How El Gordo Works
El Gordo tickets are printed as 5 digit numbers ranging from 00000 to 99999. Each number is printed 180 times so there are 18 Million tickets in total. Each instance of the same number is called a "serie".
If a number is drawn for a specific prize it means that prize will be paid out 180 times as there are 180 versions or "series" of each ticket.
The price of 1 ticket is €200. This is too expensive for most people so each ticket is divided into 10 fractions called "décimos".
Each décimo is worth €20 and will win 1/10th of every prize the ticket wins.
Each Big Fat Lottos El Gordo syndicate enters 10 different décimos into the draw and these décimos are selected in such a way that each syndicate is guaranteed to win at least 1 cash prize.
