in 3 bets wins a prize

El Gordo de Verano features a prize pot of €120 million and an incredible 1 in 3 chance of winning

El Gordo de Verano is the sizzling summer equivalent of Spain’s gargantuan Christmas lottery El Gordo. 

The Spanish Summer Lottery offers excellent chances of winning, with 70% of ticket revenue placed back into a staggering prize pot of €120 million or more. 

This annual summer event will be held on Saturday 2nd July this year.

El Gordo de Verano features a prize pot of €120 million and an incredible 1 in 3 chance of winning!

How it works

El Gordo de Verano works more like a traditional raffle than a regular lottery. Each bet carries a 5-digit number and it’s up to you whether you purchase a whole ticket or a share at a fraction of the price.

One share costs as little as €4.99!

Huge prize pool

El Gordo de Verano’s huge prize pool of €120m consists of an incredible 378,000 individual prizes. Even the second prize is worth almost €1.2m!

Much like it's Christmas-time cousin it gives you great winning odds – an unparalleled 35% chance of winning!

Drawn just once a year – don’t miss out

El Gordo de Verano is drawn at 1pm CET with subsequent draws for the lower prize tiers happening one after another. As there are so many different prize tiers this can take a while!

It’s the biggest lottery draw you’ll bet on all summer and it also offers by far the best chances of success!

How do I play El Gordo de Verano at Lottoland?

You can choose to buy a whole stake, which will entitle you to the entire prize tier amount should your 5-digit number be drawn. You can also purchase a share at a fraction of the cost. 

So, should your number come up, and you purchased a 1/10th share you’ll receive 1/10th of the prize for that tier. It’s also possible to buy 1/100th of a stake for which you will receive an equivalent share of the prize pot.

What are the chances of winning?

El Gordo de Verano offers a win ratio of over 1 in 3 at around 35%! This is considerably higher than the vast majority of lotteries.

Why should I play the Spanish Summer Lotto?

As with the Christmas El Gordo, the Spanish Summer Lotto offers exceptional chances of winning. The draw is hugely popular in its native Spain, with the clamour for tickets at fever pitch in the run up to the draw. 

How much or how little you want to get involved is also up to you. You can buy a full stake at a higher price and increase your chances of landing a major windfall, or you can buy a share for much cheaper and still retain a high 1 in 3 chance of winning a prize.
