The biggest jackpot in the game’s history had formerly stood at €70.2 million, which was shared by two players on 22nd February 2014, and workers in lottery booths across the country are being kept exceedingly busy by hopeful players looking to throw their hats into the ring for a shot at a massive nine-figure sum.
Although the odds of bagging the big prize are long, at one in 139,838,160, players can usually become instant millionaires simply by matching all of the main numbers, without the Reintegro. There were two ticket holders on Saturday 10th October, who bought their entries in Barcelona and Benicarlo, who each won a little over €1 million for doing just that at odds of one in 13,983,816.
Spanish lottery fans will be spoilt for choice when it comes to big-money games this autumn, with tonight’s gigantic La Primitiva jackpot coming just weeks before the next EuroMillions Superdraw on Friday 6th November, when there will be another guaranteed €100 million on offer.
You can take part in both games, wherever you are, by taking advantage of an online lottery concierge service. If you are in Spain, La Primitiva tickets can be bought from authorised retailers across the country, where you will also be able to snap up entries for EuroMillions.
